My video card overheated from dust in the fan/heatsink and forced me to upgrade a few months ago.  The new one is better.  I just checked the review on that site you used.  My new one has a score of 560.  lol

It works fine with simraceway though and cost an astonishing $38 dollars.  lol

Indeed. like I said I was plenty happy with what I had and like you say SRW runs fine.  But then it only runs dx9. When I put it on ultra settings there wasn't a massive improvement in detail, just fps. 

My old one was pretty good I thought, (nvidia gt610 2gb), till I saw the 3dmark scores lol.Mine cost around the same as yours too.

The replacement is over 10x faster when running benchmark. Before:2fps, after:30 fps...........

The best thing is it was free! I have some IT mad pals and one of them just got a 32gb £1000 card! OMG!

Oh and I'm getting about 170+ fps on ultra now. :)

Yes maybe I'll let the dust build up so I can upgrade my new outdated card,  Christmas and birthday is right around the corner,  :)
