Hi no its PCI express on my motherboard, I was looking at ATI 100714800 Radeon All-In-Wonder X1900 and astonished that theres a store in the US selling them for £130 it called jr.com and then over here they are well into the £300s. Its not fair, why do we pay so much more.
The 9600 was a good card in its day but its really been surpassed by the next lot. Depending on the amount of money you are prepared to spend, and this is the deciding factor really, you can get a Geforce 6600GT for about the £90 mark or a 7600GS for about £100-110. Theres literally hundreds of cards out there and the only reasonable way to cut them down a bit is to decide on a budget. If you say how much you are willing to spend and an example of what new game you would like to be able to play (assumming the rest of your PC is up to it as well) then perhaps someone could give more advice. Otherwise its a bit like saying what car will I buy? Totally meaningless without more information, theres no way to give advice without more info.
