The 8800GT from Novatech for £70 is a much better choice.

The extra RAM is pretty much useless and generally the 8800GT is much much faster than the 4670.

I've just bought this to replace an 8800gtx, I've had nothing but problems with it so am moving over to ATI. The card mentioned is a good price yes but IMO this is better, the extra memory is deffinately worth for me as I do a lot of video and image editing too which is where the memory will be really useful, I also have 4 montiors connected at 1920x1200 (2 powered splitters) so the extra memory is used their too

This is much lower power than the 8800gt and doesn't require an extra power cable, so good for people with small PSU e.g. Dell upgrades. But 8800gt is the fast card. This also runs quieter/cooler.

That's true. This doesn't require the an extra power connector whereas the 8800GT does. The 800GT also does run very hot and it's damn loud at full load. Meh, I didn't vote either way so no harm done. :-)

I’ve never seen benchmarks showing that video or image editing benefits from extra Video RAM; what are you basing your observation on?

There are applications that are starting to use CUDA to enhance video/image editing but that’s about using the raw processing power of the GPU. Adobe have started to offer this but its nVidia only I presume!

a simple overclock should sort that and you loose 512mb with the ASUS
#10
No doubt, Asus got higher memory speed. But, it comes with just one DVI port.
However, the extra 512MB memory in HIS doesn't really help too much. Unless you go for extremely high resolution 1920x1080??
Again, it is not a card for high end gaming.

Over-clocking is never guaranteed and you can try over-clocking the Asus as well. :thumbsup:
Cards like this don’t perform well enough to run games in very high resolution so it’s highly doubtful that the extra RAM will have a positive impact. If anybody has some data that says otherwise then please share.

It comes with one DVI and one HDMI which is a more flexible arrangement. These cheaper cards tend to not come with the DVI/HDMI adapter so having a built in HDMI port is a bonus for some.

I'm sure this is a decent enough price but I'm not really looking for a new card, I bought one last year.
I do like to keep an eye out and see what's coming up.

I am in the position of having a Dell (Dimension 9200) and it has the Dell 375w PSU.
I'm running 4gbs of RAM, a Quad Core 6700 and an Nvidia 9600GT.

I suspect I don't have too much headroom to take this rig much further.....but tbh so far at least I just can't see any benefit I would get anyways.
I can already run all the high def stuff I need to (including retail HD DVD & Blu-rays).
I imagine I might have to 'turn down' Crysis if I was into it but I'm not.

im suprised it runs a 9600gt to be honest!

change the psu but make sure dell havnt swapped the pins on the psu... compare with the new one before u put it in!!!

Well it really does, thankfully.

I have experienced a PC where the weak PSU causes crashes and problems and this one is a goody, rock solid and never a problem in the 2yrs I've had it
(although it was originally built with a C2D6700 with 2gbs of RAM and an Nvidia 7900gs, quickly changed to a 7950gt to get HDCP compliance).

There's something about Dell PSUs (I've heard this several times from suppliers as well as on the boards) they really put out what they're supposed to very reliably.
Other PSUs when stressed can be down to half what they claim, apparently.

The one good thing about it is that it looks as if this one has a standard type set of plugs.

My Vostro Slim is altogether a different wee beastie (that's the one I had problems with - even running a USB modem on top of it's own needs was too much for it). It has only got a 250w PSU.....and it's a very strange shape.
Thankfully I can run wireless with it ok and it makes a fantastic HTPC like that.

I dunno.
I can see myself doing my usual trick.
I buy the PC, pimp it out to keep up as best as I can and then give it away @ 4yrs old to my family......they have had some nice kit off of me over the years!
Then I buy a new one and so one and so on on the never-ending treadmill.

I have a mate who keeps his PCs going for about 6 -8yrs before he junks them, maybe I should take a leaf out of his book. :whistling: :lol:

Why would you replace an 8800gtx with an 8800gt? or this 4670 card even? makes no sense to me unless ya card was broke

They're clearing out stock before the much faster 4770 arrives, that is going to be a beast of a budget card!

Hi guys, advice needed... I have a dell vostro with a HD2400 pro gfx card... obviously, not the best in the world.. will this one be able to go into the same system? will it be easy to upgrade, i.e take the old one out and slot this one in its place and connect the same leads etc?? I am not very good with computers, I have been able to add memory and replace a like for like hard drive but never touched a gfx card so hence I am here...

Which Vostro do you have? If it's a MT (mini tower) model it will be fine. If it's a smaller form factor then you will probably need a low profile card so this won't work.
#22
immy69, to add to Agharta's reply, make sure you also have enough space breadthwise, as this has a double-slot cooler that will block off 1-2 adjacent PCI/PCI-E slots.

1. Uninstall present one in Device Manager
2. Shut down PC & detach main PSU power cord & monitor cable
3. Swap the card with this one & re-attach the cables
4. Boot-up & install the drivers for this.
#23
The HIS cooler is one of the best around, pretty much silent and leaves very good temps. Personally i'd pay the extra for that, a decent GPU cooler is anywhere upwards of £20 (barring the AC S1) and then you have the hassle of fitting it. I also believe the warranty is 2 years and that the retailer is wrong on this one.

Great card for people looking for a low power system with a bit of light gaming. The 4830 on Novatech at ~£71 is better if it's a straight forward gaming rig though.
#24
Similar cards to this at the same price have been knocking around for the last year or so.
My 3850 is as fast or faster and cost less last year and has the similar features.
I'd wait for the next price drop it can't be far away you should get a 4850 for £100 and these
will go sub £40

If you have the Vostro Slim 200 (like me) then I'm afraid the best card you'll be able to slot in will be the low-profile RADEON HD 3450 or equivelent
(they now do a Radeon HD 4550 - http://www.hexus.net/content/item.php?item=15673).

You'll have to be very careful with the power requirement (there's very little head-room with that 250w PUS).

I have the 3450 and find that with 2gbs of RAM and a C2D6750 I can handle 1080p .mkv files without any trouble, it makes for a perfect HTPC.

Good luck.
