    Well i have a Innoviosion 7300Gt which i din't think was too bad. But i got test drive unlimited today, and although it runs its not good!

    Can someone reccomend me a good graphics card for the £60-£100 region. This is all my budget will stretch to and i don't want to buy the wrong card again.

    Many Thanks.

    Maybe you can go for a 7900GS or a X1950 Pro (not Sapphire);)
    I think they are 100/110.

    For a tiny bit more you could have my 5 month old 7900GTO, it runs far in excess of stock 7900GTX speeds and is much faster than a 7900GS or 1950Pro.

    You cant really get them now they were a limited edition, few around and a GTX would cost £250 plus, this is serious performance! Ohhh and its a silent heatpipe also.....good sell!

    I have a warranty replacement for my old 1800XT on its way....a 1950XT superclocked to XTX speeds. :D

    Oh yeah and if you go for a Nvidia card, don't go for XFX. They have a crappy rma policy.:)

    Yeah A GT is better than a GS.. With Nvidia.

    A GT with ATI is usually a budget model..

    Yes, get the 7900GT. Unless you like ATI's crisp/sharp image (not as pretty, but definitely higher definition), in which case you should get an X1900/X1950 card.

    My old X850XT- 6000 3Dmark05 stock clocks
    My new 7900GS- 7200 3Dmark05 stock clocks
    A normal 7900GT- 8000 3Dmark05 stock clocks
    An average X1950Pro (which I should have gotten :()- 9800 3Dmark05 stock clocks.

    Only 9100? Wtf? X1950PRO would be good though. Or GT maybe since they are almost the same.

    The X1900GT is basically on par with the X1950Pro.

    Not quite, although almost accurate, the x1950pro was introduced to succeed the x1900gt.
