Best AGP Graphics Card for £60

Whats the best AGP graphics card there is for around £60?

I thought about the Nvidia 7600gt 256mb.

Is this any good.

I would like to be able to play most modern games, obviously not at MAX settings, on a 17" monitor.


Can anyone recommend a good Micro ATX PSU for about £30-£40. About 400w if possible.

Many thanks

Thats about as good as you will get at this price range and it will play anything but you will have to drop the settings and the resolution.

I would get more than a 400 watt supply. I think the 7600GT recommends a 450 watt one.

Does it have to be Micro ATX will a standard ATX not fit?

I think it has to be Micro ATX because the current PSU is very small. It's only 100mm in diameter and 75mm high. I don't think a ATX one would fit as the Micro is in with a bit of a squeeze! lol. It's a pain becasue I can't find many micro atx PSU's! Are the screw holes the same on ATX and M-ATX PSU's?

Thanks for the comment about the graphics, I will go for the 7600gt.

I would get the card first and see if it works with your psu. If not I would get a atx case with a psu included and transfer everything over to the new larger case. This looks daunting but is easy to do.

According to their system requirements the 7600gt requires a minimum 350w power supply.
So as citadel says,it won't hurt to try it out with your current psu if it's a 350w.
Mind you,if your'e after a 400w psu i'm guessing your current one is 250-300w.
