The ultimate, yet affordable, graphic card list
As the world of gaming continually strives for the best graphics and power-intensive features, so too do graphic card companies attempting to keep up with gaming demand. We look into some excellent performance graphics cards available at competitive prices.
AMD Radeon HD 5770
This graphics card, which can be picked up for a modest £100 at most online retailers, is ideal for gamers on a budget. It offers fantastic performance at average resolutions such as 1680 x 1050, and also multi-screen technology for the decadent gamers upon us.
Nvidia GeForce GTS 450
The Nvidia GTS 450 graphic card can be obtained online for an average price of £85. An all-purpose, no-thrills graphics card, it offers gamers an affordable option for most gaming needs. Compared to older-gen graphics cards, you’ll find that games improve dramatically upon installation. Whilst it’s true that there are better, faster cards on the market, for its affordable price tag you simply can’t go wrong.
AMD Radeon HD 5850
Slightly more expensive at £140, the AMD HD 5850 offers gamers a far more crystal performance than the previous two mentioned, though the increase in price tag is a direct offshoot of this. It is by no means a top of the range card by any standards, but it does offer features on par with many of the higher-range, more expensive graphics cards on the market today.
Nvidia GeForce GTX 470
With the highest price tag on our list, the Nvidia GeForece GTX 470 can be purchased online for an average price of £160. The card runs at a native resolution of 1680 x 1050, placing this graphic card ahead of many of its peers and competitors on the market today at this price range.
