Video card dead? -- 4850 vs. 9800 GTX
My computer boots and loads Windows, but after that, it is a blank screen. I've also seen a quick blue screen flash, but instead of forcing me to restart the computer, the shit does it itself immediately. Then, there seems to be a disk load error, as it seems that the computer can't either find or read the HDD. The IDE isn't being read. Is this a HDD error or a video card that's shot? Or both?
I also am looking to upgrade the GPU anyhow, so should I go with a 4850 or 9800 GTX? Budget is ~$200.
