Use code: uni30 for £30 discount.


EDIT: If you are planning on purchasing BF4 and want the card immediately. Check out the BF4 version for £439.99 CCL online - http://www.cclonline.com/product/126021/CGAX-R929X8BF4/Graphics-Cards/Club-3D-R9-290X-Battlefield-4-Special-Edition/VGA1922/

I want add some recommendations for anyone looking to upgrade their graphics cards any time soon.You really have some good options:

-Get a R9 290X for £388, performance speaks for itself.

-Get a 7950 overclocked non reference for £174-190. This should over clock well and perform better than 7970. (scan.co.uk, 173.99 today only, may come up again sometime soon)

-Get a Sapphire R9 280X Toxic (best non reference model, very close to gtx 780 performance) for £253 (dabs.com)

-Wait for R9 290, details and possible stock available next friday. This card is truly the best one for value given its performance. Look at the benchmark graphs here (the card name is blurred out, http://forums.overclockers.co.uk/showthread.php?t=18551534 It matches and beats Titan in some of the benchmarks. (Price is £350 +/- £20 according to OCUK staff).

-Wait and see the prices on Nvidia prices once GTX 780ti is released.

It all depends on your budget, performance preference, brand preference and whether you are willing to wait and/or overclock your cards, which you should be!

The new AMD cards are very good given its price. Just needs a non reference cooler. Will have that in a month or two. You can get a R9 290X for £388-449. Meanwhile GTX 780 is around 470-580. Even better, the R9 290 seems to be the best card once over clocked in terms of value. It should be £350 +/- £20.

I'm certainly going to see if the 780 prices go to £350ish so I can get a third.

I cannot see them dropping to £350 RRP, but if you shop around and find good discount codes, you might just get lucky :)

R9 290X NDA lifts next week friday. I think we may see the in stock then. The price, like I said, should be £350 +/- £20. I think you could save anywhere £18-58, which you could put towards one of these bad boys to cool the hot card. http://forums.overclockers.co.uk/showthread.php?t=18551649

Remember, the Dabs.com offer is ordered upon request, so will take longer than usual. Might be worth waiting till next week friday? In my opinion, yes.

Just bought one, thanks for the code!

This is hot lol :)

I've been tempted to move over to Nvidia for a while now, but Mantle could be massive, so I'm kind of torn at the moment... No real point in upgrading from my 6950 right now though, as Star Citizen and TW3 are still quite a way off (which would be my main reason for upgrading in the first place)

wow nice

Hot. Literally.

you realise having 3 780s is basically pointless

True but best to keep this on standby incase the 290 non x turns out to be around the same price. If the 290 non x is cheaper and can be flashed to 290x speeds without any problems then obviously I will cancel this.

Ordered many thanks, but also i hate you as i its just cost me 388 quid other halfs gonna kill me!

I was close to oredering a matrix 7970 so think this was worth the extra cash, Currently running two GTX460 in SLI and hoping for some huge gains over them!

While this is a good price, dabs has awful reviews online. The amount of people saying they never receive items...that would put me off ordering this.

Cheapest in the UK plus a further £30 off. Must be hot.
malachi#17
Never had a problems with Dabs, only had to return one item years ago which was painless and simple.
Hypnowhirl#18
Anyone know the expiration date on the UNI30 code?
Recently cancelled my order for one of these on Overclockers and am looking at a 3-5 day wait on when I get my money back :(
calv1987#19
this could just take over the aging twin 6850's i have. tempting. . .

Glad that AMD are putting the fight to nvidia now, serves them right for being greedy ****. If there is one thing AMD have done right the last 5 years, its pricing.

Now if only Intel could make a serious push in to the dedicated GPU market, it might be interesting again.
