at that price, I might get two!
#2
Good price
#3
Not a bad price for 8800 Ultra but suddenly the Playstation 3 looks like a bargain.
#4
I am looking for a good PCIe card for about £50, this one just over my price range, any ideas for a £50 card?
#5
No offence, but how anyone can put 'only' next to a £450 video card for playing games is beyond me.

Probably not worth it for most people admittedly...

Quoting from the review:

"We try to point out the downsides of the best products out there, as well as the niche uses for which otherwise disappointing hardware might shine. So often our job is about balance and temperance. But not this time:

The NVIDIA GeForce 8800 Ultra is an utter waste of money.

We are all for higher performance, and we don't mind higher prices. But it is ridiculous to charge an exorbitant amount of money for something that doesn't offer any benefit over a product already on the market. $830 isn't the issue. In fact, we would love to see a graphics card worth $830. The 8800 Ultra just isn't it. "

:p:p:p

If you HAD to get one of these cards, you could get it delivered from USA for less than £400...

Not much that's *good* for £50, would recommend the £60-£70 mark for disproportionate performance improvements.

So:

7600GS http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/110045 £43.31 inc p+p and £10 google discount. Scores 624.7
7600GT http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/106578 £59.51 inc p+p Scores 917.6 = 47% faster for 37% more money, which is a good deal in computing terms

OR, a good buy is a DirectX 10 card, which will play next-gen Directx10 games

about £45 for an 8500 GT http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/126987

It will perform about the same as the 7600GS for DirectX9 (maybe 10% slower), but TBH is probably not fast enough for next gen.

8600GT http://www.custompcwarehouse.co.uk/acatalog/Online_Catalogue_Graphics_Cards_PCX_24.html
XPERT VISION 256MB GeForce 8600GT TV/2xDVI PCI-E RETAIL £72 Will be a bit better (about 10%) than the 7600GT, and is DirectX10

$800 is about the retail price for the ultra. For insured shipping, which is a necessity, youre looking at about £40-50. 17.5% + other import duties, it will cost you much more than buying from the UK.
#14
Excuse me, yes I did. You can get it for $600 in the states at certain retailers, which is around £300. That said, with the insured shipping, it would make it around about the same price. Damn rip off Britain!!
#15
Latest edition of Custom PC tested an 8800 Ultra and concluded it was a waste of money. Better off saving a £100 and getting an 8800 GTX I think they said.
#16
Even more annoying is the fact I cant find the retailer where I found it for $600 :(
#17
I know its a rip off and all but its still a good price for the UK, voted hot to get it positive again! :)
#18
Actually it isn't a good price 8800 GTX cheapest I have found is £300. And even that is too much they need to be £200 or less.
#19
the people that would need this card are people who are running monster resolutions or dual or triple setups

not really for the average gamer
#20
tbh, I think that even the 7900GS/X1950pro will probably stay in the scene for many years to come. The 8000 and ati's hd series gonna take a while for it to take over pc gaming. I'll probably buy DX10 card in let's say 4 years time, when the 8800GTX costs £150
