Best card for £100-140

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

So i have about £160 and i need a gfx card and power supply... Im getting a Fractal Design Newton 800w power supply new off a friend for £60 so that leaves me with £100 but i can save up abit if needed for a graphics card.

So im wondering what would be the best graphics card for around £100-140? I will be playing Counter strike source mainly but i will like it to be able to handle some other games like BC2 and dirt 3 when that comes out.

Thanks in advance

Edit - I need a graphics card because my old one fried and im borrowing my friends gtx 260!

Novatech's sticker on an MSI GTX460 1GB = £130.
Or if you like ATI the 6850 is £135

Other places to order are available, like Scan.co.uk and aria.co.uk, but those are the cards I'd go for.

It's B-grade. He'll only get a few months warranty from OcUK, and since all RMAs in the UK are done through retailers, he'll only be getting a card with 6 moths warranty so that's not such a great deal. Used 470s go for around 130 here and on ebay anyway.

MSI don't do direct warranty support in the UK.

still... a bargain is a bargain, and OcUK will RMA it for you to manufacturer if something was to go wrong.

But if b grade isnt the way to go,

The 5850 for £20 more is better. It performs better for the price especially when overclocked. As for support, OcUK only offer 6 months on B-grades. And since RMAs are done through the stores here, he would only get 6 months warranty and if he comes to sell it off it would be tough. Since MSI don't do direct RMAs like ASUS or Gigabyte, they are kind of screwed. And OcUK b-grade products kind of suck anyway.

460 and 6850 trade blows, take your pick. You can also buy a 5850 which should be stronger than both or if your lucky you can find a cheap open box 5870 for that price.

For £200 you can get a GTX480 which is LOADS faster than a GTX560...
