£150 - £200? or lower in fact


Also while looking at the mobo - does that use different Ram?

Well what ram do you have. Im sure it will be fine because its ddr so dont worry about that.
I recommend getting this card. dont buy the open box one though that means its been used before.

You wont need much better than this at the moment and prob best for your price range.

I would go with the ASUS mobo, if it will fit your case.

ASUS has a reputation for making excellent mobo's: ASUS K8N4-E Deluxe, NF4, S754, PCI-E - ATX.

Here is a review of the board:

http://www.pcstats.com/articleview.cfm?articleID=1787

The reviewer says that his only complaint with the board is the chipset fan. I am buying a DFI board and the chipset fan on it is also suspect. I don't know why manufacturers don't clean-up their act, in that regard.

i agree with geekster50 asus in my opinion are the best. i recently bought one. but this is for a skt 754 cpu and i found this gigabyte one to be the best suited for stuaz. i think that gfx will b very good but if u want to pay a bit more i can find a better one. wat do u think?

Asus aren't to great with AMD by the way. See if you can find a 6800GS in that price range.
