Novatech usually do this... sell branded ones as their own. So more often than not you get a good deal.

Ps great avatar... roll on the Championship ;-)
#2
Hehe yep. Also dont forget quidco.

Have been offered a ATI Radeon 1950 Pro for similar money is this card much better or the 1950 PRO?
#4
ive not looked properly at the specs but I would be tempted to wager so
#5
hard to find a comparison as 1950 is benchmarked against older games, 5670 is a lot newer.

1000x better, 1950 pro is a couple years old. The 5670 is fairly new. Whoever is selling you the 1950 is taking you on for a fool.

A 5670 is about twice as fast as a 1950 pro on 3D06 benchmarks (10400 vs 5100 for 512mb models)
The 1950 pro also consumes lots of power runs hot has no HD native decoding and is only DX9 so wont play some games that require DX10 as a minimum. Pretty worthless card. The only models of the previous generation to have any value is the HD2900 pro or XT.

Anyone know how this compares to a HD4770? Mine's on the fritz & I really don't want to downgrade.

I've found the answer thanks - http://www.overclock.net/ati/648171-4770-vs-5670-a.html

Yep looks like they have the sapphire ones in now as novatech ones and back up £75 There was 6 when orginally posed.
#12
just out of interest - is this card self powered?
#13
No solar panels or wind turbines on there. However it does just need the power from the PCI-E slot and no additional cables into the side from the power supply.
#14
These are the best available cards for video playback, i use to playback my skyhd, it manages to do two simultaneous streams of 1080i without stuttering.

sorry, but not found

The person whos offered you a 1950 pro for similar money is no fool is he that card is old and is DX9 and can be well beat for the same money by something like a 8800gt and so on or a 4830 both DX10 if you can still get them and i should imagine that this would easily beat it also and this is a DX11, if i where you id tell the person selling this card to stick it where the son dont shine its worth £20 and no more.

The big thing you need to know is what board you have as the 1950pro also came in AGP slot and is well old so before buying a new card make sure your board has PCI-e and that you power supply is up to the job as a standard old supply will be no good you will need at least a decent 400watt psu for a modern gaming card even the low end ones like this.

Let me put you right 2years ago nvidia released a graphics card which blew everything else away and was the best card on the market this card was a 8800gt and was well over £200 at launch of Christmas 2008 and you couldn't get one for love or money, a few months later they revised the naming system a little and so was born the 9800gt and the slightly slower 9600gt which was pretty much the same cards but with a different name both of these cards where absolute monters for gaming so for you to say that the 9600gt isn't a gaming card is utter rubbish at that time there was nothing to touch it and there wasn't till ATI dropped the 4850/4870 and the 4850 wasn't a whole lot faster than the 8800gt/9800gt or the slightly slower 9600gt, so before you spout rubbish at least understand what you where talking about.

A two year old midrange card absolutely is not a "gaming card" at this point, neither would be a similarly performing Radeon 3870
#22
Would this be a worthwhile upgrade from a ati HD 4670?
#23
For an old card the 8800GT is great card, using it now to play BF2 Bad Company on medium settings at 1920*1080.

Also the link is not working.

And I use this to compare graphics cards

Probably against the rules of engagement but to the guy who is being sold a dud, I have a gigabyte hd4350 on ebay for £25. Pm me if you're interested.

What would you say is the best card in the 100-200 price bracket?

Radeon 5770 or GTX 460 depending on how much you want to spend. Currently I'd probably go for the GTX 460 1GB. Ebuyer have them starting at £174 with free shipping. For £206 you can get a 5850 (1 only ex display unit). Anyway the simple answer is GTX 460 1GB.

I would have to agree. Or you could wait and see what the new ATI offerings do to the price of the 5850 (which, as an owner, could make me very upset).

Actually, you are wrong as well mate :P.
Heres how nvidia did the naming scheme

8800GT--> 9800GT---GTS240
8800GS---> 9600GT
8800GTS (512mb version)---> 9800GTX---> 9800GTX+---> GTS 250

Now the 8800GT is a perfect card no doubt there, however it is beaten by a lot of cards now. The 9800GT brought a die shrink i believe so a bit lower power consumption.

I know the 9600GT is a cut down version of the 8800GT so if it aint based on the 8800GS i apologize. Its not as good as the 8800GT, its about 20% slower iirc it has 1/3 less shader count and clocked less. Its a good budget gaming card but is on par with a 4670 or 4770 and a 5670 does even better.


The ati 4850 was a huge amount faster than the 8800 bud, its 10-15% faster than the 9800GTX+! Which is even faster than the 8800gt :D.

Nvidia did dominate that market for awhile with the 8800GT so congrats to them but they let it slip by sitting on their **** to long haha.


Also yeh, your original response was right that they are "gaming" cards so if you had little money for the gpu it was a good buy.
@ j400uk
I wouldnt bother upgrading from a 9600GT to a 5670 if i was you, id either wait for the new 6000 series from AMD this year (November hopefully) as that will drop the price of all these cards by a nice amount then you can pick up a 5770 or something for £60 :).

This is a useful comparison page if you are looking at where graphics cards sit in the overall scheme of things:

So you're using a 112 shader graphics card released in 2008 to play a game that's pretty directly ported from a version written to run on hardware with 24 (PS3) or 48 (Xbox 360) shaders from 2005

That does not a modern gaming card make.

i do understand actually as i had a 9600gt and a 8800gt. Try playing a modern game using a 9600gt, the 8800gt was and still is better than a 9600gt. the 8800gt was roughly 20% faster than the 9600gt and the 9800gtx even more so so saying they are "the same card" is nonsense.

i meant if gaming is the users main use then neither card would be great. most benchmarks would back me up on that im sure. cant imagine many people buying a new card are basing it on "two years ago"

dont be such a douche, get off your high horse

Maybe not modern, but I game with it! It does struggle with Arma2/Metro2033 though. GTX460 will be here this week to remedy that!. It will be a sad day to remove the 8800gt. I hope I get as many years out of the 460!!!!
