Its finally died on me, the fucking thing. I'm ordering one off Scan, which shall I get?

Also motherboard USB's died as well, so sorting that out as well.

I'm close to flinging this into the ocean and buying an Alienware pc I'm pissed off :x :x :x

I can't get any driver software to run for the USB's, so no mouse. Having to use a laptop.

Will keep trying, but at this rate, I'll format and see if that helps, and if not, I'll buy a new pc

Tell me about it. Anyway, did a restore, got the usb back, but driver still fucked.

Buying a new card, but I have been getting blue screens online, and its AMD. Spoke to my mate, and he get Blue screens in Youtube, and his is AMD.

So, will go for Nvidia. Have to order today/tomorrow, for Saturday delivery. No gaming Fri.

Out of the following, which are good:

The 580 is an extra £100, so have to weigh that up.


If I was to get the 580, which one should I get (of the two links)?

The ASUS cooler however takes up three slots, whereas the MSI card only takes up two slots.

I think mine currently takes two slots, so MSI looks to be good.

When I typed this into Google:

radeon hd 6950 nvidia equivalent

It comes back on many links with the 560. I think I may go for that one, as its a bit cheaper, and compares.
