Unhappy ATI 4270 x2 hd

Hi all ,

I have a ATI graphics card (4870 HD x2) , I just wanted to know which card I can replace it with ?
It's quite a few years old now and I am having trouble keeping it at optimal temperature .

Thanks in advance ,

JT.

Are willing to change it only due to temp problems? How bad are your temperatures?
What is your max budget for a new card?

Clean it out, repaste the chips. Do not run it at 106c any longer, as you're going to fry your card.

Here is a replacement in your price range.
XFX Radeon HD 7850 Double Dissipation Core Edition with Ghost Thermal AMD Graphics Card - 1GB - FX-785A-ZDF4 - Scan.co.uk
