    Decent Graphics Card

    Im looking for a decent graphics card for around the £80-90 price mark, doesnt really matter if its dx10 or dx11 (11 would be better i guess) Just aint really been into the whole pc gaming for a while since getting a xbox 360 but now I wanna upgrade my 8500GT lol..

    Gotta be PCI-E and size doesnt matter i have a big case, would be nice to have a hdmi port, I have a decent PSU so power isnt a problem

    Thanks

    What do you want it to play? Either get a 4870, or pay a little more and get a 4890 or a 5770. There the best imo.

    He said £80-90, not £110-120.

    At £80-90 the 4850 is undoubtedly the faster card. The 5750 is £20 more (the 1GB version, I'd avoid the occasional 512mb 5750) and no faster and the 5670 and GTS 250 are slower.

    Spending a little extra on a 5750 would get you eyefinity support, which means it supports three monitors at once rather than two. The GTS 250 would give you PhysX support, but that'd slow it down further. The 5670 is just overpriced.

    Thanks dood will look into it..

    XFX Radeon 4850 512mb seems a good deal atm tbh

    wat is PhysX anyways?

    Basically more detailed collision detection, cloth simulation and other movements using some of the graphics card's processing power. It can apparently be quite good but it's not supported in that many games.
