As with most graphics card offers on Hotdeals, this one will probably freeze due to oposition from the ATI vs NVidia camp. But....
...this is actually a very good card for £110. I own both an Inno3D 8800GT and this HD3850 card. Sure, the 8800GT is the more powerful (and so is the HD3870) but I am really impressed by the 3850. I think it hits the right spot for both price and performance.
Here are the things I like about this GeCube version.
*Comes with an extremely effective and quiet dual slot cooler. This keeps the temps cool and allows for great overclocking (mine is currently oc'd to 877core/2100mem.
*Half Life EP2 Black Box edition download is included free. This sells for over £20 on ebay . Games included are HL2 EP2, Day of Defeat, Team Fortress 2, Portal and Source SDK.
*Uses half of the electricty of an 8800GT when idle. This is 90% of the time on my system.
*This is the Overclocked version so clocks are 725core and 1800mem vs standard 666 / 1650.
*During real gameplay at 1680x1050 I notice little difference between this and my 8800GT.
As said, the 8800GT is generally 10-20% faster, but it costs 30-40% more and usually comes with a much poorer stock cooler.
There are also cheaper 256MB 3850's available, but I think the 512MB of ram and great cooling (the cooler is better than the stock 3870 and 8800GTS coolers) make it worth the money. At 877 core my GPU temps never go above 65degrees.
I AM NOT SAYING THIS IS BETTER THAN AN 8800GT (which is a great card). I am simply saying it is better value for most normal gamers.
