With [email protected] you can have pretty much whatever you want so it's just a case of picking whatever card is best value. At £80 It's probably the 4850 but if you can stretch to £100 then you've got the choice of the DirectX 11 5750 or the faster Radeon 4870.

4870 for definate u can pick up one for pretty cheap

Have to agree.. 4870...

No point going for 5xxx series, at that price it'll be slower than the 4870 and only add DX11.. Which is kinda pointless on a system like that.

i swear u can get 4870 for £80 somewhere (or at least, sometime ago)

I'd go for the 5750 myself. It is slower, but it may end up faster in the future when you actually need the speed. I'm not sure why you'd consider DX11 pointless on a system with a strong processor like that.

How would it "end up faster in the future"? The card isn't going to get any better...
