MSI Afterburner works on cards other than MSI's, remember you don't need to have a MSI branded card to use the program Afterburner.

Yeah just pointing out that this 'specific card' broke that record in the link, good value at this price :)

No games requiring this speed for at least 6 months.

Yeah if you are playing older games, but newer games like Crysis, Crysis Warhead and Metro 2033 to name a few do require powerful cards! Especially if you want to add antialiasing and run at a high resoution. For people running games less than 1920x1080 than this card is overkill, but at 1920x1080 or higher with antialiasing than this card or better is worth getting. This is the cheapest ive seen a hd 5870 and for people who want one, good value.

Absolute waste of money,no need for even most recent game releases.

I thought the idea of this site was to post the cheapest price of a currently available product, which this is. Becasuce you think its a waste of money does not mean others will, ah well cold vote away im sure someone will think this is a good price as its the cheapest. Meh

The 5870 is overkill at the moment. A 460 or 5830 are plenty and a lot cheaper for decent resolutions. DX11 is not standard in most new games. As you say, some older games can tax a computer, but then you also need a decent whole pc setup to deal with them, so it's not just the card. If you have something older than a 260 nowadays, I'd upgrade. I've played them with my 285gtx and my older 260gtx. The 260 still runs them nicely @1920x1080, good fps with tweaked settings even in the latest games and the 285 max on all settings at same resolution.

As always with these new technologies, if you're in the market for a new one, it's best to buy 5months+ old hardware or new 'cut down' versions (for graphics cards) for best value, unless you have more money than sense, or are just rich. Consideration for electrical bills is always in my mind as cards always use a lot of power and therefore cost more to use. That's always a hidden cost that people don't seem to factor in.

Also people don't seem to realise that the bottleneck in pcs is more likely to be elsewhere, such as a magnetic hard drive. There's no point in having a beast of a graphics card when other components will slow it down.

yeah totally agree, these cards are aimed at people who want the best available right now. I think its ok for people to think something is overpriced and wouldn't buy it becasuce it doesn't appeal to them. But for some who game on PC they want the best and this card is the cheapest I have seen a HD 5870. I just don't think people should cold vote becasuce a product doesn't appeal to them. Voting should be based on the best price per item, I never cold vote anyones post just becasuce the product doesn't appeal to me. I thought others would do the same (Except the PS3 and XBOX360 fanboys who seem to cold vote on there console of choice lol)

Agreed. I didn't vote either way on this.

I was tempted, but only for a while. I'm holding out for the Southern Islands refresh, due Q4 this year.

Yeah im looking forward to the ATI refresh, I know people say the HD 5870 is overpowered but personally I want a card that run Crysis at a constant 60fps+ with 4 x antialising and 16 x anistropic. There still isn't a card that can do it, except the new Asus HD 5870 x2 but that cost £1100 lol
#15
Fantastic price - I was thinking about getting a 5850, but this isn't much more for a better card!
#16
Expired - just followed link and now it says £305.44 inc VAT.
