Right, after my laptop dieing after only 15 months, I had to quickly get an emergency thing. Found a Packard Bell iMedia A2620 for £320, so got that.

AMD Athlon II x3 @ 2.7ghz
3gb RAM
320gb HDD
nVidia 9200 integrated graphics

It's all lovely and great apart from the last bit.. Which isn't :p.

So basicly I'm looking at putting a new card in there when I have the money to. I was looking around and noticed that a 1gb HD4850 is better than a 512mb 9800gt but for the same price pretty much.

I'm just wondering if I can put an Ati card in a motherboard with integrated nVidia?

The 4850 is a good card, Ben has one and he seems to run everything fine. 2 others to look at would be the GTS250 - basically the same price and performance as the ATi and the 4870 - £10 more but a better card.

Ok thanks, I'll think about the 4870 :). £20 sounds like a good trade off for it looking at benchmarks :D.

Just got to find the right screen now, but not so important at this moment in time as it'll probably be Spring next year when I get it.

Well I'm not waiting that long for a new card, just the new screen :p.

Having to make by with an integrated nVidia 9200 at the moment, which as you can imagine isn't so fun :p

Jamie, if you can get the latest ATI cards you will be future proof. Or wait until Nvidia release their cards, ATI will respond with a price reduction on theirs. Better for consumer if competition is around.
