    Hi all!

    My 8800gt recently got bust and I am left with a system without any display. I would like to buy a card(new or used) for no more than 30 quid from ebay. Can someone please advise me on which card would be a good choice with the same if not better gaming performance?

    Thanks! :)

    Rather than take a punt on the 'bay, why not stick up a Wanted thread in the Marketplace? You'll get more bang for your buck that way.

    Where are you? There's a US/Canada Marketplace board and a "Rest of the World" one too?

    I think the safe choice would be the GT 710 with the 3years warranty, all the others are nearly a decade old.
