Well this is where my love affair with ATI started, bit of a budget user i was using onboard until i picked up a HD Radeon 3850 256MB for £20…

Well what can i say but WOW!

This little card changed my gaming life completely, since then ive looked into the HD 3000 series a lot. Wasnt long after that, that i got a HIS HD 3850 512MB Ltd Edition for £30.. and yet again WOW! Amazing!

All in all a love affair was started with these cards and ive got versions in different machines, but i couldnt recommend a better card for a budget builder.. It will be the best £30 you have ever spent..
