Yes Maximilian, that's what I was looking for. I just want to make sure I don't downgrade when I replace it. I really don't understand what I am looking at if I look at or read any charts on performance for the cards, so I figured the best thing to do was ask people who do. You all have helped out a bunch!

The 570 is last gen, and also if you want to overclock id avoid the 570 like the plague...The ref cards have 4 VRMs on them which is anemic to say the least. Turning up the voltage on a 570 is like having a stack of paper close to a bonfire - the damn thing [weak vrms] will go up in smoke sooner or later. The 600 series is where its at for Nvidia, the quality all around is better and they have better protection for their weak VRMs this generation.

AMD cards is my bias though, but even though im biased looking at fps charts does show the 7850/7870 dominating its nvidia counterpart at this time...Facts are facts and If you are not sold on only having a Nvidia card then its a no brainer to get a 7850/7870 as they are the better performing cards.

Thanks guys. I went with the majority of your advice and got away from Nvidia and got :

MSI R7850 Twin Frozr OC AMD Radeon HD 7850 2GB GDDR5 DVI/HDMI/2xMiniDisplayPort PCI-Express Video Card R7850 TWIN FROZR 2GD5/OC

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ls_o02_s00_i00

Hopefully this is good. Anyway I appreciate your advice. I will say one thing, This card is so small and lkight comapred to the 295 with alot better cooling and alot quieter!

Maybe I missed what country you are from bolter, but shouldn't you get a better deal from newegg?

Ah, good. When I saw that price I almost choked on the Moo Goo Gai Pan I was eating.

Bastard.

That card was a nice pick,i had one of those and personally i loved it to death especially when i overclocked it to 1050/1450 using 1.225v.

Put the fanspeed at 60% and for the most part i rarely saw it hit over 60 cel.
