I need a gfx card that plays all the latest games. This is a beginner rig, with a Q6600, and assortment of recycled computer parts like a G31m-s motherboard with a max 4gb 667mhz ddr2 memory. I would like a GFX card that caries on into my next rig but I also want it under £100. In fact, I found an XFX 6750 for £67. Is this good enough for the latest games? If spending an extra £30 would make it future proof then I would consider spending it. It must be DX11, and I would prefer GDDR5. Also, if anyone can find it cheaper than £67 I would appreciate that. Would any part of my rig bottleneck anything else?

Also my power is 600w. Is this acceptable for the card?

Prob 1920 x 1200 when I get a better monitor. For now I might use my TV so 1920 x 1080.

The HD 6750 will run all games fine at that resolution - just dont expect to max out every game with it.

Unless you overclock that CPU, the GTX 460 will be bottlenecked.

There will still be bit of a bottleneck,but you should be able to max out most games, but not games like Crysis, Metro 2033 etc.

Get the 1 GB version.

Also, if the PCI e x1 and PCI e x 16 slots are separated by just a row of capacitors, would there be space to fit a gfx card and something in the x1 slot?

Depends on which card you decide to buy.
