I built my system about 3 years ago and last night my first component went down. My 8800GTS 512 gave out.
It's been a while and I'm not as up to date hardware wise as I use to be. Need to replace this ASAP as I work, and play, off of this computer.
What's an equivalent card out now, and what's a step up or two?
The guy at the local PC shop suggested an ASUS 440 (ASUS ENGT440/DI/1GD5 GeForce GT 440 (Fermi) 1GB GDDR5 PCI-E) for $105.00, the 550's he had were all over $149.99.
I found an ASUS 550 TI on Newegg http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814121435 with after rebate for $109.00
Is the 440 about straight across? Do I need to step up to the 460, or the 550? Sorry if I'm speaking a different language... and thanks for the help.
