    GTS250 is the limit @ that price point - far better than the 9600GSO you mention :)

    Good thinking, I hear ATI cards carry infectious diseases.



    As for your request, this card meets all the criteria but isn't in stock. This is in stock but is a good bit slower.


    But seriously, unless you REALLY need Physx/3D Vision/CUDA, this is the better card to get, by quite a long way.

    Don't worry, I understand, but he may have his reasons, justified or not.

    Non the less, joe if you get your post count up you could probably get a pretty decent card second hand on the members market for that sort of money. Read the FAQ if you're not aware of it.

    If you hunt around you may find a 260GTX for just over £90 on offers, etc.

    Otherwise your looking at a 250GTS.

    Nope! GEFORCE....Simples, he prefers to limit his choices, even to his detriment.

    You should have specified best Palit GeForce 250 GTS 1024MB that includes World of Warcraft Trial for £89.99 IMO.

    I would personally look around and find myself a GTX260-216. A GTS250 isn't worth it imho and will struggle in newer games.

    Also make sure you get 216sp version of the GTX260, not the old 192sp version!

    As mentioned, if you can get a GTX260 go for it, otherwise, unless you have a seriously strong reason not to buy AMD (other than its what you're used to, or your mate told you not to) I'd definately consider that 4870, both the 4870 and GTX260 are quite a lot stronger than anything else on the market in that price range.

    I just sold my 260 for around 70 quid so see if you can find one second hand because theyre a lot faster than anything else new.

    Ok ok... ill go for the 260GTX for some extra pennys. :D

    well i never liked ATI, had problems with an ati card in the past and it wouldnt work with anything. probally bought a dodgy one or somthing but it put me right off them.

    also when ever i asked about graphics cards, people keep saying to get ATI, dispite many times asking for geforce only. and its happened again :p

    just tell me what 260GTX card i should get for £120. (also might as well tell me which ATI card for £120 also).

    cheers me geez

    It's more that people are pointing out that you're limiting your options. Theres nowt wrong with ati cards.
