  1. What video card do you have?
  2. NVidia 9500GT, which needs to be changed at some point. Was thinking either the GTX 460, or the Radeon 6850.
  3. Thanks, this is a good set up. If i look about i should be able to get something like this for £30-£40 cheaper hopefully. I think i will invest in a 560TI after.
  4. I would recommend GTX 460 (768mb or 1gb depending on your budget) or HD 5770/5830. 560Ti is still overpriced IMHO.
  5. Would you recommend the GTX 460 or the 6850? thanks for the help so far you two :)
  6. Thanks :) .
    just a quick question about that PSU. is that the best for that price, just that I can a lot of 600/650W PSU's at the same price..?
