Have a Q8200 as well as my main rig which is a Q6600 but that has a HD4870 which is overkill.

Want to get a cheap graphics card to run my Q8200 at my parents with a 1024x768 res(do have a 1600x1200 crt one though I think) and plan to do little apart from emulation on ot of PS1 and below mainly.

The main worry is World OF Warcraft as I have a 8400 in my laptop that runs fine if the setttings are low and I want mid range settings apart from shadows which can be low.

I was happy with a 8600GT and even happier with a 8800GT before but dont want to really spend above £45

i have played wow in a 4550 fanless, cost 45-50, ran just fine (2.7 core duo)

main reason i got the 4550 was a very low power reqs, but it does get decent reviews when its compared, and beat a 9400gt

Well its going in a ATX case with a OCZ 500W psu so power consumption isnt a problem.

still might be the best card in the 45 quid range
