    Best grpahics card (pci express) for under £50

    I am after a new gc so I can boost my computer rating (graphics are at 5.3 with in-built) and cos I need to be able to dual screen my pc. I have £50 or maybe upto £70 for the right one

    I looked at this one - ebuyer.com/pro…491
    and thi ebuyer.com/pro…954

    Any more I should consider?

    Cheers

    This might be a better card for the money - faster than the 2 you have mentioned

    If you are looking at running games and want DirectX 11 then have a look at
    ebuyer.com/pro…138

    More info on what your pc spec is, what you will be running etc will help.

    Core I3 with W7 & 3GB ram, running photoshop and fireworks (and a little flash editing) :thumbsup:

    Are you on Win 7 64-bit? (Otherwise you'll potentially waste RAM).

    I'd consider an ATI 4670, or a 5560/5570 closer to your £70 top end.

    32 Bit, it was a pre-built machine.

    I know I am nearly at the limit for Ram so only thing I can really update is the graphics which is quite simple and cheap (ish).

    I may consider ramping w7 upto 64 bit soon, but need to work out what ram my mobi will take.

    specs:

    I know :thumbsup: I use photoshop and fireworks a lot so needs to be slightly better than a £20 card, think I am going to go with an ATI 4670 (as recommended by Mbeeching)
