About the GTS250 windfire suggested, do you mean this one?
And yeah, I know I should probably start saving up for bigger hardware expansions, but I'm moving out soon, so I can't make really big expenses yet. I probably have enough money to make myself one kickass machine, but it would also mean living with my parents another 2-3 years. I might upgrade more when I moved out and see how much I can actually spend.
Yes, that Point of View GTS 250 512MB is ok.
As the Scan link (in my post above) shows, there are 2 versions of GTS250, 512MB and 1GB. They should not differ much in the price. So, if you can find a 1GB version, I suggest getting that one as it can support better a monitor of up to 1080p.
Though I do not have personal bad experience with buying off from ebay (yet), I would generally avoid it if possible. Is that a brand new POV GTS250 with warranty? If yes, then I suppose it is OK.
I did a little searching and I found this reseller in your country which carries a good selection. It is 4Launch
) and its cheapest GTS250 1GB is a Gigabyte one which is the same price as a 512MB version. It sells at 95 Euro (including BTW).
