Can any recomend any cheap graphics cards and where to get them in the UK. It needs to have vista RC1 drivers available for it at the moment. It only has to last 6 months or so and play my current games which all used to run on an ATI Radeon 9250 with 128mb of RAM (I know thats bad). My motherboard has a PCI E slot and several spare PCI slots but it doesn't have an AGP slot.

Thanks for any help and let me know if ive left out any important information.

hm.. Im not to sure on the "low end" cards. But maybe something like the ATI x1300 ore the Nvidia 7300 GS, If you want to spend a little more maybe the 7300 GT. But like I said, I know more about the middle to high end cards. And I am just woundering, do you play alot of games? If you do and wants to play some of the newer games then save some more money and buy a 7600 GT.

I play a reasonable amount of games but im planning to wait untill DirectX 10 cards come out before i spend too much money.

I've found the Nvidia Geforce 7300LE or the ATI Radeon X1300, which one of those would be the best? (both have 256Mb of memory)
