Default Graphics card-Budget under 100

As said before ive decided to go for the Sapphire Radeon 9600XT 256MB DDR. If any one can find me a beter one I would like to here about it. Check out this graphics card at http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/produ...duct_uid=55190. And this card must be able to play Half life 2 and doom 3

Cheers

Hi 99nasha, remember me?! http://www.pricegrabber.co.uk/search...=9800+pro&rd=1
Check out these beasts, you can get one for around 100. It'll outperform the 9600xt with ease. The other option is a nvidia 5900xt, given best budget buy by pcgamer. Don't worry too much about the ram, it's the clock speeds and general features that matter Doom and half life will run well on both.
New pc was ordered saturday, ill tell you when i get it...

its a very nice gpu #1 however the 256mb does not increase speed that much if you still have 128-bit gpu i recomend the 9700-pro it's 128mb but is a 256-bit. it is like $170 dollars but i don't know the euro conversion, it may be a bit out of your price range(like 5-10 euros).

I think 1.87 quid= $100 so its less the 100 quid.
