    card killer

    That's what I was thinking, I had been worried about power but when it worked for a while I let it go... SIGH... Now I have to replace both, was already planning to upgrade card to a R9 290 just not this soon.. Would a 650 be enough or should I go 750-850?? Most likely go with a EVGA or Corsair.
