Please be aware that this is on Pre-order but a great price as they are on ETA 04/02/2011.

GTX 470 is still a beefy card..on par with 6870 in performance with higher OC potential and some nvidia stuff like phyx and cuba..

it however consumes more power (60+w more at full load) and it's more noisy and warmer than 6870..

but at this price....it's really a good deal

Some buy 460 1gb at this price and 6850 and this is at par with 6870

Great Fps per pound!!!

price 4 this card around the net are about +/-190 plus deliver

so please tell why would u vote cold?

"so please tell why would u vote cold?"

Voted hot because the price is amazing. The people that vote cold will be the ATI fanboys.
#2
I didn't vote cold because I'm an AMD fanboy!
I did it to help keep the heat off that gpu core. :P

Not voted yet since I need to check pricing first.
#3
Mate i have to ask when i give people a change of savings about 50 pounds on a great card like this!!!

Voting is so much more the pressing up and down

Is realising that people invest the time on putting deals here and some of us do research about 30 min
to make this is actually the best deal available

But I only vote cold if i can do a better deal.

Then my vote will help the hotukdeals community.

Have a great day and do enjoy life.

Ridiculously good deal, especially for those that get free shipping.

No doubt it'll get some cold votes based on retailer, however.
#5
Amazing price for this card, wouldn't go for it myself too hot n power hungry for me. Voted hot though...

Very good deal, I had a stock 470 until recently and it is a very powerful card. These do run hot but that cooler will no doubt keep it well under control.

A lot of people like to also exaggerate the noise - I can honestly say I never noticed the fan over the rest of my system, the only time I ever heard it clearly was running Furmark, but I doubt there's a game out there that would ever push it that hard; again the cooler on this is going to keep noise to a minimum anyway.

Personally I wouldn't hesitate to pick one of these up if it was a choice between this or a HD5850/6870 at a similar price.

Good card, good price, but Overclockers are a dishonnest thieving bunch of ******s. Be warned!

Should i vote cold to keep the temp down on this as you can cook an egg on this as it runs so hot. ROFL

Are overclockers the bnp supporters?
#10
I do however object to the SHOCKING CUSTOMER SERVICE, and outright THEFT from my credit card. They took additional money from my card without permission after I returned a faulty item to them. The money was only refunded after I got my credit card company involved.

Pre order from Overclockers…..you must be joking.

Wouldn’t pay them in washers after issues I have had in the past. Don’t expect any support from their so called “forum” as they are very negative towards people and made up of “clicky” people who relish in talking down to you if you want some help.

If you do use them pay via credit card for protection.

Cold – Avoid

Oh my this is a kick ass card, kick ass cooler and kick ass price! Why only pre-order though... i want it now!!!!!!!

Based on your screen size/resolution I suggest you not to buy it and carry on using your PC as a gaming console.
Are you still using CRT?

No, 42 inch toshiba 1080P lcd.

I think its a justifiable question though. I mean, if my G-Card can cope with todays latests games ( on High/very high with the exception of V high on crysis) and can be used to H-decode bluray, MKV etc what advantage does my purchasing this card have over my existing card besides being able to up the resolution to a higher pixel cou nt (which to me, suggests that the only advantage of this card would be that of a "higher pixel fill rate", no?
#24
This is a really good deal for this card.

Do keep in mind that Radeon 6870 is slightly faster and new 560Ti is noticeably faster.
#25
I wish the lower end cards would get a substantial discount to fall in line with these clearance deals for ATI 5850 and 5870, Nvidia 470 and 480.

Would really like a 5770 Sapphire Vapor-X or MSI Hawk for under £100 with fast delivery. Or a shorter PCB 5850 than the MSI Twin FrozR.

800x600? On a 42" TV? Generally a higher spec GPU means higher sreen res and framerates... That's what you are paying for. If you're happy with that low resolution then keep the card you have.

Sure, I don't even need a graphics card. My CPU can resolve 160x90 all on its own. AA and everything.

yeah 800x600 on a 42 inch TV isnt that bad though. its 120 lines off of HD Ready and lets face it, anyone who can tell me that they can HONESTLY differentiate between HD Ready and FULL HD on a 42 inch telly at 10 foot seating distance is quite frankly either OCD or a liar for the sake of it.

Im just curious as to what the differences between cards are these days. I mean back in the Geforce versus 3DFX ranges there was a marked difference between performance characteristics pixel fill rate versus T&L etc. These days i just dont see the big differences that justify the upgrades which is what my question is really pushing at.

i mean, a 5 year old card can run new games at high to very high at HD quality (with AA on you could probably argue that it is higher quality than 1300 x 700 with no AA so.....) just curious as to whether the investment would be worth it for me.

If there was something of USE that this card did eg does it do DX11? then for me it might have been worth it.

I'll obstain from voting cause for me its neither hot nor cold. something which is useless for 1000 quid is still useless at 10 quid

I've used Overclockers a few times and they have been fine on delivery, though the forum was less inviting - make any kind of criticism of the site or the mods and you can expect a ban.

You do realise that the "1080p" part of the TV name means it is designed to display a resolution of 1900x1080?

very good. But why do you need to run at 1920 x 1080 with AA x 16 at 100 fps for?

However, please keep buying the products as the R&D certiainly helps drive down the real cost for those of us that dont upgrade our Vcards by reflex action! = p

Ditto, plus I've had lots of useful tips from there. The fact that they run the forum is one of the reasons (along with the free delivery for longstanding forum members) I use them for most of my purchases. Never had any problems with them.

I've taken the plunge! Quite a nice upgrade from my 9800GX2 (Which I'll be selling!) in time for RIFT.
#38
Does anyone know of a website were I can compare this and the ATI 6870. From reading around the 6870 is slighty faster but thats just hear say at the moment. At £144 its roughly £56 cheaper than the cheapest 6870 on overclockers.

UPDATE - Found it, http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/290?vs=311. The 470 loses out on some benchmarks but pretty similar to the 6870. Big downside is the power it consumes and the temperatures at idle and high load.

HedgyHoggy you may be correct but i dont think this is place for that type of comments but thanks for the second update.

second this card those differ from the stock with a Twin Frozr II.

So less noise and less heat.

I do like my nvidia cards.
