My graphics card seems to have... well, worn out I guess. I've had it probably for about 2 years, give or take along with my PC, so in a way I should've expected this.

Anyway I'm gonna need some help choosing a new GFX card, preferably Nvidia. Fact is that I'm knowledgeable when it comes to computers, but I'm afraid my knowledge pales in comparison to some of the other members here. My previous one was a GTX 295, so I'm guessing upgrade upgrade upgrade, as long as the price is reasonable. Either that or simply use the PC as an internet terminal, nothing else.

Anyway I also might need advice on a type of cooler, with a reasonable price if you have any ideas, as I think it might have sped up the death of my GFX card.

I have a GTX 560 by EVGA (the standard one, not the fancy Ti version). It holds its own pretty well with the stock fan doing just fine (runs 70 on max load and idles at 35).

Somewhere around a 1000 dollars, but I prefer to do it with maybe 700.

Also thanks Neo, I'm gonna consider that one.

Also considering the fact that I'm gonna use my black fund, I prefer to get unscathed. I mean yes I could buy some super strong GPU, but it's gonna be bread and butter for the rest of the year, maybe two.

i concur. a nVidia GTX560 preferably Ti/DC II series is a rock-solid mid-range card which can definitely hold its own against today's games and for at least 2 years to come.

It's SLI too so you can buy two of them if you have the funds and put them together.

That's a pretty huge budget for a GPU. The fastest single GPU right now is 7970 for $550-$600. I recommend getting the Asus or XFX Black Edition 7970 as they're fitted with dual fans custom design instead of the single fan reference design. If you prefer nvidia, then I suggest you wait a few months for their new release of 6xx/7xx series.

Don't get a gtx560/ti/ti448 because then it's downgrade from your old gtx 295. Here's the latest graphics card hierarchy chart from tom's hardware: Link

Thanks a lot. I will consider that. Technically the budget isn't solely meant for a GPU, as I know the top quality GPUs cost around 600$. But it is costly ofc, and I'd hate to lose my entire budget.

I just wanted to state that the ceiling is pretty high and if need be I could reach that amount, but as I said I'd rather not. Ability and willingness. Always a difference.
