Hello,

My graphics card has packed up for my main PC and want to buy a new one so I can play Rift MMO and WOW Cataclysm at max settings without braking the bank (200 pounds max preferably less). My old graphics card was nVidia GeForce 8800 GTX.

Below is my current PC spec

Dell XPS 420 2 years old
Q6600 2.4 Ghz quad core
2 Gig Memory
http://www.trustedreviews.com/pcs/review/2008/01/11/Dell-XPS-420/p1

The reason that I do not want to spend too much money is because I want to upgrade to a Cryo Nemesis when I have saved up enough money http://www.cryopc.co.uk/cryo_nemesis.htm

Thanks in advance for any help
