Scan are offering the newly released 256mb version of the 8800gt for just £117.
Seems to be a bargain on the face of it even given that you lose 256mb ram & the clock speed is slightly reduced.
I wont be using the card for resolutions over 1280x1084 so not sure I would get much benifit from the extra ram and usually try to change my card yearly getting the best bang for my buck as I can (currently using a 7900gs).
Would this seem a good buy or should I look elsewhere.
My max budget would be around £130 as although I like gaming it wont cook my tea... :-)
PCA magazine - 150 - is the Asus 512Mb nVidia GeForce 8800GT PCI-Express VGA Card. It was given a gold award. I found it click here at £176.19 - more than you want to pay but extremely good value for its performance. TC.
IMO if you are wantign to use DX10 you will need the higher RAM. If you will be using XP for the forseeable future then it will suit you fine. DX10 will need alot of RAM. Its very good value for money and a top brand of card.
