i have just built a system with i5-3570K (it was the cheapest in amazon), asrock H77M, 8gb ram, XFX P1-550S-XXB9 PRO550W PSU. To save dosh I fitted my 2 year old geforce gt430 1GB GPU. Now I am thinking of changing it but cant afford more than about £65 - £70. So is it worth changing with a limited budget - if I change will I notice any difference. I dont play modern games (Oblivion is most up to date) but do a lot of photo and video editing. Any advice would be appreciated.

Save up until you can afford a 7850 or 7870. Their great mid range cards. But if you wanted you could get a 7770 now which is a significant upgrade.

thanks for that - 7770 still a bit more than I can convince " her indoors" is justifiable. \had looked at GT640 (but its only DDR3) or HD 7750

Then the 7750 is second. But for the few pounds more it's worth the extra money for a 7770.
