Default Best Graphics card

Whats the best graphics card without the TV card and all that fancy additional crap and where and how much can i get it for? Is there somewhere I can get it cheap... Also Im from the UK so can I order a card from the States and use it in England?

Thanks in advance for any replies!

the best graphics out there today would be the ati 9800XT 256 MB .. i dont know if they make the XT series in All-in-wonder outfits yet but you could always check out ATi's site at www.ati.com ...

dunno abt the payment thingy though .. perhaps others could help ya out in that ..

try the Radeon 9800 Pro. the XT is a recent development and will probably be pricey...
but check www.newegg.com and www.tigerdirect.com for good prices.
