    Ok... need to get a decent video card for a friend... i personally know absolutely nothing about gfx cards :p... so have turned to my refuge...

    currently considering buying this one:
    http://web6.scan.co.uk/Products/Info.asp?WPID=26017

    is that any good.. will be used for a little gaming.. mainly gfx design i believe...

    if you are a gfx card guru... and think thats crap...
    have a look through
    http://www.scan.co.uk/products/vga.htm

    £130 is the budget.. if you see anything sexeh there for £130 leave a msg :)

    cheers

    g4 i 4200 is around that price range.... as is the soon to be released raon 9500 series... the pro or the regular... and should perform better... the 9500pro is better than the ti4600 but is prob a tad more expensive than the 130quid range specified...

    for right now.. the ti4200 rules to roost... nice card... make sure you get it from a good brand though...

    don't buy a 64mb card if you can help it...

    a lot of today's games are requiring 128mb cards for high res textures... these textures take up more than 64mb of RAM... so there is my argument :)

    Try looking around www.novatech.co.uk - I have always bought my PC stuff from there, great stuff, its cheap and fast delivery (Then again, I live 10 miles from its headquarters)

    GF4 Ti 4200 128MB
    http://www2.novatech.co.uk/novatech/Specpage/NOV-GF42TI
    £111.62

    GF4 Ti 4400 128MB
    http://www2.novatech.co.uk/novatech/Specpage/NOV-GF44TI
    £162.15

    GF4 Ti 4600 128MB (I have this card :p)
    http://www2.novatech.co.uk/novatech/Specpage/NOV-GF46TI
    £172.72

    Again, I recommend them. And I think £111 is the cheapest here for a 128MB GF4 Ti 4200 :p

    Edit: Fixed links, didn't work.
