    Ok, I am now in a rush to get a new card because mine just died last night. I'm just going to quickly get this one that you suggested. Thanks for all of your opinions!

    Ok, the HD 6670 arrived today, I wasn't super impressed but I'm just glad that most of my games run at a higher quality with no lag. The only problem I have now is my CPU speed is not fast enough to run NFS The Run with no lag. I guess I'll just keep saving up. Thanks for all of your opinions!

    Haha, yeah. I was kind of worried about that after I bought the card.

    It should run in circles around your 8400GS...maybe your CPU needs some upgrading on its own.

    I know. I already spent more than I wanted to on this new card, it's gonna be a while before I get a new CPU.

    Yeah, my friends keep telling me that it would be a good idea to upgrade from a low profile.
