my uncle used to have that card, it still plays most games maxed out although it may struggle with newer games at high resolutions

well, if you're running it in your sig rig, expect a bottleneck, but it's a good card for that price i would think, a lot better than the mainstream 8500GT drivel you'll see being sold now. Lower than 1280x1024, you ought to be good if you stick to medium/high settings, and don't pile on the AA/AF

Yes, They are good cards the were one of the bests at one time. They are like a 7900GT I think.

You will be good with the 1280c1024 for most games maxed out. Anything in 06 you should be able to play at 1600x1200.

I know it'll prbably be frowned upon just for mentioning it, but....

I doubt XFX still has any 7800GTXs instock. I'd get it cheap, and RMA it if at all possible. At worst you've lost a few bucks in the cost of shipping...

BTW. I don't know what are good deals and bad deals on UK stuff since the value of a card there is a bit different
