    I'm looking to replace my 9500 128Mb with something a bit more substantial for watching 20" HD videos and running a 17" TFT at the same time.

    My computer only has an AGP slot so it would have to be that.

    how does an X700 compare with something like a 9800pro or a 6600GT

    and will a 256 card give a lot extra for my money over a 128 card?

    I have been looking at the following - can anyone reccomend one of these or something else for around £100

    Leadtek WinFast GeForce 6600 GT 128MB DDR3 TV-Out/DVI (AGP) - Retail (GX-050-LT)

    OcUK GeForce 6600 GT 256MB DDR3 TV-Out/Dual DVI (AGP) - Retail (GX-036-OK)

    Sapphire ATI Radeon X700 Pro 128MB GDDR3 TV-Out/DVI (AGP) - Retail (GX-107-SP)

    The X700Pro and 9800Pro are pretty similar. The 6600GT will be faster than both the other cards.

    Should do nicely :)
