Best graphics card under £100 for my old pc

What graphics card under £100 should i put in my old pc (core 2 quad 4gb ram) to run DAYZ CRYSIS and SIMCITY at decent framerates. It currently has a geforce 9600 gt that seems to be wheezing away and id like to upgrade but only have £100 budget, I was thinking of the xfx hd7770 but literally only based on a quick search online, any alternative suggestions would be appreciated cheers.

    i have same pc config just as you but i pick hd7850 which costs INR 14000/- but i suggest to you get hd7750 or gtx 650 2gb edition. here is the comparison link..

  2. As long as you do n't expect too much the 7770 is a fair gamer but I'd suggest you extend the budget just a little and aim for the superior GTX650Ti.
    Also bear in mind these cards will only (probably) have 1Gb of memory and restricted memory bandwidth (speed) so they'll all take a heavy performance hit if you apply any anti-aliasing.
    As always, check the power supply can cope before committing.
    A few places to look: Dabs, CCL, Aria, Overclockers, Misco, Novatech, Pixmania Scan and Ebuyer.

    Ok Ive seen GTX 650 base model for as little as same as 7770 for a 1 gig what is the difference between this and the Ti?

    Ive found a gtx650ti for £79.99 by a company called Leadtek and can find very little about them online, reviews etc, this seems awfully cheap.
  5. Buy it with a credit card for maximum protection.
    Do n't ignore the Distance Selling Regulations (Google it).
    Leadtek are a lesser known company these days but they have a long past, grab it with both hands because you'll not find better value.
    Anywhere.
