Default New graphics card for £100

Hello,

I need some expert advice. I'm trying to decide what graphics card to get for my gaming PC to be. My budget is around £100 to £110 and preferably I'd like to restrict my purchases to the popular UK PC component website Ebuyer - Cheap Computers, Laptops, Digital Cameras, TVs & more! - since that's where I'm getting the rest of the components for the build.

I have my eyes on the following graphics cards on ebuyer:

NVIDIA Graphics Cards:


£99.99 - ZOTAC 9600GT AMP Edition 512MB GDDR3 Dual DVI HDTV out HDCP PCI-E Graphics Card

£108.99 - Inno3D 8800GT 512MB DDR3 256bit Dual DVI HDTV Out PCI-E Graphics Card includes GRAW2 PC game

£112.96 - Point Of View 8800GT 512MB GDDR3 256bit Dual DVI PCI-E Graphics Card

ATI Graphics Cards:

£99.99 - Gecube HD 3870 512MB GDDR3 OC edition Dual DVI TV Out PCI-E Graphics Card

£103.95 - PowerColor HD 3870 XT PCS 512MB GDDR3 256bit Dual DVI TV Out PCI-E Graphics Card

£112.52 - Sapphire HD 3870 Ultimate Edition 512MB GDDR4 Dual DVI TV Out PCI-E Graphics Card

£119.95 - Gecube HD 3870 XT Overclocked Edition 512MB GDDR4 256bit Dual DVI PCI-E Graphics Card

Which one should I get?

The best performing card you have on the list is the 8800gt, o just get the Inno3d one, HD 3870 and 9600gt is tied for 2nd

Ebuyer should have the 4850 for sale either tomorrow or the next day. Going from other prices in the uk it will be approximately 130-140 quid. In a few weeks it will most likely drop down a bit to like 110-115 or so

Hello,

Cheers everyone. I've been looking at the HD 4850. If it's available in the UK at a price close to £110 I might consider getting it, otherwise I'll probably get the Gigabyte 8800GT 512MB GDDR3 Dual DVI HDCP HDTV out PCI-E Graphics Card.
