Need to replace the above but having trouble locating one apart from used ones! Can anyone recommend a replacement?

If you don't mind me asking, why do you want to replace like-for-like? The 8800GTX is a very old card (2006 from the top of my head). There are far superior cards available today that you should be able to replace it with.

Before selecting a graphics car you need to check that your PSU is up to the task for the new one.

Having re-read your post, I see I misunderstood what you said. If you're looking for a replacement then anything from a GTX 650 from the Nvidia range or a Radeon HD 7750 from the AMD range will be an improvement. What is your budget?

You may be able to get another card that is an update on that one but it will mean buying one similar to the ones D@ve has mentioned.

That card was a really good card for it's time and I happen to still have one as a spare, why not replace with another second hand one if they are cheep enough.
