    Graphics card advice

    Looking for a decent graphics card to play, modern warfare 2, starcraft 2, frontlines maybe a few more.
    Been out of the loop for a while and looking for some advice on what to get.
    Got around £120 to spend

    thanks

    buy 2nd hand is my advise serious gamers always upgrade so you get a perfectly good card at a fraction of what they paid for them

    22" i believe, Dont have the resolution too high though, maybe 720

    For that money, I would go for something like the ATI 5770, as they are good cards and relatively efficient.

    videocardshop is always good, or fleabay or for sale/trade section

    avforums guys

    they have dedicated computer section and theres loads of cards on sale for decent prices

    I bought a gfx card from eBay once and it was faulty, had an absolute nightmare getting any money back! I'll try the other places though, thanks

    AVforums is good to buy stuff from.

    Also if your using a 22" screen with 720 resolution you are pushing your budget of £120. A GTS250 is more than capable of running these games at such a resolution and these can be picked up for £60 used. Otherwise go for a GTX260 which is what i use

    I posted a deal for a 285gtx today for 150 quid, if your budget can stretch a bit..
