Graphics Card Replacement Suggestions



I have decided that I want to upgrade my poor old graphics card, my computer specs can be seen in my signature.

What sort of card can you suggest that is a big improvement on my current card. My budget is around £140, I have been suggested an ATI 9600 Saphire, but I haven't read any Pc magazines for ages and have no idea what's good at a good price these days.

Any help/suggestions are appreciated.

But, it might not be as reliable as the 9600 in the future. Considering the fact that the FX cards aren't the best DX 9 cards.

Now, like CoatHanger007 said, the FX5700 Ultra is a great card. I would, however, recommend the 9500-9600-9700 series of ATi Radeon cards. They range in price, but it's all pretty mid-range. That said, I would recommend, out of all of then, the ATi Radeon 9700pro. High end performance, mid range price. :)
On the bright side. Anything in your price range will be a big improvement over your old card so you can't go wrong.

I'd go for the 9600 PRO or if you shop around and get lucky you might just find a 9700 PRO close enough to your price range to be acceptable.

if you have still to buy a product yet... 9600pro/9600XT or a 5700ultra are all good... the latter 2 may still retail higher than your budget but the 9600pro is still a good buy (it oc's well)
