    Any ideas chaps/chapesses?

    Would a 2nd hand 9800PRO be the best bet and show the most gain for £60?

    Its for a mate, he says he's got an Athlon XP2800 and 1Gb RAM.

    Hi

    For £60 I don't think you'll be able to get a better card. If you're lucky you might find a 6600GT for that price (a little faster) but they often go for more

    The 9800Pro, although old, is still a good card

    Get into the MM, theres a 6800LE that mods to 16/6 in there for 70inc royal mail special delivery.

    That would show a HUGE increase over the Ti4600.

    A FX5900XT can be had at a good price.

    5900XT might jus about keep up with a normal 9800
    5900Ultra is around 9800pro
    5950Ultra around that of a 9800XT

    the 9800 series was the better card though, unless your name is DP
