Hello,

No. What's your budget?

The ATI HD 4850 and 4870 are good graphics cards.

Lol

Then i need a recommendation of a graphics card around 30 pounds that i could purchase that would be good for gaming, mainly halo and halo 2 and some cod4 and css

If these games could run smoothly on a suggested card within my budget then i would be happy?

Thanks??

Lol 30squid is a challenge can't you just not go to the pub for one weekend? A second hand one from fleabay is about the only option. Look for a 8800gt/gts such as:
