OK, it's not the newest graphics card in the world. It's not the fastest. But the GPU at its core was once AMD's very finest.  Net result? High end features like a high-bandwidth 256-bit memory bus and 2,304 of AMD's GCN graphics cores in 4.0 spec. For just £179, that's a recipe for a fantastic budget board.
