Could any one please help
i need to choose a reasonable card to play games like GTA5 mafia 2 but dont understand what is needed
concerning the card i found these the only thing is the 96oo gt is double the price of the other two

Nvidia Geforce GT220 PCI-E 2GB
Nvidia Geforce 9600GT PCI-E 2GB
nVIDIA GeForce GTX 220 HDMI
or if you think ATI is better could you suggest one around £100 give or take or is more needed.
im running Windows 7 64bit AMD64 dual core 3800+ 2.00ghz 6 gig ram
nvidia geforce 8500gt

any help here would be gratefully accepted and many thanks in advance

for the money you're saying ati's better.
nvidia is a little more expensive

Thanks guys for your feedback its very much appreciated,
is this the one you are suggesting,
XFX Radeon HD 5750 Graphics adapter - 1 GB - GDDR5 SDRAM
and do you know why the other cards have more ram ie 2gig and the one you suggest has 1gig is that not important sorry to have to ask more but that part is confusing to me i thought the more ram the better, i guess not a!
PS the card you guys suggest looks impressive and is in my price bracket :) 
Thank you very much rocky41 and mohsentux for your help

More RAM is better for higher resolutions but 1GB is alot..
You need more than that for Eyefinity resolutions so 1GB is good..
