Budget graphics card recommendation

  Rob6 00:14 30 Jul 2007

Hi my Saphhire Radeon x700 has died and I'm after something that will cope with some games I still play ie Deus Ex: Invisible War, plus Google Earth, but does not need to be leading edge. My processor is Sempron 2800+.

An ATi Radeon 9550 or similar should suit your purpose.

Thanks. That looks like it is c £40. Any recommendations around £25 ...or at that price are these just not going to do the job for me? (Not sure if is relevant but the slot is APG)

Might do you click here , lower than that and its something like this click here which in my opinion is just cutting it too low, this might also do you click here but it is a low spec card.

Have to say the 9550 is a better card than any of the ones I linked to above and I personally would go for that, money really tight the FX5500, the others I just don't rate, they might do you but I just think they are too slow and old.

Not a bad card for the money.
