Default ISO Gfx card input Please (upgrading for a 6800gt)


I had had many many problem with my geforce 6800gt 128mb and have actually gone through 2 exchanges of the cards. I am lookin to try out ATI since I have had so many problms with geforce.

Can anyone recommend an equivelant or better card on the ati side?

And/or do you think that if I upgraded to a higher geforce model I might have more stability?

I have troubleshot my 6800 problems for almost a year and they keep coming. So i am looking for something that performs and works hehe

Thank you for any input!

The 7900GT is about the best bang for your buck out right now. They can also be voltmodded for a drastic performance increase. However, I have heard many cases of people having problems with their 7900GT's. If this bothers you, which I wouldn't doubt, seeing as you're trying to get away from problems, ATI's closest equivalent to the 7900GT is the X1800XT. However, they are more expensive, so I still recommend the 7900GT.
