I take it that EVGA or EGVA or whatever is Nvidea? sorry, I'm not up to speed with graphics cards at the mo, especially with all this SLi stuff...

But what about the spec above with the 512mb of ATi Radeon X700? That surely will be suitable...?!

Yeah the Nividia is what he is talking about but I woudln't worry about SLI its alot of money and most only give i think 20% increase in proformance. i probably would go with the ATI x800 at the least.

So would you say that 256mb of X800GTO ATi would be good?

You'll get much better performance out of an Nvidia Geforce 6800/7800.

It's worth spending a few extra £, just for that.

My only other option is a nVidia 6600 GT DDR3

Would that be better or worse than the X800 GTO?

both are 256 mb
