Hi,

I am looking for a graphics card and I have a max of £60 to spend. It has to be AGP aswell. Any suggestions?

Cheers

And a very good card it is too. Installed it myself about a month ago and I'm perfectly happy.

Will this card be able to cope with newish games on a machine that is 2.6ghz, 512mb

It should be able to play games ok but you may have to turn down detail and shadows etc if it starts to struggle.

No problems at all should be able to play all new games out with minimum of fuss

Ok thanks for your help everyone. Just to double check it should play games that have OPEN GL?

Cheers

I have to say I disagree with mike1967, the 6200 that 007al gave you a link to will play most games but it will not play them all. FEAR and some of the newest games require a powerful graphics card. Both cards are OPEN GL complient so thats not a problem. It depends what you want to play on your PC and if the rest of the PC is up to it, you could buy the most expensive graphics card on the market but if the game needs more memory or a faster processor it just won't run.
