not too familiar with euroes.... :/ i'd look at the AGP GeForce 6600GT still, they're great cards and cheaper then their older brothers the 6800s

PCI graphics cards are not very good for gaming. If you don't mind waiting the pci express motherboards are coming out soon.
here is one of them:http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatal...ocket_939.html There are other PCI express motherboards on that site too. (I brought my pc from there so you might want to check it out for when you are buying your pc)

i think i will tick with AGP then rather than waiting for new motherboards (im not a waiting person lol). I will just have to look for some good AGP cards that are not too expensive.

LOL, there are AMD motherboards out with PCI-E like the Abit AX8, and AGP is just as good as PCI-E at the moment, because there are no graphics cards that are good enough to be slowed down by AGP yet. i would recommend getting the system you showed everyone but with the winchester core and an Abit AX8 because then you will be able to upgrade for a long time.

anyone got any links to good graphics cards for around £130 dont really want to spend anymore if possible. Ive looked on ebuyer but i just get flooded with too much and i dont know which are good and which are not :/

edit: i remember that ages ago someone posted a jpg on here which compared a lot of graphics cards. I did save it but delete it a while ago. If anyone has it could they attach it please
