    I'm currently running an Shuttle SB81P with a Sapphire 256mb X800XL. I was wondering if anyone can recommend a card that will fit and would be a definite improvement on the X800XL.

    I'm running a Dell 2405FPW @ 1920 X 1200 res in Windows and playing moist of my games in smaller windowed mode.

    It is currently running the following on a 350W power supply:

    Intel 3.2Ghz 775 Processor
    1 GB Crucial Ballistix Ram(might be upgrading to 2GB)
    160GB Samsung HDD

    Any suggestions would be grateful(Keep in mind size and heat limitations please !!)

    I've been recommended this:

    EVGA GeForce 7900 GT KO SuperClocked 512MB GDDR3 HDTV-Out/Dual DVI (PCI-Express) - Retail (GX-007-EA)

    Price: £219.95 (£258.44 Including VAT at 17.5%)

    What are eVGA like as manufacturers? Are the decent and reliable & is there a reliability issue with 7900s?

    Also any chance of getting an X1900XT or XTX in there or is that pushing my luck?
