ASUS, producer of top-quality graphic solutions, offers the new ASUS EN8800GS/HTDP graphic card. The ASUS EN8800GS/HTDP is the world's first overclocking version of the GeForce 8800GS chipset - allowing users to enjoy 8% improvements in gaming experiences. Additionally, this model comes equipped with the newest thermal solution - the uniquely designed Glaciator Fansink, which features quiet and efficient heat dissipation to enable stable performance. Furthermore, the integrated SmartDoctor feature will provide users with the option to overclock the Shader Clock for even better graphical performances.

With the EN8800GS/HTDP, gamers can expect core, shader, and memory clock performance boosts from 550MHz up to 600MHz, from 1375MHz up to 1700MHz, and from 800MHz up to 900MHz respectively. Such unprecedented performance upgrades help elevate the EN8800GS/HTDP's 3DMark06 score from 9571 to 10399 - an astounding 8% improvement in speed when compared to generic designed boards. Gamers can now experience the rush of superb gaming performances only with the ASUS EN8800GS/HTDP.

The ASUS EN8800GS Series utilizes the Glaciator Fansink that is specially designed to effectively dissipate heat away from the graphics card. Much like real-life glacial storms, the Glaciator Fansink can quickly transfer heat away from the GPU to help lower temperatures. Besides this extreme cooling capacity, it is also very quiet with noise levels of only 25dB - almost imperceptible in a quiet room, and catering to users who require maximum cooling without excessive fan rotation noise. The model also comes specially equipped with the Cross heatsink that also lowers the Power IC temperature by 15ºC on average for more stable power supply.

ASUS garners a world's first by providing an overclocking utility that is able to tweak the Shader Clock on GPUs with new SmartDoctor. With this application, users will be able to overclock the Shader Clock and Engine Clock independently for astonishing performance boosts without the hassles of rebooting or re-flashing their BIOS.

In line with the Rock Solid promise of quality from ASUS, the EN8800GS Series comes with several solutions to provide top-quality graphic performance. The temperature of the newly adopted DIP Spring Chokes is lower in comparison to traditional Toroidal Coil Chokes; while the Japan-made polymer capacitors lowers power loss to provide more stable quality. Therefore, users will be able to enjoy extreme performance and feel secure with uncompromising quality only with ASUS EN8800GS Series.

The ASUS EN8800GS Series also comes with the exclusive ASUS GamerOSD that unleashes the true power of ASUS' VGA cards. This feature is able to deliver GPU overclocking from onscreen displays during games - allowing users real-time performance upgrades when they require it. Additionally, it also provides users with the option to record live gaming action or live broadcasting over the Internet with ease.

Nice deal, voted hot.

The vostro doesnt have a 6pin power for graphics cards nor does it have any molex to use a convertor to attach a 6pin the power supply is also wired differently to a standard ATX psu so no upgrade there so you cant have a high powered card in the vostro. I bought one for the daugter and upgraded the ram to 4gig and looked to see if i could put a 2900pro i had in there was no way and the psu is a weak 325watt.

This card for anyone interested will destroy any 8600 series card and alot of others also i have to stop myself getting one as a spare as i already have 3 spare cards and will be havin a ati4870 at some point but voted hot as its a cheap high end card and a decent retailer.

Also dont forget £49.99 will det free delivery so get a cheap jump drive or some discs.

I used one of those and a Y spliiter connected to the Sata power connector that would normally be used for the 2nd optical drive

I run 4x 1gb ram, 2 HDDs the optical drive, a Creative X-FI card and a 7800GT off the stock psu in my dimension e520 and thats only the standard dell 305w

Apperently dell don't rate their psus for their peak wattage but rather their sustained output.

Not sure if it will handle the load of the 8800GS it's worth asking over at dells forums as there are people on there that would be able to give you an anwser.

i have the xfx version and it's excellent, this is a no brainer at this price especially as the xfx version is the noisy one!

you dont have the vostro 200 its the lowest spec of the lot it only has a couple of spare sata connectors and you are talking about a 7800gt i have the 7900gs in my medai pc and from what i know is it takes just over the 75watts that the pci-e gives without aux power i can run my gs without plugging in the power alright i wouldnt be able to run games but i can load windows and view the net and the 7800 and the 7900gs are basically the the same spec. Trust me when i tell you it wont run this card i also have its big brother the 8800gt512mb and they require a decent 450watt psu.

Dell also use the cheapest parts they can get and if a pc runs on a 300watt supply you can bet it needs most of that and stressing it with a powerful card will blow it up
#13
min £4.79 shipping (super saver) unless total over £50?
#14
Top find. Outstanding value. Instead of paying delivery, best to dd some blank discs or batteries or fans.
#15
or a modem (i happen to need one).
they did have an internal card reader for £5 but thats gone, dammit

this is a goood deal, makes my 8600GT for £36 look poor. it's what i was asking for a week ago!
for reference, next lowest price is around £65 from dabs

:oops: no patience me...

should have it in the morning to report back :thumbsup:
#17
hah it was you who just bought number 45. i'm checking out now, just deciding whether to use Google or Paypal..

