    If you're looking to have similar performance in games, but something that runs a lot cooler and uses less power, the GTX 660 would be your best bet at finding around $180-200.Not sure about the AMD ...

  • neatfeatguy posted a message in the forum topic In general, how soon after a game is released do you start PLAYING it?. on the PC & Mac Discussion board

    I'm a cheap gamer. I can't afford to drop $50-60 on a new release. I generally wait for games to drop in price to $15 or less which means I don't purchase the game until 6-12 months after the release...

    If you installed this cooler yourself, did you install it correctly? I'd venture to guess it's a VRAM issue - overheating or it's just faulty and causing the GPU to crash.I had a GTX 285 that would co...
