    I would like to get peoples input on what video card I should upgrade to.

    I have a AMD XP1800 system with a Ti200 AGP 8x card now but I think its crapping out. When I play a game I keep getting an error and one of the possibilities is that something has over heated. I'm assuming its the video card since it only happens when I'm gaming.

    Your opinions would be appreciated.

    Latley while I am playing "comand and conquer" the game will crash and a warning pops up saying that my computer has experanced a major problem and it lists some reasons for the crash, one of the reasons is that some hardware has overheated. I don't remember what some of the other reasons are and the crash could happen at any time while playing. The other thing that I noticed is that the video is a lot choppier than it ever has before.

    My card is as ASUS Ti200 32 mb. I was playing C & C Generals: Zero Hour.

    I played through Generals and Zero Hour once already with no problems. I started playing the challenges & skirmishes after a hiatus from the game for over a year and I played at least 20 games before this started happening.

    You need minimum 64Mb for video. 32Mb is too low.

    Also I was thinking, in the solo missions is the video slow on that too?
