Cheapest price I could find for this awesome card. Going to buy two for crossfire, just got to find a way to hide them from her-in-doors!

nice

At last these are available for sub £100. I was getting despondent about how predictably long it was taking AMD to bring out their new 7*** series cards and for there to be a price reduction knock-on down the range of nvidia 560 TI and old amd 6850 / 6870 cards. Could use a bundled game to sweeten the deal a little and perhaps Dabs will do that. Meantime, either way, fairly hot, for me. Not all games are happy with two 6850s but my friend running them says drivers have improved things a lot.

'Not all games are happy with two 6850s but my friend running them says drivers have improved things a lot.' - drivers will never get rid of the input lag.

It's a hardware problem, which even the new 7000 series won't fix. Oh well, maybe in another decade...

great card to upgrade older systems

Just one of these can play Rage at 1920x1080 with everything ramped up to the max at decent frame rates, it's a real bargain.

Depends on your CPU of course. Great card for the money, well spent over something like a 5770 but not worth the upgrade if you have one.

I agree with all the above OP, stay away from Crossfire/SLI, not worth the hassle, spend your money on one single fast card.

Fuming about the 7950 delay and there's no way i'm forking out for the 7970.
Still quite pleased with my 5850 though.

Agree, I have a 5770 and this isn't worth upgrading to, the 5770 used to be the best entry card to play modern games at near full spec, but that card has had it's day so now this probably has the crown and represents good value @ £100, so hot from me.

-Just started playing my first PC game since WoW, Star Wars - The Old Republic and am considering getting a new card to get better performance, although it's running fine on the low settings. Would this be a good choice for the money? I don't want to build a whole new machine.

My current spec is a Core 2 Duo 2.8Ghz, 4GB RAM, Geforce 9400GT. This seems to be running the game fine on low settings but was looking to upgrade a bit.

Yes this would be quite a big upgrade over the 9400 GT, providing you have at a 400w psu or higher you should be fine.

“I agree with all the above OP, stay away from Crossfire/SLI, not worth the hassle, spend your money on one single fast card.”

Any suggestions on a single card that I could purchase at under £200 that would be better/more reliable than two of these in crossfire?

A 6950 or if you can spare another £30, the 6970 : http://mocustoms.co.uk/store/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=78673

How much better is this card than a ATi Radeon HD 5670 1GB?

Response much appreciated! Ta!

Yes this would be a good upgrade but i think your cpu may bottleneck the games unless you overclock it

Nice, ordered 6 to upgrade office PC's, thanks

as with as pc component upgrades make sure your power supply is up to it. Otherwise you run the run of destroying your pc

How about inside your PC? ;)

What's the point of putting these in office PCs, except to bump up the company electricity bill?

Great performance for the price.
