A Sad Tale of a Dying Video Card and Some Random Songs

Been having video card issues, my card is dying and I have no money to replace it.  I am looking at eventually getting a SLI-based motherboard / card(s) but for now this is what I want.  (See glorious image!)

Its the best upgrade (I believe) that my old AGP motherboard will accept.  I cant even watch YouTube or Netflix without it looking horribly glitchy and crashing my system after a few minutes.  If anyone can help out, that would be amazing, because right now I can hardly update this blog without it dying on me.

For now, a few random songs I think are pretty awesome (I had to enable FlashBlock to grab the embed codes!):

Juno Reactor - Pistolero:
"Juno Reactor is an electronic psytrance group, often known for its world fusion influences", they were formed in 1990.



Samael - The Cross:
"Samael are a long-running Swiss black metal band formed in 1987 in Sion, Switzerland."



Strapping Young Lad - Centipede:
"Strapping Young Lad was an influential Industrial / Death / Thrash metal band from Vancouver, Canada, started by Devin Townsend in 1994."

I wish it was just an excuse, honestly. I have had this computer for 8 years and it was excellent until about 2 years ago. I dont have a replacement card because the card that I do have (and might sell) is a PCIe and of course, it wont work.

I know the HD 4670 is a large leap, but for 125 as opposed to about 800 to get the new motherboard is a pretty good compromise for now.

damned old tech...

Thank you for another essential article. Where else could anyone get that kind of information in such a complete way of writing? I have a presentation incoming week, and I am on the lookout for such information.
