Looking for new card to replace my nvidia 8600GT,only needs to be around the same level as its only for dvd films and music dvd videos,would not mind a change to ati radeon card.psu is 530w hiper,cpu is core 2 duo 6400.

Would this card be around the 8600GT level.

Yeah, even with the slower DDR2 VRAM, it'slightly better than the 8600GT.

This one is £39.07 using the Super Saver delivery option......

Ok thanks,will take a look.

A HD 4350 will be fine for ~£23 click here. There are many passively-cooled (i.e. silent) ones there too. G

The passivley cooled ones look quite deep and maybe cover up one of my pci slots?

You could be right, & if that bothers you, go for one that has a single-slot cooler: click here, click here or click here.

A single-slot HD 3450 will do too, e.g. click here (it's the one I have), but it doesn't have a dedicated HDMI port like the 4350s have above. G

Oh I'm sorry, I thought you wanted a card around the same level as your 8600GT. If you'd said you just wanted any auld card I would have posted something cheaper and crappier.

You overlooked: "as its only for dvd films and music dvd videos,"

As you well know, he/she could do with a 'worse' one than I've been suggesting too. G

And btw, there's nothing cheap or crappy about the cards I suggested. G
