I did quite a bit of research on my own and came to the same conclusion after awhile and spent a few hours trying to find replacements.


Also, I have heard that nVidia did stumble with the GTX400 series from many places around the net while I was researching.... I'll consider the GTX500 series, but it all really depends if I decided to spend the extra hundred or so bucks on them.
