For that budget, you could get a 8800GT. However, if I were you I'd save a few quid and buy a 9600GT.

 

What, pray tell, is your system?

i'm pretty happy with my 8800 GTS with 320 MB of mammaries and OC'd by the manufacturer. can't recall if it is an eVGA or some other, however. i don't play games like crysis or anything so i don't ever experience frame issues with this.

comrade taks... just because.

I have had quite good experiences with the 8800 GTS 640MB so I don't think there would be major disappointments with that. By now I would porbably buy a GT though.

 

I'm pretty sure I would end up buying the 8800GT in Pidesco's example unless I would be able to use the money that was saved for something of actual value.

I would have suggested a cheap game but your suggestion works too. ;(

My old 7900GTX explodiert! I'm currently using a drawing of a graphics card done on the back of a breakfast cereal packet.

 

So should I just stump up for a 9600GT?

9600 is a great value

 

Very well. I accede to your power-crazed demands.

 

BTW since I'm saving some money on the GPU I think I should get some more RAM

Right, I ordered the 9600GT you suggested, and upgraded to 2gb of RAM. I also bouyght myself a new mouse.

 

Now all I have to do is find time to enjoy all this new kit next week.

The bits have arrived. Any final advice? Otherwise I'm going to open this sucker up and hammer in the parts with a flyswat.
