i`ve only got around £40.00 to spend on a card.any Suggestions?

Either the FX5200 or Ti4200. If these are still too much for your budget go the the GeForce4 MX 440 128mb whcih is retailing around £35-£40.

I recently bought a 3d blaster fx 5600 for £84 which although a lower end card, does the job rightly for me, which means I have a 64mb GeForce4 MX 440 sitting doing nothing which you can have if you want it,click the yellow box and let me know where to send it.
Apart from not doing pixel shading it is an ok card if you aint gonna do anything too demanding.

£40 MAX? if so could'nt see past the ATI Radeon 9200 my-self.

Spend another month or two saving up and get a Radeon 9600 or FX 5600 it would time and money well spent.

But if £40 max is really the case this is what it will get you:

1. ATI Radeon 9200:click here

2. N'VIDA FX 5200:click here

Both are retail boxed with all software and in your price range, have a look at the next range up from each ATI 9600 and FX 5600 as the is some bargins to be had.

I would'nt worry too much about the reviews as people only seem to write when something goes wrong, just look up the card you like on google for proper reviews and benchmarks
