I never wanted to be that guy who posts a 'Wot graphics card' thread but I've reached a point where I need a new one and I don't know what I'm doing. I used to know a bit bout graphics cards when it was bigger numbers = better cards but now I've got no clue.|
I've currently got a Rdeon HD 5700 1GB DDR5 card which I've understood as OKish but not great. It's mostly felt like the graphics card is the main bottleneck (Phenom II processor, 16gb DDR3 RAM) s i want to upgrade. The funny part is I don't want to spend more than £150 ish.
What am I looking at? I tried reading some of the DF articles on this very subject but understand about 25% of the text. One of my main concerns is compataiblity with the MB. I thought a PCI socket was a PCI socket but that doesn't seem to be the case anymore!
(Also, surprised there isn't an 'official' thread for this sort of thing, seems to get asked a lot)

My own slice of the internet is here: http://www.maulsquad.com - it isn't very good.
