    I may be able to spare £50 and if I'm lucky £100 for a decent graphics card, so firstly ATI or Nvidia? I'd hope I'd be able to support COD maybe, but better if possible. So just post any advice you may have about graphics cards and I'm sure it'll all be useful :) Thanks.

    You can buy 260 GTXs used on the marketplace for around £90/100, or you can get 5770s new for £120.

    Well you need to provide more information. You haven't said what games your playing, at what resolution, on what computer.

    I have a 4870 on the marketplace which would do you fine... You need 75 posts to be able to use the market place though...

    Well I don't know much about all of that stuff you see, and well my computer isn't even built yet I have yet to buy the components, and I'll be sure to check that out if I get to 75 posts :)

    Well, Bloody_Pete is offering it for £70 and there's nothing to stop you two discussing it over PM...

    To be honest, there's not going to be a better deal. Folks may tell you to buy a 5770 for DX11 but there's no point as the card won't be powerful enough to run it anyway, so you'll be stuck on DX9/10; the 4870 is also more powerful than a 5770.

    P.S.

    @Ph4Zed: New avatar eh ;)
