Hot Hot Hot!
This is almost as cheap as the 8800GT!
#2
I agree, very hot - the only thing that I would state is that the 9800GTX+ is supposed to be coming out "soon" and that's rumoured to be priced around US $230 - which should mean about £125-130 for us. It's at the 55mm core and so performance could be a substantial increase and less heat too...

But having said that, I'm sorely tempted to get this one anyway - seems to be priced around £170 anywhere else!

as same price really which is better the gtx or the 8600gt

I assume you mean the 8800GT as the 8600GT is much slower than either. The 9800GTX is generally noticeably faster than the 8800GT especially at higher resolutions and with AA/AF turned on.

Oh well, im fine with my 8800GT ATM, it plays all games at highest settings on my 17" monitorapart from Crysis which i used the Ultra high config which works great! :)

No, it means it'll be about £230 over here. Because of tax and everything else, the tech currency tends to be

$1 = £1

Cheap as chips :w00t:

Great deal. Heat & rep added.

Hardly, the cheapest 9800GTX on NewEgg is $197. The 9800GTX+ is supposed to be ~$30 more than the 9800GT which equates to ~£20 more. We’ll have to wait and see though as it might depend on supply and demand as well.

Hi all,

I noticed this afternoon that they are also selling a 512MB XFX 9800 GTX XT for £129.23, notice the XT on the end....quicker that a stock 9800GTX. This card is around £200 on other sites, however with the release of the new ATI 4800 cards NVIDIA are slashing the price of the 9800 series. Keep an eye out over the next few weeks for big price drops on all flavours of the 9800 type cards!!!!!!
#10
Man, scan told me that they would have the XFX one in stock today, but they haven't!!

The drops down to £120-130 were the price drops. They were only bringing them down to 4850 level.

I'd expect the initial price of the GTX+ to be about 4870 level (£175), maybe dropping down a little to £150 if nvidia want to try and tempt people on price.
#12
think it should be pointed out that Nvidia has found ‘significant quantities’ of defective chips...

http://www.custompc.co.uk/news/602889/nvidia-in-financial-strife-as-it-confirms-significant-quantities-of-defective-chips.html

with the 4850 and 4870 on the market at excellent prices and reading the above article, I know which I'll be buying next month

It's only Laptop GPU's which are affected, but granted perhaps there'll be other issues with other chips.

I believe that these will be just fine, to be quite honest. In the past I've had better experience with Nvidia cards over the ATI cards - but then my last card was a 9600XT which just seemed unstable. My 6600GT is rock Solid... been using it for years... I think it's time for an upgrade!!!! ;-)

whats a decent cheap power supply that will run this card?

You'll need something that ideally has dual PCIe 6 pin power connectors as that's what the card requires. 400W should be fine if it's a good brand and you system isn't high end.
#16
This card won't beat a ATI 4850. You need atleast a GeForce 9800 GTX+ 738 MHz and a processor clock of 1836 MHz to beat the ATI 4850.

Hot deal either way cause it show how graphic card are going down in prices faster than it usual is.

The 9800GTX XT Version is clocked on the core at 740MHZ and on the shaders at 1850, also there's your CPU and not everyone has OC Quad cores like they use in the reviews so individual performance will varyfrom computer to computer.

Has any one seen a graphics card with the new displayport replacement for the DVI port
Would be ideal match for the Dell 27" monitor
#20
Hot deal if you want an nVidia card, especially compared to the price it used to be.

However, for 1p more delivered (£117.49) you can get an ATI 4850 from eBuyer which is quite a bit faster than this in most games.
#21
Hot but im still happy with my 8800GT which I paid 200 for at xmas :(
#22
This is cold, why buy this when you can have a better card for the same money ... like the ATi 4850!

I agree the 4850 smokes the 9800gtx. Still a good price considering the 8800gt was around the same a month ago.

Best your gonna get for the price is this mate:
http://www.ebuyer.com/product/127861

This is one heck of a PSU for less than £50, OCZ really have come up trumps since they entered the PSU market a few years ago. Their warranty and returns service is also the best you will ever get from any company on the market, if this fails (which rarely happens) they actually send you a new one out as they take the old one away, so no waiting for refurbishment or anything, you get a brand new unit!!

3 years on the warranty also is adequate for a PSU.

Please add something for a few pence to get free delivery, with this site you get free delivery on £50, so just buy something silly for a few pence, plenty to choose from if you look.

OCZ Stealth XStream 600W PSU - SLI Ready ATX2.2 12cm LED Fan
http://www.ebuyer.com/product/127861

Oh and these are very quiet also. The only other 600W(ish) PSU I would think comes close in the price range is the Corsair, but then agian that is £15 or so extra.

Please do not go and buy some cheap £35 job, they are just not up to the job, spend the extra and get this one, for bang for buck it can't be touched for both value and it's ultra high quality, not to mention OCZ's perfect customer service.

Not quite.

Ebuyer are selling 8800gt for £90 inc delivery.

Oh and ATI HD4850 is selling for around £117, also.

