    I have around £200 to spend and I wanted to get a new graphics card.

    I was thinking of the Nvidia GTX 670 but I don't really know much about graphics cards so I need you guys advice.

    Are there any graphics card better than the 670 for around the same price? I only know about Nvidia cards, I have no clue on radeon.

    Is the 660 ti better?

    R9 280x, runs the same architecture as the 7950 and 7970, but will run better price/performance. Its starting price is $299 here, which is about 185 pounds, but I'm guessing their starting price is higher over there.

    GTX 600 series is old, buying the most current generation usually is the best price/performance, most of the time anyway. In terms of performance it goes 660, 660 ti, 670, 680. Then fitting in AMD, it goes 660, 7870, 660 ti, 7950, 670, 7970, 680. For the current series it seems about 760, R9 270X, 770, R9 280X, 780, R9 290X, GTX Titan.

    It was just released but already is dominating the Nvidia competition right now, Nvidia cards are extremely expensive with the new AMD release, and unless they drop their prices, AMD will be the #1 choice for now.

    With the R9 280X going for $300 flat (even the special OC cards going for only $10-$20 more) and the GTX 770 still @ about $400, the R9 series is definitely the choice for you.

      Those are some banging numbers.

      My suggestion is a Voodoo 3. If you've really got the $$$$, pick up a Nvidia GeForce 2 Ti

        Nothing beats 16MB VRAM on AGP
