im not much of an ATI guy but i think sapphire make the best ATI cards.

and if you go with the X800GTO2 you can unlock and overclock it to an X850XT PE

Sapphire ATI Radeon X800 GTO² from http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatal...CI_Series.html £3 less than the ASUS, and Saphire is the best one for ATI.

Click on the link to the forums for how to unlock it.

You want to get the latest ones of the ATI site. Remember to un-instal the old drivers if you had a nvidia card.