I guess it depends if you really must have an NVidia card or can go the ATI route. I for one dont like ATI (as I have had driver problems in the past), but if I were buying a new card today, I would get either the NVidia 8800gt (£90) or the ATI HD4850 (£117).
#28
ATI have sorted their dirver issues mate, or at tleast they had with the 3 series, if you were to ever go dual or more cards then ATI is really the only option as their drivers are absolutely perfect for this issue alone.

This new round of combat between the two could become a God send for us the consumer as we are sure to see prices hit rock bottom for mega high end cards.

I remember only a couple of years ago when high end cards were no less than £200 and could cost way way more for the top of the range. Now the max is £200 (or will be very soon).

Wicked times for those of you who love to game on their PC as these new cards are pretty much way ahead of what any console can touch.

You don't need a mega processor to enjoy these cards. Even a nice cheap P35 and a core 2 will give you great pleasure in playing games, if any bottlenecks do occur you will not really see them in real time. Most of the stats are for hard core peeps only.

FFS, (sorry for the pun), but I have to say, if anyone played games on their e2180 clocked to 3ghz with the 3870, then sold it to get the e8* series with the 4850 or even the 4870 then they must be real hard core gamers, and I mean hard core, to the fact that their gaming actually makes them a very good income!!! Or they have rich parents...:whistling: (And yes I know all about cache and it's benefits before anyone puts me down!!)

Yus mate, what board and processes are you currently running, as you may not even really need to upgrade at all. :thumbsup: Especially if you give this card a miss and rake at look at the ATI 4* series, which even the 4850 is slightly better, cheaper, and uses less power, which in turn you could buy a cheaper PSU in the form of this:
OCZ Stealth Xtream 500W PSU - 1x PCI-E 6/8pin, 2x SATA 12cm Fan
http://www.ebuyer.com/product/135159
£34.77
And this card:
PowerColor HD 4850 512MB GDDR3 Dual DVI HDTV Out PCI-E Graphics Card
http://www.ebuyer.com/product/146428
£117.49
Total for both is just over £152, which is cheaper than the above yet from this card you are getting better performance at a lower power ratio. If you wanted to keep the 600W PSU then go for it, as it will do you no harm at all having the extra 6 pin connector if it is needed at a later date, not forgetting the extra power.

Hope this helps.

Actually, most of the companies that do that send out refurbished units as the replacements.
#32
Ah well maybe they do, I will have to check up whether they give you a refurb or not. But in the past I am sure it was a new unit. But I also think they gave a 5 year warranty, which has now dropped to 3 years, but is still one of the best in the business.

Maybe they have changed their policy this year, I am not sure, but I know they did give a 5 year warranty last year as I bought the 500W unit, which is not your point but I thought I would bring that up also. :)

EDIT:

Ah right, different models get a 5 year warranty, and they do a swap warranty for up to 3 years, meaning you do not have to wait for your PSU to be repaired, they drop you one off the moment they take yours away. So yes maybe the ones they drop off are refurbs, which is not a bad thing, I used to build power tools and a refurb is really on par with a brand new unit. Probably better as it has been tested, so you know what is wrong with it. :)

So to cap it all off mate, OCZ's pwerswap warranty is the best in the business, no other company comes close in any way shape or form. (Unless it is a subisdy or over company of OCZ of course.)

Voted Cold. It's a good price for the card, but it doesn't mean people should buy it. If you have £117 to spend on a card then get the ATI 4850. It performs much better. If you can stretch to £185 then get the 4870.

What I did.

I got the HD 4870 for £185.64 delivered. Its an extremely capable card it got 13585 marks on 3DMARK06 right out of the box.

I will never buy another Nvidia card again, they are far too overpriced for what you get. Ok they are the best and most powerful but I would rather keep the extra £200 in my pocket and get as near as dammit performance levels.

Yes, Palit make a few - http://www.pcstats.com/articleview.cfm?articleID=2253

But what's the point ? Whether you connect with DVI or HDMI or DisplayPort doesn't make the blindest bit of difference - they're all lossless digital connections :)

Yus mate, what board and processes are you currently running, as you may not even really need to upgrade at all. :thumbsup:


im currently running a intel core 2 duo 4400 at 2.0ghz with 2gb ram

its a dell vostro machine so has a stock power supply at 300watts i think

the thing is i want to run cod4 on my 22" monitor in full screen smoothly, ive currently got an ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT which does run it in full screen but not smooth enough

i thought it was my processor that wasnt upto notch or is it the graphics card?

The processor is fine mate, but that card will struggle to play games at decent rates on full res on a 22"..

Also are you sure the Vostro has a fixed PSU? I thought Dells now use generic parts. Not 100% sure though but it is worth looking into it mate. I am sure someone on here could clarify it for you. If so then you should be able to just unscrew it and put in a new one.

{b}EDIT:[/b]

Ah I thought you said "STUCK" power supply lol. You actually said stock, so yeah I am sure it can be removed and the OCZ fitted in there no problems mate. But it would be better if you probably did a Google, or if someone can just confirm this.

An 8800GT Should run it smoothly, but seeing as the 9800GTX is so cheap, just uopgrade your PSU and get that
