  • Sapphire Radeon X1950 Pro Ultimate

    The original Sapphire X1950 Pro was one of the better cards at this price level. So how does the firm follow that up? By producing the slightly enhanced X1950 Pro…

  • PNY GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB

    The PNY isn't going to be a stunner two years from now, but it's cheap enough that you can buy it for the strong framerates on current games. Then a couple of years…

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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.

  • BFG 8800 GTS OC 320MB PCIe

    At around £200, BFG Technologies' PCI Express board, the GeForce 8800 GTS OC, is on the pricey side (similar cards can cost £150), but it ships overclocked and…

  • MSI K9AGM2-FIH

    Ever since AMD bought ATI, we've been waiting to see what could be achieved by combining the minds of these two juggernauts. The first offering comes in the form of a…

  • Asus GeForce 8800 GTS HTDP 320MB

    Following on from the excellent PNY 320MB GeForce 8800 GTS card comes this even better version from Asus. Not only is it cheaper, but it comes with a free copy of…

  • Asus EN7900GS 256MB graphics card

    The 7900GS is solid but unspectacular – it was no match for the Sapphire X1950 Pro, for example.

    £136 inc VAT

  • Sapphire X1950 Pro

    Hot on the heels of the X1950 XTX comes the Sapphire X1950 Pro, which comfortably slots into the enthusiast sector of the market.

  • Gainward 7900GS Golden Sample

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

  • Gigabyte 7600GT 256MB

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

  • Gainward 7950GT Golden Sample

    A refreshed 7900GT, the 7950GT benefits from increased clock frequencies, especially on this Gainward Golden Sample version.

  • EVGA 7950 GX2 Super Clocked

    In the first of our three £251+ graphics card reviews, we look at the EVGA 7950 GX2 Super Clocked – in effect, two underclocked 7950GTs sandwiched together.

    £400 inc VAT

  • Gainward 7900GTX

    The 7900GTX is a more finely tuned card than the GX2, with a faster (single) GPU and onboard memory.
