PCI-Express Graphics Card Advise

  Weeby-Vuit 11:48 20 Nov 2007

I'm looking at spending around £150 on a PCI-Express Graphics Card, the card need to be able to handle two screens well and high performance Games.

Please could you advise on what would be the best card to get for my money..?

find an extra £20 and get a 8800GT 512mb. Best bang for your money at the moment. Only problem is they are quite new and becuase they are such good value for money, it's hard to find one in stock anywhere.

Scan are taking pre-orders for a cheaper 256mb version, but I haven't seen a performance review yet

Here's a review of the 8800GT card - click here At the price it is what they call a 'sweet buy' when compared to the dearer GTX and Ultra versions. TC.

8800gt is the choice for now. there are 8800gts cards coming out that also have 112 stream processors. the current ones's with 96 may be reduced

Should have said make sure your power supply is up to it otherwise that will need replaced as well.
