    Was wondering what graphics card I should go for as a replacment for my XFX 6800GT. Was thinking of going ATI as I wasn't too impressed with having to replace my 6800 GT 3 times in a single year, looking more and more like this 4th one is going to die.

    Have only tried a few games but in anything source based and Serious Sam 2, everything appears to be in slow motion, I even move slower in CS:S and look in Slow-Mo to other ppl! :confused:

    Any thoughts,

    Thanks,

    Turb

    7900 series is out soon. No official dates yet but probably in March ;)



    .... and no offense intended but it sounds like a problem with your PC rather than the graphics card. I dont know anyone who had to replace theirs 4 times

    Depends on how much you want to spend & whether its PCI-E or AGP?

    AGP - X850XT (faster than the 6800GT)
    PCIE - X850XT
    or if you really want to step up X1800XT (great price at the moment).
