Your best bet is the Palit 650, although your crashing problem is probably a driver problem with the 6750.

Problem with it is, your processor will hold most of your performance gains back while playing games like Skryim or BF3. Also, I'm a bit weary on your PSU brand too.

Actually i've already been to warranty with this game card. After several tests , they replace it with another game card from the same producer. So i guess this game card was not a good choice from the beginning . I tried several drivers but all had the same result , crashing after a while playing a game. Now i want to buy another video card , but i can't decide.

Well in that case then it might also be a temperature issue. Did they ever tell you to monitor your temps while gaming? Crashing can also be caused by the card not getting enough power from the PSU. If the PSU isn't good quality it can have a bad ripple in the 12v rail under load which would cause crashes.

Neah , the PSU is doing fine , i've already tested it . I also checked the temperatures , are normal. In full load somewhere between 50-60 degrees . I guess is just a bad video card. I bought it because it was so cheap , like 70-80 dollars.

If you want to change your video card then you can try to use Nvidia video card.
