  • Gigabyte 7600GT 256MB

    Our second sub-£150 graphics card performed well and remained silent, even under full load.

    £120 inc VAT

    Score - 8 out of 10

  • Gainward 7900GS Golden Sample

    We tested four sub-£150 graphics cards. The first, the Gainward 7900GS Golden Sample, packs some serious speed.

  • Connect3D ATI Radeon X1900 XT 256MB

    ATI's mid-range graphics cards haven't always produced the goods, but this X1900 XT is a real sensation.

  • Sapphire Radeon X1650 Pro 256MB

    Back in the day, a sub-£100 graphics card was a sure sign you were scraping the bottom of the gaming barrel – but you get much more for your money nowadays.

  • PNY Verto GeForce 7600GS AGP8X

    There are plenty of users out there who have yet to make the transition from trusty old AGP to PCI Express. Fortunately, nVidia hasn't given up on AGP just yet.

    £110 inc VAT

  • Sapphire X1600 Pro HDMI

    This is the first time we've seen a graphics card that supports HDMI. So what's the difference?

    £95 inc VAT

  • Enermax Galaxy EGA1000EWL

    For typical users, a 450W power supply unit will offer more than enough oomph, but some of us have more demanding needs.

    £235 inc VAT

    Score - 9 out of 10

  • Sapphire Radeon X1950 XTX

    The X1950 XTX has a large number of similarities to its predecessor, the X1900 XTX. However, there are a few novel features.

    £310 inc VAT

  • FSP Booster X3

    Today's graphics cards consume increasingly preposterous amounts of power. The need to relieve the load on your beleaguered power supply unit is greater than ever.

    £65 inc VAT

  • Asus EN7600GS Top Silent

    With power and frame rates flying through the roof over the past couple of years, cards have given games programmers the means to conjure up death-defying graphics.

    £102 inc VAT

  • XFX GeForce 7950 GX2 Extreme Edition

    On the face of it, £470 for a graphics chip doesn't seem the best of deals. But what if that money bought not one but two chips?

    £470 inc VAT

  • Asus Ageia PhysX P1

    We are approaching the third stage in the evolution of computer graphics – possibly.

    £200 inc VAT

    Score - 8 out of 10

  • Sapphire Radeon X1800 GTO

    The X1800 GTO isn't a brand-new chip, but the competitive pricing introduced by ATI and Sapphire make this the best deal on the market.

    £142 inc VAT

  • AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core 5000+ & FX-62

    While Intel continues to pop out sockets and processors on an almost daily basis, AMD has been more circumspect in revamping its range.

    £500 inc VAT

    Score - 8 out of 10

  • Asus EN7900GTX/2DHT

    Half a grand buys you a graphics card that's only slightly faster than the X1900 XTX, despite that card being more than £100 cheaper.

    £500 inc VAT

    Score - 7 out of 10

  • MSI NX7900GT-T2D56E

    The 7900 GTX may be a powerful gaming card, but its £500 asking price is eyewatering. The 7900 GT is a far more enticing prospect.

    £234 inc VAT

    Score - 8 out of 10

  • MSI NX7600GS-T2D256EH

    The chip in this card may sound familiar to those who read June's 7600 GT review. In terms of basic architecture, the 7600 GS and 7600 GT are identical, but there are…

  • EVGA e-GeForce 7600 GT

    Drooling over a £300 or £400 graphics card is all very well, but most of us don't want to spend that much. The sub-£200 cards are where the real action lies.

    £148 inc VAT

  • Sapphire X1900 XTX

    The sceptical customer might expect the X1900 XTX, which follows closely on the heels of the X1800 series, to be little more than a more refined retread of a familiar…
