Windows 7: Video Card Replacement

Video Card Replacement

I'm thinking about ordering this card:

EVGA GeForce 9500 GT Video Card - 1GB DDR2, PCI Express 2.0, SLI Support, (Dual Link) Dual DVI, HDTV, VGA Support at

To replace the current video card, because the Vcore1 voltage is only 1.14v, instead of 1.39 as it should be, but I'm wondering how that card would stack up? I know that there are much better cards available, but I don't want to spend all that much. Nor am I interested in an ATI card.

One thing that caught my eye, is that it says that it is compatible with HDTV...what does this mean, that it has HDCP? The only thing that I can think of that would make me spend more is that I intend to buy an HDTV, and the one that I'm considering doesn't have a DVI connector, only HDMI and VGA. HDMI would be fine, except that on my Acer monitor, using a composite cable (DVI to HDMI) didn't work, so I'm unsure about the HDTV also.

If your not much into video editing or serious gaming your choice will be a fine one. I have a friend using the exact same one and he loves it. He does some picture editing and movie burning. He's using it on Windows 7 x64. And he loved the price on it as well!

P.S. He has used it on a couple of the newer games as well and says he doesn't notice anything wrong with it. It's holding fine!

My interest in games has waned some, and I'm not into video editing...yet, so this may be right for me. If not, I guess I wouldn't have lost too much.
