    Looking to get a new graphics card(maybe!!)

    I'm going away on Monday and won't be back for a couple of weeks. Now since i'll be paid during my time away i'm considering purchasing a new graphics card. I'm not looking to get the top of the range card but something reasonable for my money. I'll have roughly 200 quid to spend, possibly more. I'd appreciate any suggestions on which card i should purchase? I'd also like to know whether you think i should wait and stick with my current 5900XT for the time being?

    if ur current card is running games well enough then u may aswell wait and put a little more money to get a 6800gt. at the end of the day ts gotta be worth putting the extra if ur willing to spend over £200.
