    Decent Graphics card to fit PCI Express

    Don't want to spend loads, just good bang for my buck. What does everyone recommend?

    Computer is as follows:

    P4 2.8 (HT) (upgradable to a Dual core at a later date if I wish, or up to 3.8ghz)
    2gb RAM DDR2 533mhz

    I have a Nvidia 6800 you can have for £15

    Depends what you have to spend. I tend to look at around £100 as my benchmark for a graphics card. For that you can get (£106) a 9800GT from Dabs - nice card.

    Good card but prob a bit much, as its in the top range, mine 6800 is a top of the range card from a couple of generations ago and is as good as a med range new card now.
    Also would prefer ATI to Nvidia for new cards lol

    I had a p4 3.2 ghz ht awhile ago had a x600 256 card in ti origanally

    Upgraded it to an 7800 gtx

    Upgraded to an 8800 gtx

    I got the same frames per second (in battlefield2)with the 7800 gtx card as the 8800 gtx this was due to a bottleneck in my computer probally the cpu.

    My local cex had a 7800 gtx card for 35.00

    this link is a good resource to choose a graphics cards and any around the 7800 gtx or just below is which i'd recommend.

    thats cool, If you look at the chart that antony4462 posted the 6800 is just behind the 7800 he mentioned, It is a very good reliable card with DVI and VGA connections. Might even swap for a 360 game to if you have any
    I am like antony4462 I upgrade all the time, so my cards are top of the range until the next one comes out.
    If you dont want it thou, you really would be better getting a good older card then a midrange or low range new card, and you can see in the chart posted

    hope it helps and let me know either way
