Hey guys. So the vid card is going out in my PC (the fan stopped working and it overheats every time I play a game) so I am guessing its time for a new one. The problem is I have no idea where to go or what to get so I though I would ask for some help here.

The one that is going out is an AMD Radeon HD 5700 series. I tried googleing one but it looks like they dont make that one anymore so I am at a lost. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I have GeForce GTX 750....which is awesome. (...and big. >_> )

I love Erica (Strike Witches), Eureka (Eureka Seven), and Tenma (School Rumble), stay away from them. xD
Update: Also love Yukari and Mizore from Rosario + Vampire.
Another Update: Also Yuuki...from School Rumble...
Yet Another Update: Also Amber and Xiao Pai from Rune Factory 4.

Make sure you get a card that fits the available space, doesn't use too much power and uses the same kind / number of power connectors. High range video cards often take up lots of physical space (more than a standard PCI-e card) and use lots of power (and more connectors). The good news is that a low to medium range video card is not too expensive and you can usually save even more money by opting for last year's models.
