I've got a budget of £150 for a graphics card aimed at gaming, any recommendations please?

Need to know motherboard? CPU? What GPU you are using now and very important what wattage power supply you have?

Motherboard Dell 04GJJT, Processor AMD Athlon(tm) II X4 630 Processor, GPU NVIDIA GeForce 310, Power standard 300w although I would upgrade this if necessary.

Sorry I have come back to this question sooner.

Anyway your PSU will almost certainly not be enough for a decent GPU upgrade and you should never buy a cheapo power supply as it can cause all sorts of problems. You should be looking for something like 500W power supply. Have a look here,ignoring the one for 11 quid of course.

Which would leave you £100- £120 perhaps for a graphics card. Perhaps a HD6870 or a GTX470.
