Got an Abit NF7-s motherboard and just bought the Gainward 7600GT Golden Sample to go with it. Works a treat !!!

That was the best card I could go for without changing my PSU and it was a good price to !!

Any of those ATI's should work OK but the only thing to do is check the rating on your PSU as the ATI are quite gutsy with power.

I would say get the cheapest x1950pro from OCUK you can with your spec. Best bang for buck you can get at present for an older AGP system IMHO.

Possible even an x1950gt if ocuk do them :)

The x1950 is your best bet but I think it needs a PCI-E power lead, I think it might come with an adapter but I'm not 100%. Otherwise, go for the 7600GT as above (any else notice these are no longer on sale here? Weird coz I only ordered one on Saturday).

Yup, good card :)

It 'should' come with a 6 pin PCI-E connector. I have one spare if you need one however. (actually i have 2 spare).

Hi, please could you let me know if the HIS X1950 Pro is fairly quiet.
I have been reading that there are some over heating issues with the 1950 cards. Has anyone come across this with their cards?

Cheers, PeterT

Yeah those HIS x1950pro's are quiet, they good coolers those, there was a huge issue with HIS cards borking, but they have all been replaced now by a newer version (version 2) so should be fine. :)
