Hey Data,

I finally come into some money to replace my card and the Radeon ones been discontinued  :Head-Slap:

Any suggestions on alternatives, I'm seeing this one which is a tad more expensive by around £20:

I'm open to any other suggestions you might have before committing though as the on-board graphics have served me well so far.

Yes they have since released the 5 series cards but they are only a little bit faster, and I mean a little.

I did find this RX 460 on Amazon at a reduced price, it looks pretty good to me, no it's not going to break any records but it's way superior to your on-board. Today, right now, it's £114.

Good luck fitting the card DD, I think that card doesn't need to power connector so just keep the floating connector/cable away from any components.

It shouldn't need to power connector because these newer cards take a lot less power.

Thanks Data, I already knew I didn't need the power connector but never hurts to have confirmation  ;)

I'm all set up, and everything looks sooooooooooooo much crisper again phew
