    Hi Farmer,

    When it comes to graphics i always go with ATI. Have a look on ebay to see if you can grab a bargain or try savatore
    Let us know what you decide on or if you need any help installing it.

    I agree, i always go with ati, i have recently bought an ati radeon x700 for £70.... not the best graphics in the world, but it plays battlefield 2, f.e.a.r etc etc.... bearing in mind this is a pci-express card, im prosuming you have slots for the pci express as well??

    even an ati radeon x600 pro would work wonders for you...... bye it online at pc world for £69.99 :biggrin

    good luck

    Well if you are really looking to save money and if you are playing older as in DirectX 8 games then may I suggest you take a look at a GeForce Ti4600...

    Was once the daddy of cards, but probably can be found very cheap on ebay....

    Check out the reviews on google...

    LOL
