well, im looking to spend about 150 dollars on a graphics card due to my old ATI one burning out, took it apart and its literally black inside... i didnt think burn out actuallly meant burned lol. But anywho im looking for a website that gives decent graphic cards, im not looking to buy another POS that stops working 2 weeks in. Anyone use a website? or have your own recommendation?

using a MEdia Center PC M7590n, i play MMO's and PVP games alot, and the pc is being used non stop by my house so id like a nice one :whistling:

price range, around 150 dollars, can go up or down (not up to much >< under 180 for sure)

For your price range the 1950pro and XT cards are very nice. Something like this: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814102075.

This should be a good card for you. These are high-end cards, so they can be known to run quite hot. You shouldn't be getting any burnout problems without noticing graphics stability issues first, though, so that's weird...

What is the cooling like in your system? How many fans/what size etc... What are the average temps in the room your computer is in...

Have you considered my questions yet? Telling us the exact same post 3 times isn't being very helpful...
