    OK, I have £70. I need a cheap video card, that'll run all current games at decent settings, and Doom 3 on Ultra reasonably well (50+ FPS, I hope). Here's what I got so far, anty recommendations from the same site?

    MSI GeForce 8400GS 256MB GDDR2 PCIE DVI TVO 450/800 (http://www.dabs.com/productview.asp...1137&PageMode=1&NavigationKey=11137,366360000)

    Sapphire Technology ATI Radeon HD2400 XT 256MB GDDR3 PCIE DVI/TVO/VGA (http://www.dabs.com/productview.asp...1137&PageMode=1&NavigationKey=11137,366360000)

    Sapphire Technology Radeon X1650Pro 512MB DDR2 PCIE Dual DVI (http://www.dabs.com/productview.asp...1137&PageMode=1&NavigationKey=11137,366360000)

    XFX GeForce 8500GT 512MB DDR2 PCIE DVI VGA TV (http://www.dabs.com/productview.asp...1137&PageMode=1&NavigationKey=11137,366360000

    Sapphire Technology ATI Radeon HD2600XT 256MB GDDR3 PCIE Dual DVI TVO (http://www.dabs.com/productview.asp...1137&PageMode=1&NavigationKey=11137,366360000)

    The 2600 is within price range, but frankly, for another £10, I'd go with the 8600, it'll likely handle Doom3 better, since nVidia usually does better in OpenGL games.
