    I would like to buy a new Graphics card, but I don't know much about which card and which make to go for.

    I only want to spend about £100 and I would like to be able to connect an LCD screen to it.

    I have looked around at prices and I can get the follwoing cards for my budget.

    Radeon 7500, 8500le, 9000, 9100, 9200
    Geforce MX440se, TI4200, Ti500, FX5200

    Apologies if I have made an error on any of the card names above.

    I think all the above are 8x AGP and they all have 128mb.

    Ideally I would really like a dual head card, but I've only got £100 so I don't know what I can get for the money.

    Any help or recommendations would be appreciated.

    Many thanks in advance.

    the fastest of the lot is going to be the gf4 ti 4200... followed by the 8500le/9100/9200 which are basically the same thing... so lets consider them to be the same... :)

    they should be dual head... I know the radeons are and the gf4 ti 4200 should be as well.. perhaps depends which one you get :)

    By duel head if you mean able to connect 2 moniters yes the Ti4200 128mb 8x is has both a dvi and a crt with a crt/dvi converter well MSI offers that on their cards ;)

    And for the price its hard to beat the Ti4200 imho

    Many thanks, I think the Ti4200 is the one I'll go for.
