Do you guys have any suggestions on where to get the best possible graphics card for under £50.

Thanks.

Spend the extra few quid and get this:

If you drop any lower you are not getting any value for your cash, this is an amazing price for a great card.

yeah I'd fork out the extra and go for that too, excellent performance for the price. small quidco cashback (1.5% last time I checked) also available on ebuyer.

Now 0.01% as they are (slowly) withdrawing from all cashback schemes.

If you're happy to go over budget a little then the Radeon X1650's are much better than the NVIDIA 7600's for around the same price. I have one of these: ]http//ww…281 and can't praise it enough for the money. Otherwise the X1550's are dead on budget and aren't that much worse, just don't expect to be able to run Crysis with everything turned on.

Just remember at the moment you get a lot more for your money in the

The X1650 pro is better than a 7600GS but a little lower than the 7600GT, I used to recommend the X1650pro to anyone on a budget, but that was before the 7600GT's dramatically dropped in price.

Now you can get a 7600GT for the same price as a X1650pro and it beats it every time. So it's a no brainer really, 7600GT all the way. And it runs on a lot less power so is ideal for those who buy ready built PC's with a weak PSU.

Yup you're right 7600GT Vs X1650Pro is a no brainer, at that price I just assumed it was a 7600GS, that'll teach me to pay more attention :giggle: . The X1650Pro is comparable to the 7600GS and easily worth an extra £10 or so, but can't stand up to the 7600GT, however the X1650XT annihilates the 7600GT but that would seriously stretch the £50 budget.

Although looking at Ebuyer it has to be noted 7600GT's from the top vendors (Asus, Gainward etc.) are still > £80 and hence still in direct competition with the X1650XT's. "top vendors" is a subjective thing however, but I personally would not risk anything else.

Also if Richer Sounds were to close down for some reason then your warranty would be gone with it, even in the first year as they dont buy direct from Panasonic so you get no warranty from Panasonic at all.
