Default Best Graphics card for £200

Given £200 to spend on an AGP graphics card which would you say is best? The main use would be for PC Games, especially role playing games like world of warcraft.

6800 GT would be your best bet if that is your price range. You can get one for like $280 USD. It will max out every game today and even allow you to use AA and AF.

I would suggest a Leadtek or eVGA. If I were to get a 6800 GT, it would be the Leadtek one, but the eVGA is good also and is the favorite here at TF.

There is a sale on Leadteks there. They have a HUGE all copper heatsink.


(there is a special edition and a normal one both under £200, the special edition uses PCB and has faster memory. I think that sale ends tonight, as its been there for a week and a bit.)
