would have been a superb price 1 month ago

unfortunately the 8800gt (overclocked versions) at £180 ish are within a wisker performance wise ...

for 90 pounds less ...

Still a very good price considering the GT is tough to find & is currently going for £180
#3
Paid £323 for mine last week :(

The GT's whilst best for money, will not play Crysis at any higher than 1280x1024 resolution. Whilst thats the maximum for most who use a TFT monitor, it is no way near the limit of a CRT monitor. My GTX allows me to run Crysis at 1600x1200 with ease.

As far as GTX's go this is a hot deal.

Im personally still waiting for the brand new 8800gts which I think will be on par with today's gtx.

Chef thats a bit pessimistic ...

I was running at 1300x something all settings to HIGH other than particles on my X1900XT which is way slower than a GT

Paid £145 for my 8800gt, and all i can say is " what a card"
my 3dmark06 score went from 6500 with a pair of 7900gt's to 11696 with 1 8800gt.
Dont blow £300 for a GTX when its about 10% better than a £145 GT
#7
Cold. This is a REALLY bad time to buy a GTX or GTS. Dont blow £270 on this now!!

Show me a screenshot of Crysis at 1600x1200 on full settings with playable FPS with a GT then. I'm not saying its a great card, it is. But its not for everyone.

16x12 are crazy settings....anyone who plays games at those settings on high with AA etc.....would be expected to spend inthe £300 region.

The GT is a great value card...not for the extremists though

Y'know, top-end gaming is an interesting thing, financially. It's obviously not cheap, but if you think about it, it's not really that expensive, either.

Say, for example, you spend £350 on the fastest card available. Twelve months later, there's going to be a refresh that's going to run about 10% faster than it, but it still will be top-end gear that no game will come close to demanding the full power of. It will, by that point, have lost around £100 of its value, Skip on another year and the new line of cards is being released, and it's probably lose £150-£200 of its value. So, 2 years of top-end gaming for about £100 a year. £8.33 a month. that's nothing when you compare it to your ISP or probably even your electricity bills.

Or you can sell your top-end card when the refresh comes out. Upgrade, and you'll probably only cost yourself around £50 a year.

I probably have tweaked the figures here to make things a bit more optimistic than reality has it, but I'm probably not far off, and the point still stands. And although it is still cheaper to go with mid or low hardware, probably, the money difference really isn't all that significant. Especially not as significant as the differene between £320 and £80 would seem.

Not sure why this is being voted cold. For a GTX card this is a hot price at the moment. If you want to compare the price of one card that arguably runs only 10% slower but is maybe £80 cheaper or wait 6-12 months and this same card will be cheaper then by allmeans, but it doesn't stop this card at this price being a hot deal today. :thumbsup:

This deal was a mis-price and has expired. However, it was a seriously good price for what was on offer. It was an overclocked card with enhanced cooling which obviously widens the gap in performance between the average GTX and the average GT. Shouldn't have been voted cold as it is the best price you would have gotten it for.

In response to dxx - your figures are way off. You need to upgrade more than a graphics card every few years if you're to keep up with 'top-end-gaming'. Maybe include the cost of ram, cpu and eventually everything else and you'll get your total monthly costs. PC gaming is NOT cheap! :p
