I thought I would revive this thread. Money for me and my wife isn't as tight as it was, so I'm once again thinking about getting my laptop working again, or just getting a new one alltogether. Thing is, right now I am not going out alot where I need a laptop super often, so I am wondering if it makes financial sense to get a new Laptop, when my old one is still good, aside from the crippling video card problems of course.
Problem with that though is there does not seem to be any reasonably priced way to fix my current laptop. The 7800 Go's are ridiculously expensive, so unless I get lucky and maybe find someone on here willing to sell, I'm not sure what to do.
To see if I understand the previous posts about the various cards I could use, the 7900 series would be just as good, probably cheaper, and easy to install? Do I have that right?
I have a WXVGA with the 1920 resolution, which I love, and would obviously want a card capable of outputting that res.
Thanks and happy Holidays. =)
