Great card for the price and ideal for the 'majority of gamers'. Serious gamer? maybe not but it can certainly hold it's own and play all games at a reasonable rate at lower res.

never understood why people have to go for the biggest and best GPU for gaming. I can play Skyrim on High with my GTX 460 and play BF3 on reasonable settings also.

Because if you aren't making use of the benefits of a pc, you would be better off with a console :p

Still, good for the price, but marketing blurbs suck.

Lol - too late, was gonna say very much not "Ideal for the serious computer gamer"... That was untrue even when the card was launched.

Way better to save the extra £30 for a 750 Ti which is bang up to date, much more powerful and extremely frugal on electricity whether you're gaming or not.

Edit: As pointed out "much more powerful" is an exaggeration, sorry.

Nobody has said its the best card. we could all suggest cards that are better. This deal is a great price considering it can be picked up for around £100. As mentioned above its ideal for people on a budget. You commenting on cards that cost more is totally pointless.

The saying "should have gone to specsavers" come to mind, or maybe you need to go back to school for reading lessons.
Please show me in the blurb for the card where it mentions anything about gamers on a budget.

I understand - I really do - if you just don't have the money then fair enough, buy what you can afford.

However, there's a huge problem with mid-range cards just the same as there's a problem with high-end cards - they're not worth the money! The makers and marketers *know this* but they use whatever tactics they can to sell to every level of buyer. Which is OK - businesses that don't do that get beaten by businesses that do. It's up to people like me to point this out occasionally.

The prices of mid (and high) range cards don't reflect value. For me, HUKD is about several things including value, education and, yes, best price for a specific product.

Budget was referring to making a budget gaming machine and as for serious gamer this could apply for someone serious about games? e.g. serious Starcraft 1 gamer? :O Well you could say people have different opinions on what is a serious gamer :{

Well there are people who play on multiple screens, 4k screen, whatever which one of these or similar graphics card will struggle. Also some people like ultra high rather than high and want better than reasonable settings ;)

P.s. Most people go for mid high to high end not the top end(biggest/best) as you're suggesting.

There isn't really much performance difference between a 650ti and 750ti, both cards actually have exactly the same memory bandwidth. This 650ti is in a better price/performance spot. If you are going to pay £100 for a 750ti you might as well pay £120 for a 270x and get a card that is twice as fast.

Trying to wriggle out what you said in your previous post? Nowhere in that post was anything about a budget gaming machine, you said budget gamer which is the opposite end to a serious gamer, not all serious gamers buy the 780ti, 295x2 and the like(the 290 and 780 are the cards of choice or a slight step down from them) non it are the cards of choice but the 650ti is nowhere near a serious gamer card.

You can't have a serious sc1 gamer ;)

Since I have two old 720p LCD TV's at home even a R7 250x is enough to max out most games for me. Really depends on the resolution of your screens. One day I'll have to upgrade to a better GPU when I upgrade my TV's to 1080p or beyond. Anyway good find for people still using old 720p screens or gaming at resolutions of 1024x768 or 1360x768 since that's all their monitors/TV's can handle like mine.

Good argument. I've been under the impression the boost edition of this card is worth getting but the non-boost isn't.

It's only phrases like "Ideal for the serious computer gamer" being used so improperly that start me off - Seeing several counter arguments in the same thread add to the informativeness of the thread as a whole.

You can be a serious gamer with spending a fortune on hardware, usually people that throw £3000 into a gaming PC are usually trying to compensate for something or just looking for people to admire or feel jealous of them.

Some people seem so stuck up their **** (no offences)

Some people would love to be a "serious gamer" but your guys opinion on what makes a serious gamer is idiotic. I have played PC games since I was 4 but I've never had the money to get all this high end stuff and all that, does that make me a un serious gamer who belongs on console, no it doesn't. we can't all afford the best of the best and some of us are happy to play games on any settings as long as we have fun. It's a good deal for a decent card. End of discussion.

Sorry, I got a little annoyed at people saying how "serious gamers" have like top end machines when that's not the case, but I have calmed down now, sorry again :D

Don't get me wrong - I think this is a decent card, but I don't understand why the same card from MSI and Zotac that's been posted on here in the past few months at identical prices barely got lukewarm?

Different story if this was the 2GB or BOOST version.

I would be on this if it had been £50 - £60 though!

Old games.. get a current release and tell me how it performs. The serious gamer bit is daft. this will handle modern demanding releases at low/med in 1080p. if you wanna run something in 1080p with everything set to full then the only way is to buy an expensive card with the power to run it.

With regards to the "Serious Gamer" argument.

Surely it depends which "Game" the "Serious Gamer" is playing.

I believe that the serious CSS community is still alive and kicking & a card such as this would run CSS like a dream.

Funny discussion, I can see both sides of the argument, problem is caused by the marketing 'speak', its like most things, to get that extra 10% performance, you pay a big premium to distinguish from the good, same happens with car deals, you can get a really good VW spec'd up for half the price of the Audi made with pretty much the same components.

I've been on a DELL Inspiron for 7 years, I'm an 80's gamer, had C64/BBC Model B when they came out in early 80's, Elite Deadly is the first game due out in years that I'm considering buying, my son plays consoles but the games never really interested me on them, so just looking to buy a new PC ro run Elite Deadly as an enjoyable experience, whether to buy one or build one, was late 90's when I last built a PC!!! so I'm having the same debate with a PC, buy £1300 worth Dell Alienware or build my own/buy a custom build.

For £1300 you'd get more value for money with self build, also you could build a self build with specs of the Alienware for cheaper(got a link to the particular model you're looking at?).

Self build and gain the satisfaction of building it yourself. - This seems like a good card for the money for anyone concerned with cost/performance ratio.

I've just built a friend a well specced PC for £700 Intel 4670k and so on. its only Gtx 660 2gb and 8gb system ram. for another £600 I'd get 16gb ram and spend another £200 on the gfx. leaving £300 change for peripherals.
I wouldn't buy an alienware.
