New Video Card Suggestions?

  1. hey, im looking for some suggestions on a good, cheap video card that i can rely on. I once thought Asus was reliable, and maybe they are and im just unlucky, but my Asus Geforce 6800GT has had to be RMA'd 2 times now because of shortages or deaths. I would like to get another Asus, as long as it will be reliable but thats why im asking you guys. I was looking at http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121007 because that seems to be right up my alley being affordable, but I saw some comments on there that made me not want to get it anymore. Please note that my current 6800GT barely fits in my case slot right now, and the heatsink on the card I linked is apparently very big so im not sure it would even fit. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, im tired of RMA'ing this card and having to wait X amount of days without a computer because I have no backup card.

    Also I saw this one, thought it may be good tell me what u think http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3128203&CatId=28

    I use only EVGA Nvidia based graphics processors. I look for ddr3/256 bits/256mb or more. Many EVGA cards are lifetime warranty.

    This is much more powerful than all the other choices and is within your budget too I think. It should also fit into your case easily.

    Rage_3K_Moiz has pointed out a very good deal. I recommend a GeForce 7900 GS as well.
