If you're partial to Nvidia cards, check out the GeforceFX 5600's for some budget performance. The ti4200 and ti4800 cards are still quite decent for the price, too, if you aren't fussed about having a DX9 card.

If you're more of an ATI fan, you could look at the Radeon 9500's or 9600's for some low price, high-performance action. Personally, I'd say the Radeons are a bit of a better deal right now, but some people still prefer the Nvidia cards.

The Radeon 9600 series are generally a better buy overall, however, if the price is not yet down to their level, I can recommend a GeForce4 Ti 4200.

Note the location, England.

Newegg doesn't ship anywhere outside of the US or Puerto Rico at the moment.
