Why negative? It's the best price for a GTX 280 anywhere.....it's a high end GPU.
#2
I dont agree with the price of these in the current climate however being an avid pc fan i do appreciate how good they are and its wrong to vote cold.

Voted hot
#3
Looks to be the best price since one was posted for £242 @ Scan a few months ago.

Pity it's only available from Overclockers though (probably reason for the cold votes?).

Don't worry about the early cold votes. If it is a good deal, it will do well eventually :thumbsup:
#4
Given the "poor" USD->GBP rate, it's an excellent price for the 2nd (or 3rd if you consider the 4850X2 faster) fastest consumer GPU.

Obviously this has been reduced as the GTX 285 is due any day now, but this card is perfect for anyone who games at high resolutions.
#5
HOT very good price :)

Forget the early cold voters! They have no idea what it is and just vote cold for the fun of it. If its a good deal it will heat up :)
banned#6
-2c wtf? BTW I just gave it +15c heat it a great price.

It a great price I just have not heard good things about OCUK...
#7
Hot from me, good price!
#8
Their customer service seems fine these days, delivery wise they are rapid, I got a faulty drive from them a few weeks ago and they refunded me no problem.
#9
Amazing price for this kit. Was looking at waiting for the 55nm 260 but this is making me think :thinking:
#10
This really is an amazingly low price! Heat added from me.
#11
Great price, no money :x heat added !
#12
Yeah, but its Overclockers. Worst customer service on the planet..

You need to have been a member on their forum for a certain amount of time / or have a certain number of posts.

I've bought from OCUK a few times in the past, but only specific items I can't get elsewhere, as Ebuyer is usually cheaper.

Voted hot, but expect further price drops as the new versions of the Nvidia high end cards start to pop up and people look to clear the old stock.
#16
To get free delivery you need to be a 'loyal' member of their 'forums' so it’s only applicable to people who already know about OcUK. The forums are full of sycophantic mumblings about how wonderful the company/ owner is and does not allow criticism of the company or mention of competitors; if you can stomach posting on there you'll need to rack up a few posts to get free delivery

They certainly aren't known for their customer service and were in the press a few times about their lack of interest in returns/ refunds. I'd be more inclined to use them for items which can be returned to the manufacturer direct if they go wrong or you may find yourself waiting a while for their RMA system to sort it out.
#17
IMO it's worth the extra ££ to buy this somewhere else and avoid OCUK.
#18
Darn good price, shame OcUK are pants though.
#19
Buying from Overclockers means you are giving money to a disgusting racist homophobic bigoted moron. I'd rather pay more and buy from someone who doesn't make me sick.

lol what made you chose your name here "spielo" lol
#21
can't you just buy an xbox or ps3 for a similar price and be done with it then you don;t have to spend hundreds every year on upgrading PC graphics cards?
#22
Great price, but overclockers won't see any of my money again after experiencing their notorious customer service. :x
#23
Thanks for the info guys... wont be buying from OCUK ( Overclockers ) then...

And i very strongly agree with the Xbox/PS3 coment above!
#24
This is a great price, but Overclockers really do have THE WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE I have ever experienced. Contacting them when something goes wrong is very difficult, and they regularly sell used goods as new.

I used to be a regular customer until I had two very bad experiences. The first I thought was a "one-off" failure but the second confirmed they are pants.

What and pay microsoft a monthly fee to pay online? And you dont need to upgrade every year, thats a myth. My pc is 4 years old and I play games fine
#26
Hot deal. I recently ordered the BFG OC Maxcore 260 from PC World for £190 - egg cashback and quidco and thats expensive elsewhere (£245 on http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/896MB-BFG-GTX260-OC-MAXCORE-PCI-E-20(x16)-Mem-1998MHz-GPU-590MHz-216-Cores-2xDL-DVI-HDTV scan, but this is a hot price for a 280

Because you can put together a computer capable of performing just as well as a PS3 for around £350, and games are on average £20 cheaper.

ALSO, a PC can be used for more than just the game/multimedia.

Don't get me wrong, the PS3 is great for people who want little hassle and can afford the ridiculous price of the games, but everybody has different needs.

The forum may be heavily over-moderated, but the knowledge of many of the members and information you can get from it is amazing.

That's the only reason I'm still on it 4 years later, haha
#29
I guess the prices have dropped because the GTX280 replacement is due for release next week. This is simply shifting old stock and making way for the next new thing.

Other (read much more professional) retailers will no doubt drop prices soon as well. I would wait for the new cards or buy from a more honest outfit.
#30
I like to play my games at 1680x1050 max AA thanks :)

Anybody tried playing GTA4 or the new need for speed on Xbox360 or Ps3 ? .... laggy isnt it! Looks liek AA os turned off.
#31
i got this card for around this price, well worth it its a fantastic piece of kit good find!
#32
Nice price, but unfortunately the economy downturn has effected my bank account :(

If resolution and AA were all that mattered the Wii would not be the success it is. A good game does not depend on cutting edge graphics, but some games are better suited for either PC or console formats. I personally prefer FPS and Strategy genres on PC, and sports, platform and racing on console (PS3).

I am fortunate to own both a Zotac GTX280 and a PS3, but at similar prices the PS3 is much better value for all it offers. The lifespan of current consoles will also outlive current top-end graphics cards. I will not be using my 280 in 5 years, but the PS3 and maybe even the Wii will still be there.

edit: i'm an idiot... ignore :p
#35
Hmm never had a problem with OCuk myself, found there customer service quite good. But then i am biased by there forum and if theres counter evidence i guess you can't argue it. I think the comments about forum members are very unfair though, theres a lot of very good information on there, theres idiots too, but thats true of every forum.

fair enough, good point about the cheaper games.

you couldn't build a PC with this graphics card in to perform like a ps3 for £350 though surely? not forgetting a PS3 gives you blu-ray.

I'm definitely one of those who likes life with 'little hassle'.

having said all this, I don't have a ps3 or a PC! :w00t:

I think the Wii is the biggest fad buy/craze of the past year. Everyone had to have one cos everyone was trying to buy them. They sold out so they must be good! Nearly everyone I know has one and played them to death in thye first month, now they realise how silly and unplayable they really are. ''Yey, lots swing our arms around and pretend to play tennis or golf, wait a minute this sucks!''

And now they make nice white ornaments! Heh heh!

I used to agree with all you write. However, I spent Christmas playing the Wii with my family (kids, teenagers, adults, grandparents) and can honestly say NOTHING can beat the Wii for group play. The PC, PS3 and 360 cannot even come close to 4 player Mario Kart, Wii Sports etc.

...and all on a console with poor graphics, based on hardware from the last century. Try one and see.
#39
If you buy high end hardware, then you don't usually think about downgrading to a console, or compare a purchase of a GPU to a console, especially since such components make the graphics on a games console look like you are comparing a PS3 vs PS2.

Running games at 1920x1080 with full AA (4870X2, Q6600, 8gb RAM here) on my 40" LCD looks a mile better than PS3/Xbox equivalents...also consoles tend to output lower than advertised resolutions (some games run at "640p" etc)

There's no point in comparing games consoles to PCs, the conclusion is always the same. Consoles are cheaper, PCs are way more powerful (games look better etc).
