Windows 7: Need suggestions

Need suggestions

The NVIDIA Geforce Galaxy 210 I installed in my new machine has a bad fan bearing or some other problem.
Someone else posted a similar problem yesterday also.

What would be a good replacement ?
Some where in the mid-price range. Don't do any games but, if it will give better overall performance then it might be the way to go.

Well you certainly don't need to worry about a psu which is good.

Depends how much you want to spend, some would say the 7790 amd and 650ti nvidia are midrange, others would say the 7850 amd and 660 are.

At any rate, all of the above cards would suit your purpose well.

Could you be a little more specific for what you are referring to, as I have no clue.

Around $150. budget.
Your right about the PSU, this is the main reason I did get it.

Ok for that price range you would be looking at either the Amd HD 7790 or the Nvidia Gtx 650ti.

Do you have a preference over Amd or Nvidia?

I would not know the difference in them.

I do not have a PCI express 3.0 just 2.0

Don't worry about that, it's backward compatible and you will not lose any performance.

Just have a look at a few cards on newegg, Evga is a very good brand for a 650ti.

What is your opinion between the two brands ?

Is there much of a difference ?

I have no preference at all, I switch between brands all the time.

It might be wise to look for some benchmark comparisons between the 2 models to see what performs better for the money. I am not on my pc at the moment so can't look and link to any.
