The deal was, I built up a new computer a couple years ago and never upgraded my video card. Well, now it seems like its having some issues pushing some of the movies I try to watch in 1080p. So it seems like it may finally be time to upgrade.
99% of the time I do massive graduate research and web browsing. (insane ram use. I run firefox, Opera, and Chrome, all at once for different uses.) So silent, most of the time but needs to have better kick than the 7600gt im using now.
i5 quad core. (w/thermaltake massive heatsink, w/ duct and two 120fans connected to zalman fan speed adjusters.)
Nexus Value 430 psu
Currently using gigabyte 7600gt 256mb (OLD)
Pushing Benq G2400w (w/ broken power button, :<)
1920 X 1200
Needs: Watch HD movies 1080p, blue ray stuff. Maybe, someday, I would like to play Diablo 3 and skyrim at medium-high settings but not ultra high. Is this possible for under $100?
