IF this is for your sig rig, your 4650 is better than the card you selected.

Keep saving, till you have about £100 and make another thread.

Your 4650 is more suited to source games, so go play some TF2 or CSS for now.

tbh though, you wouldn't be able to overclock the new card to the same speed as your existing card.

What kind of games are you looking to play? If its recent games you haven't got a hope of finding a card for £30 that will play them at any decent framerates unless you are gonna be playing at ridiculously low resolutions. If you are playing alot older games then pretty much any card will do the job. I would maybe suggest looking for a seconds hand 8800GT/S on ebay or something but even they usually gor for a bit more than 30 quid.

I picked up my GTX275 for £70 from here second hand. You need to double your budget for it to be worth your time.
