With £80 your punching far below the current games market. I would wait until you have more and can get a card that will last a little while.

Yeah, save your Money, £80 won't get you very far, 1300s aren't good at all.

a £115 ati sapphire x800gto2 256meg will allow playing in medium everything in PR, high in vBF2. but then you have to make sure you have a decent power supply too, something like a zoostorm 500w (£40 from microdirect)

theres a cheap x1950pro 512meg card on ebuyer (gecube?) for £140, but you'll also need a very good power supply like a Hiper 580w £60 to make sure you have enough power and system is stable with everything else attached.

£80 budget falls between a card that can't play games, to not enough to play PR in medium graphics with a decent fps
