At the £60 end of things, you can get a ATI HD4670 512MB or a GeForce 9600. You will have to go through the specs to decide which is best at that end.

I've just got a new XFX GeForce GTS 250 (1GB version), which is overclocked from Lambda Tek, (where I get most of my kit from), for £120. You can get the 512Mb version from the same website for just under £100, (if you wait a few weeks).



The GTS 250 is a re-branded of the 9800GTX+, which is a re-branded card of the 8800GT, (I think!). So the ATI equivalent is usually regarded as the ATI HD4850. Having a quick look on Lambda Tek, they have a Sapphire RADEON HD4850 512MB for £100.23


And a Gainward NVIDIA GeForce 9800GT (1Gb Version) for £101.46


It seems the Gainward is the better one of the two, but again check the specs, but that the sort of area you need to be looking at. One last thing, having worked on Packard Bell's, I know they not the most spacious cases for gaming graphics cards, so I would check the sizes of any card you are looking at to see if it will actually fit. You can always get a new case for as little as £30 and just transfer all the internal parts over.
