This is such a bad deal it's almost funny.

for that price you might as well buy an ati 4850 or a 9600gt

Ok Ok. I get the point.

I was actually looking for a cheap upgrade to my ATI X600 that is PCI E 1 profile but unsure what to get when I thought Play were doing a good deal. Sorry to have got it wrong but may be you guys could point me in the right direction

Thanks

He is absolutely right.Don't go for this card.Get Ati 4850 for around 115 pounds and you'll get much more powerful GPU . Also forget about 9600gt.

PCI E 2.0 cards will work perfectly fine in a PCI 1.0 slot, there is still more than enough bandwidth for it not to be an issue

Not always true m8. I got a 8800gt 512 from Ebuyer a few months before Xmas. It didnt work in my kids machine (P4 3.2) so i eventually had to stick it in my dads new rig (DualCore 2.2) and it worked perfectly. The kids machine only has PCIE 1.0 and it had none of it. Maybe what your saying is right a high percentage of the time i dunno but you can never be sure coz theres always the ones that dont ;-)

Why not this XFX 9800GT for less than £110

It's just a repackaged 8800GT and it supports the next generation of gaming - 3D

As your budget's ~£100, I'd go for one of these (choose free delivery for the prices):

Novatech GeForce 9800GT SLI 512MB GDDR3 = £92
Novatech GeForce 9800GT Synergy SLI 512MB GDDR3 = £94
HIS ATI Radeon HD4830 512MB GDDR3 = £91

What motherboard & PSU (make+model of both) are you using? This may determine what you can go for. And also state why you want to upgrade the graphics. The reason might be obvious, but I'd still like to know.
#15
Thank you for everyones help, I have this mother board,

http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Products/Motherboard/Products_Overview.aspx?ProductID=1800

Not sure I would be able to use some of the cards listed to their full potential. Any further direction??
#16
Yes, your motherboard will be fine for any one of the cards suggested so far. The key in the specs is "1 x PCIe x16 slot".

Now about your PSU - what make & model is this?

The things that might hinder (or 'bottleneck') a good graphics card the most are your CPU & RAM. An Intel C2D or equivalent & at least 2GB RAM should do fine when paired-up with a 9800/4830 series card though.
#17
Crossbow your a life saver, I have a P4 3.2Ghz processor (socket 775) with 4 x 512mb 3200 (400Mhz) DDR RAM. I am on the look out for a prescot Extreme and reasonably price 1GB sticks but with what I have spec wise for now I want to be able to run the latest C & C 3 for instance on reasonably high settings if not maxed out!! Thank you for taking the time to help.
#18
I also need to consider my power unit?? (sorry for the lack of correct name) i currently have a 315 Watt unit. Does this force you to point me to something a little less power hungry?

How about this?

http://www.play.com/PC/PCs/4-/6854974/PNY-GeForce-9400-GT-512MB-DDR2-HDTV-OUT-DVI-PCI-E-Graphics-Card/Product.html

Seems to tick all the boxes less the slight power difference but might be able to lay my hands on a 400 Watt PSU.
#19
Was looking into the requirements for C&C: RA3 & your CPU should be good enough for it.

It would be ideal if you could get your hands on one of those £50 cards that were going on PCWorld recently - 8800GS 384Mb / 8800GT 256Mb (cannot find the link). Or, try to get something like a secondhand 7900GTX off eBay for ~£40. These will be much better than the 9400GT you linked to.

You'll need a better PSU (power supply) too of course. I've got a really good one for sale if you're interested for £40 + postage. Will open a fresh FS thread if you are.
#20
Thanks for update, i have struggled to find one of your recommendations which i shouldnt be upprised at if they arethat good. what about this for the money?

Crossbow, sorry just realised I dont have space in my case fordouble depth cards as there are only 3 slots available. The other 2 are my wireless card and tv tuner. My system is a packard bell iextreme mc 2104. you can see it on the pb web site here:

http://support.packardbell.com/uk/item/index.php?pn=PB14207401&g=1400

. thanks again for taking the trouble to put me on the right path.
#22
No, a 8500GT will be dire for games. Other suggestions would be a HD 4670 (review here) or 9600 GSO (review here), which are relatively good single-slot cards for around £60-70 & widely available. They aren't power-hungry cards, but I think you'd still need a better PSU.

Yes, I know what you mean about the lack of space for dual-slot/width cards as it's a mATX motherboard - here's its layout. Some of the cards I mentioned are single-slot ones. You could make it a little less cramped inside by removing the wireless card & replacing it with a USB wireless adapter dongle. Or, even replacing it with a PCI-E one (the small black slot at far left is PCI-E 1x) - e.g. like an Abit AirPace Wi-Fi (Scan purchase link).

Glad to help btw - that's what a forum is for :)
