Hello,

I have £135.00 to blow on a new graphics card, the highest game I plan on playing is Bad Company 2/ArmA 2 and also play old games as far back as 2002 like Bf1942, I probably won't use it immediately but rather wait until I can get a new PSU also.

I prefer to buy from the following sites:
http://www.cclonline.com
http://www.scan.co.uk
http://www.ebay.co.uk - New only of course with good feedback


This is my current build:
CiT 500w (two +12V rails combined to 27A) power supply
CiT 1008 Midi-ATX case
PNY GeForce 8400GS 512MB
AMD 'Regor' (240)
Hitachi Deskstar 7K1000.C (1TB)
80mm case fan
Sony DVD-R/CD-RW
Biostar TA770E
2GB OCZ PC2-6400

Thanks,
Nathan.

Cia, I am not trying to bash you, but that card is known for its over-heating and being really loud. What is your resolution? Do wan't to play with everything on? If you do you will want to buy a little more RAM and a tri or quad core probably. But you could easily play that game on medium to high settings and good FPS with a hd5770. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... amusing that you have a PCI-E 1.1 or higher that should work. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... That would also be good. I know you like to buy from those other sites, but these are just cards that would work.
