New graphic card

My existing graphic card is a Radeon x300. Recently it seems to be getting quite hot and causing the pc to shut down. Is there a reasonably priced alternative available. I have an Intel D915PBL mobo with a Pentium 4 3.2ghz cpu. Power supply is CIT Gold 450w. Any advice appreciated

You could try a better VGA cooler, but it could be difficult to get one that's compatible with your card.

It has a PCI-E x16 slot according to the specs (click here), so here are some options if you go for a new graphics card:

ATI: click here

Nvidia: click here

Please be aware that some have large coolers that'll occupy at least one adjacent expansion slot.

Shop around as you may find them cheaper elsewhere, & also look on eBay where you could pick up a bargain. G
