Today's $50 4850 option will play games just fine on an E6600
Today's $350 option will be competetive with $200 cards by the time you replace your E6600 that's holding it back.

Sorry to hear about your good ol' buddy Rog, its always hard to let a good friend go
Welch wrote:A note about that, make sure to do your research on the electrolytic caps first, not only do they need to be low ESR, but generally the circuitry that is using solid caps requires much higher resistance electrolytic caps, its not a 1:1. For instance an 820uF solid cap might require a 1500uF electrolytic.
Welch wrote:I'd imagine the ones you may have seen blown were the solid caps that have the slits in the top to allow for that sort of failure. I've noticed with more older caps that appear to be solid caps that they have those slits... Perhaps its possible that they were electrolytic caps in solid style aluminum cylinders?
