The Graphics on my comp started going downhill lately, and yesterday comp will only just boot up then a load of gobblygook comes on the screen then nothing no display at all.
Took the Graphics card out and the small fan was all manged up with fluff etc, after a good cleaning still the fan was not turning and after putting it back in the comp attempted to re-boot, same problem again, tried another graphics card (an old one) and it works fine but display is not that good. So what is a good graphics card my motherboard is a AMD GA-71XE. or AMD751/756 chipset slot A processor Mainboad in a Aldi computer and it's been a good one up to now, can anyone recommend a good graphics card for this Motherboard ? while I am at it I will add some more memory, my son is games mad so it will have to be up to top end gameing and graphics, can anyone help and point me in the right direction on prices for memory and the graphics card,
Sorry forgot to mention that it was a Radeon 9600 TX that has gone bang version .100, is the 9800 pro much improved on my version, I don't mind paying a little more than 100 quid if the card is that good ?
These are just three of 500 threads containing info about graphics cards - just use the search bar on the left of the screen.
My two cents here? Personal choice for under £100 would either be a midrange card from the current crop (e.g. nVidia's 6600 or equivalent), or a top range card from the last generation (nVidia's 5xxx series). The advantage of the latter is that many are now available overclocked (faster) out of the box.
The second link you provided has an MSI 6600GT listed at £115.09!
Admittedly it's a PCI-E card, and so unsuitable for Giantsquid, but that's the cheapest I've seen this chipset for, and I can wholeheartedly reccommend it as by far the most powerful card for the money.