edit: but i go super saver, i'm not flush enough to afford things next day :p

if it was anything but a GC it would be on super saver :p

want it NOW!!!! :viking:

lol
#19
these are not selling so fast, i reckon that's cos they're still a bit above cheap (you can get a Play Value ATI Radeon HD 2400Pro for £18), and those who think they need really fast are spending twice as much on 8800GTS or whatever http://hotukdeals.com/item/193793/bfg-geforce-8800gts-oc-640mb-hdcp-e/ .. still, i think this is very very good bang for buck for poor people who actually want a fast card. i doubt there is anything bettter value in the GC market for at least a few weeks :p
#20
Looks a good card. Would be interested to see how loud these are as some places say the fans a bit noisy - but there are a few different versions out there and what some people call noisy I would probably call just normal.
#21
it's supposed to be only 25dB but i'll see if i can find a test ..
yes i also care because i use my PC mainly for music listening not gaming.

edit:
uh oh. custom cooling solution uses 2 slots. watch out.
http://www.digital-daily.com/video/asus_en8800gs/print
that fan is quite large.. which bodes well for noise, but not for fit ..

sh*t i'm not sure this is going to fit in my system, i can't remember what's next to the pcie slot.
might have to change the heatsink :/
#22
Thats the TOP version - is it the same size?
#23
yes you're right this is the TOP http://www.ebuyer.com/product/142653 (nearly £100 and just 8% faster?!)
it looks like Asus use the same cooling on lots of their cards, so yes I think this is the same size:
http://www.asus.com/products.aspx?l1=2&l2=6&l3=442&l4=0&model=2047&modelmenu=2
the pictures are the same literally.

If you look at the reviews you’ll see that this card doesn’t consume much at all. According to TechPowerup the whole system with this card uses 172W maximum which is less than a HD 3850. I ran a HD 3850 with a 300W power supply with a weak 12V rail and had no problems.
172W AC is roughly 146W DC which almost any 300W power supply should handle. My parents have a Vostro 200 and it’s very efficient so provided you can get the SATA to PCIe 6 pin adapters I don’t see why this shouldn’t work in a Vostro 200.
#25
Any idea what ebuyer are like for taking items back - may just be a case of get it and see if it fits (and how noisy it turns out to be)
#26
i can't find if the fan speed is controllable or not.. if its a 2 wire, probably not, meaning it might be stuck at 12v, meaning it could be very loud. but asus are good i doubt they've done that. also, you can always put a resistor in or change the heatsink completely but thats a sh*g and money.
edit: reviews say its quiet, i reckon it'll be ok :)
#27
is this graphics card OK to use in a Dell vostro400?
Thanks

is this graphics card OK to use in a Dell vostro400?

Read my post above (No 25) which suggests it very likely will. The 400 has the correct 6 pin power adapter which the 200 lacks. Open up the case to double check.

Adding to Agharta's post, check the PSU rating - if it's 350w & above it would be definitely OK. I've heard people running a 8800GT on a 350w Dell PSU.
#30
So impressed with that price and the 8800GS reviews that I've bought one. Was hoping to get a 9600GT but these seem to good a deal to pass up.

Well I've not managed to blow mine up yet and it's been running with the 7800GT over a year.
Pretty sure its the same PSU as the vostro 200 as well, but check with the dell community first.

Not that I am bothered if this is the top edition or not for this price but...

http://www.ebuyer.com/product/142653 (top)
http://www.ebuyer.com/product/142652 (non-top)

The spec sheets are identical, as is the quoted clocks of 600/1700 and the fact both claim over 10k on 3dMark' 06 - according to the website on the TOP version should do that.

In addition several of the review I seen list it as EN8800GS/HTDP/TOP/384M (EN8800GS/HTDP/384M). Although on the website they are 2 distinct models it may jus tbe a locality thing.

Anyway at this price it still hot.. but for those of you disappointed if it turns up and its not the TOP edition then Ebuyer should take this back at there expense if your clocks are different to quoted.

I've got no interest in gaming. I just want to be able to watch HD stuff (from my hard drive). I've only got an Intel 1.67 GHz with 1 Gig RAM. I only have onboard graphics :)

Do I need this card, or will the cheapo one from play suffice for my needs? (http://www.play.com/PC/PCs/-/668/875/-/5973010/Play-Value-ATI-Radeon-HD-2400Pro-256MB-PCI-Express-x16-Graphics-Card/Product.html?searchtype=genre)

Check your PC does have the required slot to take a new graphics card.

Is it a multi core CPU?

Yes I'm pretty sure it does have the slot. Nope - single core :(

I had thought I need to upgrade but it's purely for HD that I need the oomph - the rest of the time the box just serves files. I was reading that the graphics stuff being farmed out to the GFX card could negate an upgrade.
#36
on the box its says you need a 400W PSU if that helps anyone out...

mines up and running on my 500w PSU :thumbsup:

Vista score went from 3.4 to 5.7 :-D dont mean much i know but was fun all the same... did have to move my harddrive up a slot as the card and the harddrive where clashing due to its length.... it did fit but it was very tight to get the power plug onto to the rear of the GC while the harddrive was in its orignal slot :thumbsup:
#37
Hi,how much bigger is it,than one PCI slot.What is the thickness of the card ie PCB to outer edge of the Fan,also same for the HS at back of the card?
Don't think the 88xx series helps out the CPU with HD decoding(or they didn't),85xx,86xx etc do(built into design).Also prob later series & some of the ATI cards.


Cheers BOB

All gone now, but you can pickup a Radeon 3850 for an extra £20 with free shipping - http://www.ebuyer.com/product/139617 - performance is similar.
#40
Hi,thanks for the info :thumbsup:,scaling from pics,looks like Fan sticks out from PCB board about 26mm & back HS 15mm.Might just have squeezed it in :) .Seems some peeps like 3850 512MB,just a liitle bit better.Prob due to 512MB.
Carry on looking :) ,for one to suit 400w PSU & D945 CPU.

Cheers BOB
