Windows 7: Do I Need New Card

Do I Need New Card

I have a GTX 460 that has served me well I am getting periodic crashes some of which are preceded by a warning that the video card has stopped working and been reset. I am thinking that this is a problem with the card, which is four (?) years old. Should I upgrade? I don't do a lot of gaming, but I am a heavy user of Photoshop and other Adobe products. I am on a limited budget.

If you updated your drivers that could be the issue ,I would go back to the previous driver and see if it helps

download msi afterburner as well as msi kombuster. do some stress testing and see what happens.

if it crashes alot after reverting the driver, you can kind of point the finger.

the gtx 750 costs about 120 and is some serious grunt for the money.

I've been through the driver problem and am using the older 314 driver.
