Hi folks,

Been lurking for quite a while and spending some time here, basically because my GFX card also died and cannot play any game.
I have however just received a message from the company that should've fixed my GFX card and stated (grossly):

"Dear X,

Your GFX died, the value of your card as of date is 397 EURO, would you like to get a new card (within the same price range mind you) or would you like to have your money back?"

I paid €420 for my card and still had warranty on it (1 year). So of course I will be demanding my money back (full price mind you), but I am in the need of a new GFX FFXIV being the main game.

So after my defect nvidia 295 what kind of card would you recommend?

460 (save money till nvidia 490 (495) comes out, or for my next pc)
480

or other?

Well, this morning that comes to... $550.

You could get a 460 and still buy a mid-range hooker with that.

Ayway seriously, I like my 460. Works great. But you probably shouldn't wait on video cards unless you know something is going to be absolutely awesome and that it comes out in like a week. There's always going to be something bigger and better.

Yeah I wasn't planning on waiting for it, but I do wish a gfx that can hold it's own for the next 3-4 years at least.

460 looks great, especially price/performance ratio.

On a more positive note, he won't risk getting an STD from his video card.

You guys clearly aren't playing the latest and greatest games. STD technology is all the rage.
