    Thanks very much for the help - I am now debating going for this one - seems to pack a lot of punch for the price... http://scan.co.uk/Products/ProductIn...oductID=589459

    That seems quite a high price for a card with only 12 streams?
    It's nvidia but wouldn't this be about the same for less.

    Hi - yes that was my concern as well - all my other components will give me a pretty quiet PC. According to the reviews it copes well and the noise is well not there!

    HIS make good products, but i'd serously wait for the budget DX10 cards. They will be around the same price, and if nothing else, you get the advantage of unified shaders.

    Hi gha128,
    Thought you might like to take a look at this
    It'll show you what performance difference you can expect between the cards.

    Hope it helps

    Yeah, be careful which stats you compare when looking at cards. The 1950 pro is considerably more powerful than the 7600gt! Stick to 3d mark ratings or similar if you can find them...or benchs from specific games. Ofc, always bear in mind how well a card with overclock too. eg a 7900gs can be a better choice than a 1950 pro if not fussed about noise or stressing hardware, but at stock, the 1950pro is a much better card.

    its all relative

    hope building goes well!
