I have a Crucial and love it. When I was doing my research it was ranked just below Intel in reliability.

Also, him suggesting the same card over and over and over and over again just cause he has two of them, it gets ****ing annoying.

Any recommendations on video cards to replace a GTS250? I spent around $120 on the card when I built my desktop around 2yrs ago I think. I've been able to run every game I play on highs at 1920x1080 up until recently. So I think I'd like to keep the new card in that same price range...maybe?

Also as much as I hate to ask this I've got a Phenom X4 955 in my desktop right now would I see any benefit by replacing the 955 with a FX-6100 or an FX-4100? I know I would see a much bigger performance boost if I switched over to Intel but I don't see myself being able to justify the cost on a new mobo+CPU for a desktop I primary use for gaming and a little Maya modeling.

Disk drive took a dump on me today. Pulled on out of my old dell and realized it ran IDE tape and my mobo doesn't support or even have a IDE spot

Just bought GTA today too

550ti or 7770, I would imagine. As for the CPU, keep the X4. BD is horrendous.

I got a similar question to our resident expert jagov. I installed new Nvidia drivers for the GTX 460 on a different hard drive than what my OS and most of my games are on. I don't think it should, but does this matter?

I am getting no better than 4 FPS in tropico 3, and no more than 7 in Portal. I'm reinstalling the drivers again right now.



EDIT: I should try things before I give up already and ask questions. I don't think the last update worked right, getting 100+ fps in portal and 60+ in tropico 3 now.

How you think a 670 is going to work better than a 680 is beyond me.
