Default yet another gfx post...


Ok I have two questions...I tried searching and came up with this post

but it wasn't exactly what i was looking for. If i missed another one please let me know.

First is about a new graphics card. I have been playing FarCry and have gotten the BSOD a couple times so I thought that i would upgrade my video card. I don't really want to spend that much close to 100 as possible. I only want nVidia. I haven't had problems with them and I love them. Is a 6600GT realistic? Or what would you guys recomend? I would like specific brands also.

Second question. I have a nVidia 5700 (not a LE) and I was wondering if I tried to sell it, what a fair price to set would be?

Thanks for all your help guys.

EDIT: NVM I'm just going to get the 6600GT if i can find a good deal on it. Any lesser card isn't worth it and anything more expensive is just to expensive. I'm going to post in the Buy/Sell/Trade forum for the card.
