Fastest Graphics Card available for £100???

Inc VAT and delivery. Sisters Pc is just not fast enough for her son's constant game playing, most of his games play quite well on the current geforce fx5600 (overclocked) and amd 2600+, but some are just a little too jerky to be enjoyable (he say's) my attempts at an overclock helped a little but there is no satisfying the little blighter. My sister doesn't have a lot of cash and has set a £100 tops budget. I thought i'd post this here to save myself an hour trawling the web as many hands make light work if you know what i mean.

Any suggestions appreciated.

Many thanks tomjerry, even if there a little better, they may stop a the few dropped frames he's getting. Will tick this as resolved as now i'm off to see what sort of benchmarking these cards achieve in comparison.

Thanks again.

Get a 9800 Pro (£129), otherwise your onky option is 9600XT £95 click here which is not much better than 5600.
