Hi, have finally decided to uprade my graphics card. I can get the card I want at about the same price from each of the following, but havn't use any of them before. Which would the forum recommend? I'm happy with retail lite if the serice is going to be better and will be using standard shipping.

Pixmania - full retail version

Tekheads.co.uk - lite retail version

PC World Online - unknown version

Any input appreciated, thanks.

What graphics card are looking at getting? I haven't used any of the above suppliers either but if we knew what the graphics card you are thinking of there may be better? It would also help if we had some idea of your computer specifications.

I posted about updating my GFX card a few days ago here and on another site. Have looked around and spoken to a few people and decided to go for it.

PC Spec: AMD 2800XP+, 1GB Dual DDR400 RAM, Sapphire Radeon 9600 Pro 128MB, ASUS A7N8X Deluxe Motherboard, Antec TruePower 480W PSU + 2 SATA Drives and 3 Optical Drives.

Card £210 - £215 delivered from the above suppliers.

HTH, dagwoood.

Before buying from Pixmania, I suggest you read this:

Thanks, but that's the PCI-Express version, which is generally cheaper then AGP (anyone know why?) and I only have an AGP 8X/Pro port.

Thanks I found that thread last night.. Thought I'd give people a chance to say something good about them before not buying from there.

Thanks, I hadn't considered a Gigabyte as the card I have is a Sapphire.

I guess they're pretty much the same, has anyone got anythign to say about either card before I decide?

Has anyone ever used PCW Online or TekHeads?

I've used Overclockers and they are very good.

Bit more expensive at (£211.44 Including VAT at 17.5%) but i can recommend them.

I've ordered from overclockers, have used them before but didn't look as they're usually expensive compared to other sites. Should be getting it tomorrow, will let you know how it turns out.

Thanks All.
