Your not gonna get much for that money mate sadly but it wont be pants, I'll put it that way..

If you could stretch another £50, you could have one of the cards I have, a HIS X1950 XT (which I'd assume overclocks lovely to a XTX Spec'd model and you save £70 doing it ) worth a shot

Here's a link:

Oh and they are expensive, which isnt good. I'd have a search around

Honest opinion here is, if you've got a decent and I mean decent, CPU, memory etc, then go for it if you can afford it and want Nvidia products, if not, wait till ATI's model hits the streets and go from there.. Better to have a bit of choice rather than none

If you havent got a decent upto date ish system, dont bother, spend the money on upgrading the CPU, memory and motherboard and then buy the card, you'll notice so much more of a performance increase.
Oh and you might want to consider a decent PSU too. A cheap PSU will die under the load thats required to run these things. They are huge... Oh not to mention making sure you've a big enough case too

What is the model mate? Also I hate to point out, but on that card, you'll need TWO PCI-Express connectors to power the damn thing... Its a monstor!! But ALSO check the width of your case, otherwise you might not be able to fit it in the case and that will annoy you
