    Looking around for a gaming graphics card for my new built computer as currently using the built in graphics in the CPU at the moment,

    Got around £100-£150 to spend on the right card and deal.

    Thanks.

    This one has a custom cooler Zalman VF3000. So quieter than stock. Best version out there.

    Cheers

    Oh not bad, don't know much about cards really, just what people tell me and what i read online, just want a decent card so i can play some of the new games on it, recently built a new computer for myself except adding a graphics card, using the one built in on the CPU at the moment which is ok just not that great, lags quite bad on crysis on the fps.

    Would it play all the latest games out for PC now, also when i look at the graphics card out there and you see the number next to them, for example the GTX650, does that mean it is better than the GTX480 as it is a higher number?.

    Tomxlisa let me know because if you don't take the card I might do a swap with mraerosmith.

    Cheers

    Hmm quite confusing all this buying a graphics card lark isn't it, could see the 650 on there but not the 480 to compare it with, would you say the 480 is a more powerful card then?.

    Yeah i see that now, strange though isn't it as the GPU frequency and memory frequency are quicker than the 480?.

    Not related. Freq and memory has little to do.

    Oh right, so there is more to a graphics card than the frequency and memory so even though that is higher than the 480, the 480 still is a more powerful card?.

    Oh right okay, well thanks for all your info, i am guessing this 480 card of yours doesn't have the heat problems then and the noise issues, if not that is all good, and it will play the latest games right, if not i'd rather maybe spend another £100 or so on getting a card which is future proof?.
