I was playing CS Source (bout 3 hours strait) And My graphics card went Bazoooka! The fan that covers the GPU. (i think) well it fell off and dont ask me how. and cut into the card ( and fell onto my Modem and snaped it). so now i have to use the crapiest card in the world...thats right the Radeon 7000 VE 32mb!!. what the hell happend and what could i have done to stop it? My card is the nVida Geforce 5900 XT 128mb.

Let me get this straight:
The FAN fell off your vid card, and snapped your MODEM in half. Is that right?

Get neither, get a current generation grapfics card like a 6600GT. These will run current games far better than either of thoes and dont cost that much.

The 6600 only comes in a PCIE flavor, which i doubt you have if you had a 5900XT.

I never bothered looking at the link. Ive never seen a AGP 6600 and i never thought that nVidia would bother making one. But as it is AGP then grab it, its better than the 5900XT.

lmao. This is the most funniest accident I've ever heard.

Anyhow, I'd reccomend to get a card that the fan sits up instead of down. Probably a Geforce 6800 GT

have u thought of looking in to 3Dlabs?

http://www.3dlabs.com
they have cards that wipe other cards out BUT they are a lil up in cost..but they have cards up to $2,500 for the top of the line,they do have quite a few other cards down the line and if u look around u might be able to fine one in your liking..so take a look..i am running one and i can play any game on full video specs and on dual screens with out as so much as a single glitch..

i would recommend the Wildcat Realizm 100(AGP) / 200(AGP) or 800(PCI-X) but they do have others that are also good...i use the Wildcat Realizm 200 (on this computer) and the 800 on our workstations...they are KILLER...but,that is just another idea for you to look in to...

Well, I thought your budget was $115, so I found this one. But if you want to spend more for the 6600GT, then it's not a bad buy
