    6800GT would be the boy for that, or even a 6600Gt

    I spec'd those components from Microdirect.co.uk, the retailers section will give you a good idea of who to use tho, support forums for scan.co.uk and komplett.co.uk are both on these forums, and i tend to shop from both of these too.

    I'd say you might be best with a 6600GT for around £120-£150 making the final price just about £700, they are pretty good mid range cards, if you want 6800GT's you are talking 250+ from what i can see.
