Hi All,

I am in the market for a new Graphics card as my last one went bang, at the moment I am using a Geforce 256 from Nvidea, (robbed it out of an old computer) and it is fine, but a little old now, what can be bought to replace this ? my old graphics card was a Radeon 9600TX so something like it would be ok, I did want a real good one and the good folk on here recommended one but in all honesty I cannot afford it at £132:00.

I would like to spend about 50 quid, or does someone know of a good special 'buy today price'
Thanks for all the help,

of course there is always Ebay...I bought an ATI 9250 128MB AGP card...it still hasnt arrived (hopefully today tho but I am at work so wont know til I get back) but its very good and I know this cos a mate of mine has exactly the same one and it plays all games no problem...so I am looking forward to it...but get one from Ebay...this one cost me under £30...its just below the 9550 so whoever paid £60 for that good on you cos that is a bargain for that card but I am sure you could have got it a lot cheaper on Ebay...

They all look good to me ! but I will go with you on this one, out of these which is the best in your opinion ? remembering it may be used for gaming occasionally, and is a AGP fit,

Thanks as usual,
