    Best Graphics Card for £100

    As subject. I built this PC intending not to game, but now find that I am doing increasing amounts of gaming. Is now a good time to buy a graphics card? If so, what's the best option at around £100.

    Thanks in advance

    For joy, apparently, it was all Franny could do to hold the phone, even with both hands.

    I would be tempted to wait a month. 9800 pro OEM cards are getting closer and closer too £100. The currently sit at about £120-£130 everywhere is currently out of stock, hopefully it will return soon.

    Definatley worth forking out the extra £30 for the 9800 PRO or buy a used one.

    Yep i would advise going for the 9800pro as well. I have just bought an ati oem from scan for £140 inc delievry and vat... yet to arrive though

    If you dont want to spend that much then 9600xt's ra ebeing sold second hand for £70ish and that would be much better than your current card

    Thanks for the advice, I'll wait a while and see what happens to prices.
