Ah, ok. Well then, here is probably the best card at that budget level. This should play ANY game with relative ease and good FPS.

It might not be the video card making the online games lag though. If an oppentent seems to be jumping around the screen, or standing stil, for example, this could be something to do with their or your internet connection being too slow to handle the dat fast enough.

Most online games have something caled a "Ping" chart, and this tells you how fast your internet connection is compared to everyone else. The higher, the worse, and the Lower, the better.

My friend is selling a nVIDIA geforce 6600 128mb for 50 quid!
Would this be a good deal, compared to my ATI RADEON9200SE?

6600 is an ok card. I don't know the exact prices but 50 aint bad.
U should be able to play the newest games with it, but prolly not with the best graphics settings.

The 6600 is a good GPU. I've used it, and it runs games quite well. What brand is the card?

Does your old video card a PCI slot of AGP?

You can get this:
MSI NX6600GT-VTD128 Geforce 6600GT 128MB 128-bit GDDR3 VIVO AGP 4X/8X Video Card - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127150

You'll see a big increase in performance. Runs very close to your budget but may go over a bit. For the performance you're getting, it's a great card.
