I currently have wasted my old HD 3850 which served me for almost 5 years. Was playing some TF2 and all of the sudden vertical stripes appeared and I can't go past the start-up windows loading, only Safe Mode can be accessed. After some internet research and tests I determinded that it is my video card and now i'm planing to swap it.
The budget is in the range of $100 (+ $10-$20). All I can find was an HD 7750 and I wonder if it is any good. I mean the build quality, and maybe some of you guys had one of those and can share the experience.
Also advices on some other options I should consider, are very welcome.
