I'm hoping to upgrade to a 9800GTX+ and order today and I was just wondering which brand I should buy and which model? I've got a budget of up to £150 approx. so I probably can't get eVGA
. I was also wondering if anybody knew of a cheap place to buy the card
. Help would be much appreciated, thanks.

A few weeks back you could of picked up an EVGA, BFG, XFX etc for £120, prices have gone up on all nvidia cards it seems, cheapest I can find now after a quick look are all not so well known brands -

I guess it's personal preference though, you might not mind paying an extra £30 for a better brand..

Or... You could go for a 8800GTS 512 which you can pick up for £100 retail and if you don't mind second hand there is one on ebay right now with a Accelero S1 for £89.99...

I think I'll just get this one: http://www.in-pcs.co.uk/product/Xper...tail_6362.html
It's only £125.72 total [including VAT & delivery] so it seems like a bargain to me. This has only got to last me until March really so lifetime warrenty etc. isn't really needed; if I spent £30 more on a better brand I think it would be a waste of money tbh.
I can overclock this anyway I expect to make it on par with other branded 9800GTX+s.
. I can't wait till next week now
. *Ordering now!* Thanks anyway though
