Hi there everyone, I'm about to buy a new computer since my old one is broken and decided I want a nice good one; especially for newish games and the like. I'm building it myself (with the help of my brother) but I want advice from other people so I know I'm getting the best possible deal! So anyway, at this point I'm just unsure which graphics card I should buy. If it is a necessary bit of information, I plan to buy this CPU:
Roughly low to middle £600ish - For games remember :) And that 600 will include the monitor as well as case, RAM etc etc etc - the only thing not included is ANY software or OS's - I'll deal with that separately :)
Is it an Nvidia card you are definitely after? Just yesterday I upgraded my 8800GTS to a ATI 4870 1GB, my 8800 was good but the ATI is so much better. I picked it up off Ebay for £100, sealed in box. I am running COD4, Fallout and Mass Effect on full the card doesn't even cough!
Handy benchmarking tool that lists GFX cards by rank.
