This is the videocard that's in my Baby, Crysis @ 1680+1050 High Setting 2XAA 50+ FPS. On the snow mission coming out the mount 35+ FPS blow up the shacks down the hill at the same time 5+ FPS this card to me is the best bang for the buck Vs ATI HD 4850 that $399.99 on NCIX.ca
Visiontek Radeon HD 4870 512MB GDDR5 PCI-E DVI-I HDMI VGA Video Card SKU: 30825. Nvidia got the New GTX 275 coming out soon so this card's price may drop.

If You feel I Helped Please Rep!! Thanks

Well i did my research, and acording to many reviews Corsair is supposed to be a good company that makes reliable PSUs, right ? However my Corsair 620 W psu died on me in a little under a year of use, and i was shocked, cause by all accounts it is supposed to be a good, durable and sturdy psu. None of my components are overclocked, everything is on default settings, so i have no idea what went wrong.

My friend has a Corsair 520 W psu that he swears by, and has more powerfull components then me, and his quadcore CPU is heavily OCd (i have core2duo ), yet he has no problems with his psu.
I had to return my psu to the store where i bought it ( that was 2 weeks ago ), still haven't recieved an answear from the store as to whether they are going to give me a new PSU.

I guess the moral of the story here is that even the supposedly good brandname PSUs can be just as unreliable.

Could be that you get dirty power (meaning low or fluctuating voltages) or maybe a surge, do you have serge protection on your computer?

No i dont think i have a surge protector, my computer is plugged into a power strip - heres a definition for what im referring to as found on wikipedia :

"A power strip (also known as a plug board, power board, power bar, distribution board, gangplug, plugbar, multibox, extension lead or relocatable power tap) is a strip of sockets that attaches to the end of a flexible cable and allows multiple devices to be plugged in. As such it can be considered a type of trailing socket though that term is more often used for single and double cable mounted sockets. The term is also used to refer to the complete assembly with the power strip on one end and a plug on the other. Power strips are often used when many electrical devices are in proximity, especially with audio/video and computer systems."

Power strip - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Yeah that's not a surge protector, if you have spent allot of money on your computer and you want to protect it then you need a surge protector, i have bought one a about a month ago and still haven't used it yet for some stupid reason
