just warning you now that I am a COMPLETE noob to this stuff. I really need a video card because im looking forward to CoD Black Ops but I can barely run CoD4 on minium-lowest settings possible. My "GPU" gets to about 140 degrees after 1 game (according to everest) so ive been opening the side panel and pointing my big floor fan at it to cool it down. It works but i know it cant be good for my computer. My price range is no more than $170 preferably lower. I just want to be able to comfortably run present and future games at good settings. Thanks, Oligator.
