Great price for a 4670. Cheapest elsewhere is about £64.

Gets consistently great reviews and is Tom's Hardware's choice for the best budget graphics card (although it is perhaps more of a mid-range card):

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/best-graphics-card,2118-2.html

Although not one of the big name brands, this Palit card also gets some great reviews:

http://www.hitechlegion.com/reviews/video-cards/63-palit4670?start=9

This card is known for its very low power usage and doesn't require any external power connections. For most systems a 350W supply would be plenty.

It also has a great selection of ports - VGA, DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort. The only downside for some might be that it is a double width card.

Mine came today - delivered in 2 working days with the free delivery option.

Some of the reviewers have noticed that the card actually registers as having 1GB memory although i suspect mine has 512MB. Will confirm once it's installed tonight. Edit: My card shows up as 1024MB in Catalyst Control Centre too, but I need to do some more digging before I actually believe it has 1GB. Edit: GPU-Z reports 512MB, which is what I believe it is.

...plus a potential 3% quidco!

Edit 23/02/09: Price reduced from £57.49 to £55.19!

Here's a quick reference to see how your current card compares:
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/best-graphics-card,2118-7.html
As stated in the article Tom's Hardware suggests it's only worth upgrading to a card at least 3 tiers higher.

nice one nick
#3
This is a really good card for the money especially as it is fitted with a quieter cooler than the standard one,This is almost an exact match for the 9600gt but uses even less power so perfect for a media pc
#4
looks a good deal, but am I right in thinking it won't fit in my Dell 5150 because I need a free slot in the case ABOVE the PCI-e slot it would fit into :-(

Yup looks like it is a dual slot solution, sp need the next door slot free.

Good card and good price though, I have one of these in my HTPC and it works a treat.

No, like every graphics card I've seen I'm almost certain it faces downwards so it would cover one of your PCI slots (below the graphics card). I can confirm that later tonight when I fit it.

Your correct, sorry didn't read his post carefully enough, just assumed he meant the one below / to the left.
#8
No ,The dell 5150 is a BTX layout so i am pretty sure the graphics card fits the other way up and you will not be able to fit this car ,please check before ordering one,
#9
Thanks for the correction Tony. I'd never heard of BTX cases before.

thanks for the help guys, I think tonyg1962 is right - my current card (7900GS) has the fan facing up, and looking at the pictures I think this would be the same :-(

Yeah, I noticed that too but I think it's a typo. As I said I'll confirm tonight whether it's 512MB or 1GB but looking at the chips on the board I think it's 512MB. Apparently it doesn't make much difference unless you run high resolutions anyway.
#13
I don't really understand graphics cards. Would I be able to install a graphics card if my computer had intergrated graphics??? Also, I have a Dell XPS M1330 laptop with 128mb graphics card. Would I be able to install a graphics card as powerful as this???? (To anyone that answers either or both of my questions first I will give rep)

Integrated graphics - no problem. The integrated graphics should automatically turn itself off when you install a PCI-E card like this.
However, this card will fit a desktop PC only.
Edit: Maybe you already knew that, think I may have misunderstood your second question but I'm afraid I don't know anything about laptop graphics cards.

Would this fit an asus barebone?

Thanks, so how much would I be looking to pay for a 512mb graphics card for my laptop, or similarly for a 256mb graphics card???

Graphics Cards these days (since 2002 really) are all about the Model Number, not the memory. So this 4670 is better than a 4350 for example. With ATi the first three numbers are:

E.g. 4630:

[4] = Generation of card.
[6] = Power of Graphics Processor (the most important figure)
[3] = Secondary Power (e.g. a better GPU in the same range)
[0] = unused

So a 4630 > 3650, but a 4630 < 3980 because of the 9 is better than the 6.

I currently have a 1900XT. So going for a 4670 is a sort of side-step; almost the same power (1900 is more) in terms of graphics, but the 4670 is a better generation, will run quieter and smoother, and will trivialise certain GPU operations the 1900 wont, so even without brute strength it will perform on par.

NVidia have recently been changing their naming system. I'm in the region for looking for a replacement for my ATi 1900XT; Currently looking at a 4850 (ATi) or 9800 (NVidia).
#23
I've placed £1000's worth of orders with Novatech over the past 4+ years (I live local).

