X800XL. That's right at 200GBP though and if you want to spend less then the 6600GT.

Giving your full system specs would help though. It would also be useful to know the PSU make and rating.

PSU specs would really help here... It's pretty important (check out the PSU guide in the PSU section).

If the PSU is decent, a 6600GT is recommended for your system.

yeah probably a min of 350w-400w quality brand such as Thermaltake or Antec will do fine.
Pritchard

Yeah sorry guys didnt really know what information to give, its a 400w PSU

The 6600Gt is a good card. The 800XL is one to get over the X800 Pro.

The info on the PSU is a bit weak though. Did you have a look at the PSU guide in the PSU section?
