This card is basically the same card as 8800GT but runs just a bit more efficiently and cooler. However as this is a 1024MB card at £97.47, it is cheaper than any 8800GT 1024MB that I could find online, which in my opinion it is a bargain!!!

*This graphics card requires a power supply unit: A minimum 450W power supply unit (with a minimum 26A current rate for 12V) , one 6-pin PCI-E supplementary power connector.

Edit:
This is a good deal for those who prefer Nvida then ATi and those who prefer to run SLi then CrossFire. Personally I have got SLi M/B thus it is unrealistic for me to get a ATi card.

Too close to the 4850 to be a good deal really, even with half the memory the 4850 is the faster card.

That should put most people off :roll:

It is important to bear in mind the power requirements of this card.
You need a minimum of 450w power supply unit, and I wouldn't be surprised if the card needs 2 power connectors rather than one.
People sometimes overlook this.

Good deal though in my opinion.

That power rating is very conservative, you could get away with a lesser PSU.

It only needs a single PCI-E power connector.

Im using a good FSP 400w no problem with my 8800GT. As said, conservative as some people do buy the cheapest of PSUs.

9800gt=8800gt , nvidia changed the 8 to a 9 and tried to get rid of the stock.
the 9800gtx is the better one, and well it costs more then the 4850. while the 4850 is better then both.

4850>9800gtx>9800gt=8800gt
#8
8800GT is a great card anyway...I have one in my PC not worth changing for anything at the mo :whistling:
#9
The extra VRAM is only really useful if you have a huge monitor or love turning AA to the max.

Still a nice card for the price

1Gb enfact would be pretty pointless unless you had a pair in Sli, seen as the single card couldnt drive games at required resolutions & texture detail.

but as every one else has been saying 4850 ftw

If I buy a 9800GT now, is it likely to be 65nm or 55nm? I'm hoping for 55nm, cooler, better overclocking, and hopefully all the manufacturing problems fixed as well? :)

Its more than likely 65nm, plenty of old stock to clear.
#13
hmm too close to 4850 price of around 110 on ebuyer
1 gig prob makes no diff either

That's a pity :(

Any news on the 4650/4670 yet?

No you've woken up in a universe where ATI are walking all over Nvidia currently.

Could this be used in SLI with an 8800GT 521mb and still have access to all that memory? (I know you can now use 2 different models in SLI, but both cards will run to the lower one's speeds)

I ask as I currently have an 8800GT. It's a great card on it's own and is fine for most games, however, running the latest DX10 games with high settings does reveal it's nowhere near the high end gear (lower the settings a bit and it's fine though)

From what I've read you can also do without SLI and use a second card (8600 and above?) for the 'Physx' engine some of the newer games can use (Obviously, theres a trade off in performance for detail if you do)

I refuse to deal with Aria again after they sent me the wrong Microsoft Keyboard; then claimed that my re-taping of the plain, brown cardboard box containing said keyboard which I sent back to them was 'damaging the packaging of the product so that it couldn't be sold on' and tried to charge me for 'wasting their time' and 'damaging their goods'.

Poor customer service, very poor.

Except when you try and install an ATI driver, doesn't it insist on installing some third-party software first?

It's a while since I used ATI but I remember it definitely needed something installed before the drivers would work.

I don't like aria thesedays after I sent them some faulty ram back and after chasing them for months they then decided to claim they shipped it and it was royal mails fault.

Got so sick of chasing them, Never orderd from them since.
#21
I do agree with you on aria's poor customer service (after sales service), I bought a arianet branded LCD monitor a few years back which came with 3 year warranty, after it broken on the second year I was trying to contact the customer service to get it fixed and they never sorted it out for me.

Nowadays I order more from scan then from aria, but still when the deal is good I would still order from aria just avoid the arianet branded items then you can contact the manufacture directly for warranty repair.

You don’t need to install any ‘third party’ software to install the driver. The Catalyst Control Centre which is optional requires Microsoft’s DotNet runtime to be installed as do quite a few other applications these days.

i had to get my credit card company involved with aria to get my money back and the second time it took them 3 months to refund my money on a faulty item i wouldnt buy from aria if they where the last place on earth.

It is much the same card performance wise but the 9800GT does have the very worthwhile HybridPower so it's not just a straight rebranding.

ATI don't fully support Matrox Triplehead2Go adaptors with their BIOS, so I only have the choice of Nvidia, so it's a good deal as far as I'm concerned.

Well, if the picture on Aria's site (and here) is of the product (who knows - they say it's not representative) then it's a Palit board (http://www.palit.biz/main/vgapro.php?id=725) and I think it is actually the 55nm version (http://www.sysopt.com/news/article.php/3762291).

Still, Scan had the Palit 9800GT 512MB for £78 last week, inc delivery if you're with Hexus. That's £27 cheaper (once you add delivery costs to the Aria deal) for the same card - just less memory that's not all that useful anyway. I'm not going to vote this cold as I think it's still a decent price if you must have Nvidia 8800GT/9800GT and you just must have 1GB ram to boast to your mates; but it's certainly not hot for me. 4850 would be a far better investment for the same price.
