Need a gpu that can handle games on high detail levels, no lagging.

At a quick glance, I just noticed this for 65 (inc 5 P&P) was this: XFX Radeon HD 5750 - Graphics adapter - Radeon HD 5750 - PCI Express 2.0 x16 - 1 GB GDDR5 - DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort

If you really want a card that can run everything on high spec with no lag, this should do the job for most games, but for the full effect, I'd recommend a Radeon HD 6870, which could be around 40 over your budget.

"high detail levels, no lagging" depends entirely on your resolution. You'll need a much faster card for 1920x1080 than you will for 800x600. If you have a Full HD monitor, then there's no card at 80 that will suffice.

I think the AMD 5770/6770 are about 80, and are a good bet. 6850's can be had around 100 and the 6870 about 130 though, and are much better.

For 1920x1080 resolution a HD6870 will handle any game on maximum settings apart from Battlefield 3 and The Witcher 2 with Ubersampling. Source: Own one and have both games.

For 80 a HD6770 is the best you will get which is fine for 1280x1024, Source: My friend has one and plays at that resolution.

got an XFX 6770 850m 1gb ddr5 dp hdmi dual dvi pcie graphics card for 74 last week, running everything at 1440 x 900 w/s with full detail, no lag, really pleased with it. No VGA output though, so i needed to buy a DVI(A)-VGA adapter.

Gtx 550 asus slightly over budget but really worth it

try the gt 640, will run most new games on highest settings, and very taxing games on medium.

Go for a second hand card off ebay

This, everytime.
VTX3D AMD Radeon HD7750 1GB Graphics Card (DDR5, 128-Bit, HDMI, DVI, PCI-Express, DirectX 11.0 Support, AMD 28nm GCN Architecture)

Fast card, and with GDDR5 ram, and it doesn't consume a huge amount of power either.

Wrong. I'm running a sapphire 6870 at 1080p with battlefield 3 maxed out at 30-40 fps. Works like a charm for every game on the market. There could be a chance your pc is bottle necking the card.

For gaming AMD only if you are on tight budget. Overall, especially if you want to do some HD video editing - NVidia 5 series. If you are looking into GTX 550 Ti make sure its ASUS DirectCU version, not some basic one as they tend to get loud with cheapo fans. A bit hot too..

The AMD radeon HD7770 Is a good little card which is able to run battlefield 3 on medium/high settings, if you can find one on sale it would be around 80. But if you wanted it now it is currently 99

To be honest you won't be looking at new cards. Instead look at second hand cards like GTX 480's and or GTX570's. I picked up a HD4890 1Gb for 60 6 months ago so a decent card isn't too expensive...

I would recommend using this website to compare each graphics card :)
Hope it helps

Yes like mentioned use a comparison site but try to keep to the newest gen GTX600's or HD7000's. My 7850 can trounce a 6850\70 just like how a gtx660ti is a mile ahead of a GTX560ti. If I was you I'd look at a HD7750 or a GTX650 both are in the 80 pound range and are far superior to the equivalent models they replace.

I see a nice little card called a 7790. Now if that is what I think it is that's a pretty useful power efficient card, the 7770, with some added sparkle dust and twinkly pixel pusher juice added. I would say for a full HD screen you are looking at something as fast as a 6850 for less money and using a lot less power.
Thinking of getting one myself except I really want a 7850 1GB. They are the business. Worth the extra money .
You take care now.
