You are welcome, the EVGA has a 3 year warranty and is leaner on the Power supply requirements.
Both are very good card for the money and casual gaming is fine. Like I said I have 2 of them and have been very happy with them. I also have its big brother the 7770 1 Ghz edition, a HD6770 Silent and a NVIDIA GT9800 1Gb Silent and a GTS 450 all by Gigabyte for their 3 year warranty.

Don't forget to uninstall your existing card via Device Manager before fitting your new card, give us a shout if you need any help at all.
Thanks for the tip on uninstalling. I would not have done that.

I ordered the card today. Let me go through the installation with you. == I uninstall existing card from the Device Manager, install new card Drivers from CD (assuming there is one). Power down, replace card with new one and boot. Would that be the correct order of things?

Make sure there is no software from the old card in Control Panel / Add Remove Programs

Get the drivers from amd.com

The drivers on the cd, which of course will come with the card, are outdated. ( Most likely )

Download the drivers, install the card, then install the drivers.

My concern is that if I install the card with no drivers that when I boot, the card will not work and nothing will be on the screen which makes it very hard to install drivers.

Windows should Install the Driver for you .. If not it will Install a Standard Driver which will let you Install the proper Driver once Windows has loaded ..
