    Looking for GFX's card around £100

    I'm looking for a graphics card to replace my X1950Pro Pci-E . Could anyone recommend me one that's priced around £100 . I did see that the 9800gt is £120 something according to Ebuyers flyer but i'm not sure how good it is.

    but i did pay about £160 for it when it first came out

    Do you think it would probably be better to spend the extra £30 and get a 9800GT or just go for the 9600?
