At the moment those two cards are the male canine reproductive organs as far as mid range cards go.The nearest ATI alternative would be a last generation 9800xt or 9800pro which should be at the ceaper end of your budget and are still a very good cards.

You could have a standard(NOT le)6800 delivered for about £120. That's a no brainer :) I paid 150 quid for a 6600GT at the beginning of the year.

do you know of any cheaper place than overclocker to buy a 6800 gt? :P

Is it PCI E, or AGP, you're looking for, and how much of a budget.?

A 6800GT, is a big step up from a 6800le, or 6600GT.

Try this at Ebuyer, still way over your £120>130 budget though. click here

i just bought the 6600gt from overclockers. works very well. but depends what you are looking for: PCI or AGP.

its agp and my budget is about £100-£120. would my 350watt psu be ok to power a 6800?
