Not convinced the HIS x1950 Pro is the best value for money, Please suggest another

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am building my first system and have decided on everything but the graphics card.




That's the system.

I'm wanting a sub £100 grapics card which will do the same job as the one I have already selected, unless you feel I have already made the best choice.

If you could have a look on this site http://www.overclockers.co.uk/index.php and make a suggestion it would be appreciated.

Also I am not planning on doing any overclocking yet until I buy the proper fans and stuff, will the 500w psu supplied with the antec case be suitable for what I am running.

Cheers

Chris

Get the Powercolor X1950XT 256mb version for £111..it is a crazy powerful card...you will not be disappointed with it, much more powerful than the pro. One of THE most powerful dx9 cards...just under the x1950xtx which is THE most powerful dx9 card..and thats still £200+..so for £111..i think that is the best bang for buck card available.

Dont buy a 650i Motherboard. Go for P35 if you plan to overclock

I'm not a fan of ATI merely because HIS/Diamond/Powercolor/Saphire are very poor manufacturers IMO.

I would say try the GeForce 7950 http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...=56&subcat=328

Made by BFG, I personally like eVGA but never tried BFG before - heard they're good cards but its up to you really.

If you're looking for ATI specifically maybe someone else here can help
