First off i wasnt sure what forum to post this in so opted for here
Ok heres the situation, back in october i built a new machine, now a few weeks back it packed up, shipped the pats back to ebuyer for test as its still in warrenty and it was found that both my cpu and Graphics card were faulty, was informed that my other parts would be returned to me and that the faulty good would be replaced, i indeed had my parts returned but after 2 weeks of waiting no replacement parts... gave them a ring and it turne dout there was a system error (dont you hate those.....) but it also turns out that theres no direct replacement for what i had so i would be refunded..
so now here i am with an oppotunity to upgrade once again but am in a bit of a quandry as to whats best to get and was just after some other opinions.
i am replacing:
AMD Phenom X4 9750 2.4GHz Socket AM2+
Gecube HD 3850 512MB GDDR3 Dual DVI HDTV Out PCI-E
Im almost certainly going to be replacing the 9750 with a 9950 but when it comes to the graphics card im yet to fully decide...
I very very very rarely go under £125 for a graphics card, the post above looks like a very good solution.
Personally I'm a big fan of the nvidia cards, in particular the BFG ones. Had mine about a year and it's still blisteringly quick!! (I did pay £200 odd for it though)
Depends on how long before you upgrade again I guess, I tend to go with a couple of years with a £600/£700 budget every two years.
