I suppose you mean 50 pounds since it shows you are from the UK :D? Maybe the ATI 6570: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sapphire-11192-26-20G-6570-DDR3-Graphics/dp/B0062CHN5U/ref=sr_1_3?m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1337947584&sr=1-3

There aren't that many choices with this amount of money ~~;;.

i think what Pado recommended is the best one considering your price range. but i recommend not the saphire packing but the XFX or MSI packings.

My gpu has a clock of 810mhz, the saphire has a clock of 650mhz.
For more 2£ i would go for the GT-520

why not the saphire?

btw. how much RAM do you have?

its all about physics and quality. from personal experience the MSI Packing is famous for overclocking due to its build.

you should go for either GT520 or the ATI 6570. if i were you i would go for the GT520 because of Physx :P

An ATI 6570 is about twice faster than a Nvidia GT 520... aside from the 128-bit vs 64-bit memory interface, if you google up some review/bankmark charts >___
