    Hello all,

    Just adding a graphics card to the basket but I've seen a fair few I would'nt mind adding and I can't make up my mind. I've got a budget of up to £120 and I wont be overclocking it.

    I've heard that these cards are pretty good;

    ATi 4850 (But heat troubles?)
    Nvidia 9800GT
    Nvidia 8800

    If there's only going to be a few FPS diffrence but a huge price diffrence between two cards, i'm going to go for the cheaper one.

    Thanks,

    Wasley

    I'm pretty sure you wont find a better card for that price, mate. I'd get it if I were you, and knowing ebuyer's free delivery, it should arrive by Tuesday :)

    I highly doubt that i'll be ordering tonight. Perhaps later in the week. I'm waiting for the E7200's to drop in price (There meant to drop around about now).
