Evening all

As the title says....I have £140...what's the best card out there right now for the money?

I think for the money I want to spend, it's between these:

GTS 250 1GB?

ATI 5770 1GB?

ATI 5830 1GB? (Slightly over budget)

GTX 460 768MB? (Again...over budget)

Thanks guys

GTX460 is the choice from that list, but how over budget is it? 30-50Euros?

What about the fact that it only has 768MB? Gates like GTA4 need as much memory as possible dont they?

^ Depends on resolution,etc. For most games, that should still be fine.

So I usually play Command & Conquer titles, Mount & Blade Warband, GTA4, HAWX, DIRT etc

Maybe I need to stretch to a 1GB version?

^ What resolution? 1920*1080? If so, yes, a 1GB card will help a little bit but not much. This is assuming everything else (GPU clock,etc) are the same to the 1GB card

Might just have to do that.

I have a 600W Toughpower PSU...that gonna be enough for this thing and 'eventually' a Phenom Quad or Hex core?

Do these cards need 2 PCI-e power connectors? I can just get like a molex or similar convertor right?

Wow - this one has 2Gb - surely that's gotta be the winner here???

(Although pushing the budget up a lot)
