The graphics card on my main computer died today - at least that is what I think has happened. Everything seems to be working properly but my monitor isn't able to receive a signal. The card had a failure before, but it came back to life after a reboot. No such luck this time.
I now have a little dilemma. Do I spend $600 or so on a shiny new graphics card, or do I spend $2,000 on a completely new computer? This does present an upgrade opportunity, and I could then strip down my existing machine and use it as a test bed.
Either option may finally give me a chance to play Doom III (which is a good thing), but I can ill afford the expense at the moment. It's always about money, isn't it?
