I have this card and its fantastic i paid £134 with 3 free games from Overclockers it overclocks massively without any voltage 1050 core and 1250 on the memory it would go further but thats as far as the core will go in Afterburner. It plays all games at max resolutions i tried Need for speed most wanted and everything was set to high, before you get the people saying the 2gb version is the one to get the 1gb is just as fast and it will play all games at Max settings at 1920x1080 which is what most people want. There are a couple of games that may like the extra memory like battlefield but ive played them all on my 1gb card at max setting and they have been fine, if you search overclocking 7850 in Google you will find the threads showing some of the clocks people have been getting with the 7850 and they will blow you away with a little voltage 1450+ on the core is doable with a nice overclock you can get this running fast enough to keep up with the 7870 and even surpass it people on the forums have had the 2gb version of this card benchmaking as fast as the Nvidia 570 and 580 for a lot less money i would assume that the 1gb card will do the same. People are saying that the 7850 is the best overclocking card there's ever been and i would have to agree, in my other rig i have a 6870 and that cant touch this, its a very fast card. The 2gb version is not really worth the extra in my opinion as to play at higher resolutions including 3 monitors the card is not fast enough so the memory wont come into it you will want a much faster card but for that but 1080p its great.

Great card, possibly the worst retailer on the web IMO. They are crooks, buy from them at your peril, even Pixmania have better after care service than these shysters in my experience.

I live near them and get all my computer stuff there. They are very good but it could be different if you live far away.

Have to agree everytime ive had to return stuff there have been issues, this week ive contacted them as my WD live streaming media players remote control has stopped working correctly some of the buttons are not working, there reply was contact WD eventhough its still under warranty and was bought from them. I dont know how they keep winning awards for there after sales because all ive experienced puts them bottom of the list. I think the warranty is with MSI anyway and they have a UK address if i remember rightly.

So it takes a little while, you do it once and it saves you the best part of a tenner everytime you order and you get it next day. If your to lazy to fill out the forms pay the shipping but most people would be happy to, its nice to know that when you give help people like you comes in and spoils it, 100s of people would be happy that ive pointed this out and even linked the forms for them but you have something bad to say, theres always one. The term 2 minutes means a short time have you never said give me 2 minutes or i will be back in 2 minutes, what did you want me to do sit and fill out the forms while timing myself so i could give the exact amount of time it takes.

Yawn it still has to have the price including delivery.
#16
supposedly scan aren't too good if you want any sort of refunds, personally i had sent back a card to amazon and it was so simple within seconds of launching the claim i had an automatic delivery return setup! ocuk when i used them a few years ago were horrific.. they were conmen but i believe they got took over by a new company.

Signing up to a forum does take under 2 minutes. You literally enter a name, username, email and date of birth. If anyone thinks that takes up a lot of time then I cannot fathom how they manage getting through day-to-day life.

BTW you have no right to have a go at OP. You posted a Scan deal a few weeks ago and left out shipping charges...

Strange. I've used nothing BUT Scan for all my computer parts for years now... mainly because of the quality of their service.

A while back I ordered a monitor 2-minutes before the next day cut off time... and 10 minutes later I get a dispatch notification email. Not only that but I get an SMS and email on the morning of my deliveries saying what 60-minute slot it'll be delivered in.

The reason a lot of people get mad is because Scan have in-house testing for RMA's - unlike behemoths like Amazon who can afford to send back (possibly) working parts to the manufacturer, companies like Scan probably can't.

This was very uncalled for. Your tone was rude and I rightfully think you should apologize to ether707.

ether707 was absolutely right. It is not a 2 minute job, you do not sign up for the forums and are then given Free delivery from SCAN instantly. You need 100 posts on the Hexus forums and you can't just sign up and start posting in various threads within a day to ramp up your post count to 100. You have to do it over a few weeks and have been an active member contributing in various sections of the forum in order to qualify otherwise you get banned. I know all this because I have been a member of the Hexus forums for 5 years now. Now, in these few weeks it takes you to get 100 posts, this deal may have expired!

mamboboy, you need to read this as well.

Not sure why people had issues with SCAN. If an item you bought is faulty, you will only get a refund if you send it back within 14 days/30 days ( Not sure which :( ) After that, the retailer is not liable to refund you and will only send you New replacements, unless the item is no longer being anufactured or shipped to the UK. If the warranty of the item is for 3 years, then, the retailer will handle your RMA issues for 1 year only. After that, you need to talk to the manufacturer directly.

I had an i3 which I was using with a H67for 6 months. I moved to Asus P67 and it killed the i3. Told SCAN and they sent me a new sealed one.

OP, I think the OCUK deal is better.

MSI HD 7850 OC 1024MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Cards w/ FARCRY3, Nexuiz & Sleeping Dogs PC Games [R7850-1GD5/OC]

You get 3 games instead of 1. OCUK are also doing a Halloweeen Free Delivery for orders above £66.66 with voucher code ocukhalloween

MSI cards are excellent and the probability of you having problems within your 1st year is next to 0%

Yes, I agree posting on Hexus may be asking a lot for some, but there's no excuse for waiting 14 days at AV Forums. What effort does waiting require apart from existing?

Don't want to be pedantic, but it's actually 20 constructive posts for Hexus. Which is very doable. But I do understand your point that it isn't a 2 minute job and I agree with the rest of your statements!

Nothing to do with in house testing, its their obvious policy to firstly fob you off with "nothing to do with them, contact the manufacturer" when that fails and they finally admit the item is faulty they unearth an obscure piece of legislation to justify offering a fraction of the original cost, eg. Buffalo HDD, cost 60 quid, offered 32 plus vat, because I owned the item for 8 months so they perceived I had some value out of it. Still makes my blood boil, CROOKS.
