Which graphics card for my system?

Hello,

This is the system I am planning to build:
-500W PSU
-AMD Phenom II x4 965 Black Edition 3.4Ghz
-Kingston 4GB (2x2GB) DDR2 1066MHz/PC2-8500 HyperX Memory CL5 2.2V
-Gigabyte GA-M720-US3 Motherboard
-Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB 16MB Cache Hard Drive

The only component I need to decide on is the graphics card.
I have £60-65 to spend on it and have no idea what to buy.
Although it may be pushing it, it would be great if this system would run GTA4.

Thanks in advance.

More about which graphics card system
  1. Honestly you could drop back to the 955 to save a bit, it OC's just as well as the 965. Then put more to the GPU, also if you arent going to be OC'ing there isnt much point in getting a BE processor.
  2. Hello and welcome to the forums :)
    +1 to what truhls said,get a 955 instead and you can save about £17:

    And for VGA,a HD 5750 would be fine:
