Hi everyone; I'm putting together a gaming rig for my mum; we've pretty much planned the whole rig but would like some advice on the graphics card. She wants a decent gaming PC, budget of £1,000 (GBP), we're in the UK and we're going down the i7 route. We're looking at this: http://img.techpowerup.org/100814/amumspc.jpg (linking because I'm on 56k; checking the thread would be a bugger) There is ~£135 left in the budget for a graphics card, and I'm going to try and get her to stretch and extra ~£100 to get a 5850. She's likely to put in the extra £100. Could we have some advice on whether we should stick with this plan; if so which 5850; or if there is an appropriate nVidia card to consider, value-for-money-wise? With the extra £100, then £235 will be the absolute upper limit. We have no preference on whether we choose ATi or NVIDIA. She doesn't want to upgrade anytime soon. It's just a gaming rig with 1 monitor and a 42" TV, no CUDA or Eyefinity needed. We don't really want to settle for a 5770 as she'll be most likely gaming on her 42" tv at 1920x1080. So... £235 tops, heavy gaming, red or green? One other thing: we don't mind getting a slightly lower performing card, in favour of a longer warranty, so please consider warranty too. Thanks everyone.