I've only had one return (helicopter which I changed about 3 times then got a full refund). Never had any issues with them or products received.

Again - different experiences different people. But I'd always go there - reasonable prices. . . and local for me :)

#24
Hmm Just like to add to my post. I was looking at an ATi 4850, but it seems two of these cards in Crossfire is about the same price, but about a 8-10% boost in benchmarks :)
#25
Crossfire is far from reliable and in somegames you get a slight boost and in other games it can run slower than a single card and in other game it may not run at all/
#26
I'm about to get into editing HD video - would this kond of card make a jot of diference on the eidting side? I have a pretty decent spec CPU at present and the onboard video plays back HD video without any worries - just worried though it might not have enough horsepower for editing.
#27
might want to look at a 4870 x2 for editing, though this one should have enough power dependent on your CPU.
#28


Not always possible though and not really a job for your average laptop owner.

This card wouldn't make much difference for editing (although I assume you mean encoding), you'd free up some ram bandwidth but that's about it as the graphics can accelerate 3D functions and decode but not much on the encode side.

Sold this card a week ago. Very decent card with every connection you can think of (DVI, VGA, HDMI and one more which I always forget). Ideal for a HTPC. Funny enough, the "offer" price is the same as the "normal" price 3 months ago when I bought it. Fan speed can be controlled manually and the card runs cool under any kind of load. This card is your best option for an HTPC as it has low power needs and is silent if you run the fan at 20% of its speed.

I'd go further and say it's very rarely possible to upgrade laptop graphics cards and often just not economically viable.

I managed to fit this card into my dell 755 which is also a BTX case, it did require a hacksaw however... It has been working fine for the past 2 months, you only lose the vga port which I will never need.

This card also has a display port connection, which is good as it means no more fiddly screws when taking the cable out.

Wow, 'random fact with no proof' of the day. I take it you don't keep up to speed with firmware updates? Two of these cards in a x16/x16 dual slot XF motherboard will outperform any 4850 synthetic, and is on par gaming wise. Useful, for if you're ever a computational chemist. Oh wait, I am. Oh wait, I'm also a gamer. Goto TomsHardware.com and check out the 4670s in XF vs the 4850. They're just about even, and no driver trouble. A lot can change when XF capability has been out for several years now.

Hi Guys,

I'm looking for a graphics card that I can run my dual monitor setup (2 x samsung syncmaster 2032s) and also be connected to my plasma tv (via hdmi presumably) - does anyone know if this would be possible with this card or do you only get 2 outputs regardless of which port you use?

If it won't do it any recommendations of a midrange card that would (no games just general PC use and occasional film watching).

Thanks.

PS - PC is Dell Vostro 200 - will it even fit...????

i have a dimension 5150 and had no problem fitting an asus 4670. the fan points down. hope this helps.
#37
OK, all installed and working :) I bought this card to use in a triple monitor setup (using SoftTH). It does remarkably well. In LiveForSpeed I get about 32fps with 2XAA and 4XAF at a resolution of 3840x1024. Maybe that sounds a bit slow but it looks pretty smooth. I haven't tried any other games yet.

As for the memory, Catalyst Control Centre does actually report it as having 1024MB. I'm not sure I believe it yet though. There is a sticker on the card which says 512MB and the memory configuration on the card is the same as other 512MB cards. I might have to do some more digging with some other software -any suggestions?

Sorry to go off topic but looking at the '3 tiers' comment above i couldn't help but wonder if i could get some advice from you knowledgeable bunch.

My query is this; i have a powercolor 4870 1GB, seen here

http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=GX-091-PC&groupid=701&catid=56&subcat=939

but i have been offered a PNY Verto GTX285 GDDR3 1GB for £270 - seen here

http://www.pny-europe.com/products.php?section=product&categoryid=7&subcategoryid=96&productid=290

Will i see any benefit on my Samsung 22" monitor? (i plan an upgrade soon - 27" +)

How much could i realistically look at getting for my 4870? (used for 10 hrs browsing - never gamed)
#39

99% of people couldn't and shouldn't attempt to then. As per the opening blurb of the article you linked to, it's like heart surgery
#40
I have an old dell dimension 8400 with a 128mb graphics card. I have found it too slow since I upgraded my camera and now process huge photo files. Would this card help much?(I can't afford to replace the whole pc at the moment) and would it just slot in where the other card comes out?
