Judging by you have a Pentium D, i'd say your PSU isnt going to be up to much (even a high quality 400w I wouldn't really recommend to run a HD3850).

However, you can get a decent PSU and an ATI HD3850 and still be in budget :)

Is your motherboard is pci-e compatible? If not you'll have to factor that into you budget

That's a pretty important point here tbh, if he goes through all the trouble of buying a PSU and card, then he tries to fit it in the slot "damn, won't fit"... :mad:

Cheers for all the advice guys, sorry for slow reply though, I've been away from home. :(

Stupid question, but how do I check if i have pci-e slots? I've tried Dxdiag, but that's about it...
+I now have a 600w power supply.

Open the case and see if you have a slot that's bigger than the rest. Picture I found on google;
black one is a PCI-E slot.

I have one of those slots. :)
So what card would you guys reccomend me now, since the price drops. Or should I wait for the 9800 series?

Or go for a new processor first?

ATI HD3850 or 8800 GT, a new processor wouldn't hurt hurt :p. I belive it's £110 for a C2D 2.4 GHz and the card would be £120 which pushed you over budget, after that you would also need a PSU. You could shave £40-60 of the GPU though.

You also have to watch the CPU socket, see which pin it is and fsb.

Ok, I might buy new cpu as well then.
Is there a big differance between the GT and GTS series?

Here's a good comparison;
