Guess it's time for new vid card.....

I leave pc on pretty much everyday. So around 3-4 in the morning, we heard a loud pop. We start checking around and nothing. Woke up this morning to put some music in my ipod before I left to work, and the monitor didn't want to turn on. I was like, WTF. Come home to check it out and start looking around. Nothing out of the ordinary. So I pull out the vid card and noticed this.....

If you have some soldering skills, you can replace those capacitors pretty cheap and it will probably work. I've done it with a handful of video cards with good success. IF you do choose to fix it, besure to replace all of the caps even ones that look good.

I thought about that, but I've been wanting a card that did HD. Well, now is my chance to go get one. Any ideas of HD cards that are around the 100-120 range that will do HD. I don't do any games on the pc. Want to stick w/Nvidia. Don't ask me why, all the pc's I have owned were nvidia.
