Default Graphics card

Hey all,

Well I'm planning to go to conroe soon but I have a AGP graphics card and the board has PCI-E

So I am looking for a cheap card that is better then my AGP Nvidia 5600 Ultra

This any good?

Ebuyer

If not that any other cheap one?

Yep pzero gave you the best mid-range video card out there. But if you dont have much money the 6600 is still better than the 5600

Nobody likes ATI's here

I think you should get a 7600GT, to make your upgrade actually worthwhile.

these are well priced cards around your price range..

those are pounds, not dollars.. i don't have pound key on my keyboard. some of the brands i've chosen i'm not too familiar with since they're not available in canada/USA; but i'm sure they're fine.

http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/107797 x1600xt $71.58

http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/99374 x800gto $53.68

http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/101136 6600gt $59.29

http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/100178 x800xt $81.60

the x800gto or the x1600xt seem to be best value for me.. i can't tell you which one is the best though.. they both have their pros and cons i guess..

Now im a bit spoilt for choice what choose I don't like ATI because I've had bad experiences and bit scared of going with Geforce graphics cards that are not Nvidia
