I'm looking to upgrade from an 8800GT staying around the £100 mark but am a little out of touch on current tech. What research I've done suggests this is the best budget card available, good card/deal?

Bought this card new when it was around the £140 mark. Great card however i'd try avoid Powercolor and the other brand that is linked to them (forget the name of them now)

i didn't think the quality was that good from the Powercolor compared to Sapphire, Asus etc
#5
go for a second hand 4850 or 4870?

save yourself some pennies. :)

Possibly true.

I've got a Powercolor 4870 1GB.
Not had any problems with it.
The sticker started to peal off due to heat in my case, but that's about it.

Bought the asus version of this card last year and its still going strong. The asus version i have is overclocked so slightly better performance but id imagine this particular one is very similar just without the cooler and overclocking. Overall its a great card, i use it for designing in photoshop and the odd bit of gaming. Havent yet found anything it cant do, more a less maxed out on all the games i play, even the recent crysis 2 demo was maxed !

Used to be 85 a month and a half ago, so have to vote cold. But, it is still a GREAT card, would just hate the thought of buying it for more now than in the past.

The graphic settings in the Crysis 2 demo settings were ridiculous and vague: Gamer/Hardcore/Advanced. Infuriating having such a little control over your frame rate.

I quite enjoyed it when I 'finally' managed to play it on Sunday afternoon and now looking for a good preorder :)

Does that make it a bad deal? Odd reasoning..

Odd? Possibly. Makes sense to me though :). Take an example when there is only one seller of an item, shall I accept their price because I have no other price to compare it with?

It's a good price if you can't buy it cheaper today surely? Unless you can time travel :D

Yes the best price now, I agree with that.

Time travel? No sir! :)

You're not running Crysis 2 maxed out with a single 5770 at any decent resolution, I'm using 2x5770's (@1080) and have to lower settings to gamer/advanced with 0-4AA/16xAF.

I bought the xfx radeon 5750 a couple of weeks back for £60 from ccl. Would never pay 50% more for the 5770. Not voting either way as I can't see this specific card cheaper but there have been better value options recently

Those pennies will soon be gone with those power inefficient cards.
The 5000/6000 series are so much kinder to the environment and our pockets in the long run.
#18
Kinder to the environment lol. How do you think the card was made in the first place? Where do you think your old card wil end up? Thats right, a skip in India.
#19
I have a dual monitor set up, both with DVI connections. This and most of the modern cards seem to have DVI, VGA and HDMI. Would I buy some kind of DVI splitter to create 2 DVI sockets, or use the one DVI and some kind of HDMI to DVI converter on the other?

(Sorry if this seems like a dumb question. I haven't bought a new card for many many years)

I think it's pretty obvious what his comment was getting at (lower power consumption/better efficiency).

If you have an extra £30 I would rather suggest to go for the HD6850 deal

This looks like the single slot which only has one dvi port whereas you can get double slot ones with 2 (I have the 5770 XXX edition) if you dont want the effort and untidyness of splitters etc :) Beware the double width problem though! Make sure you have enough space around your pci slot and check the length of these cards as mines in quite long....

Nice thing about these, solved two problems for me...

1) Low power for decent performance. My PSU is a bit stretched already so was quite pleased on that score

2) They can run three monitors at once. Not sure about this one, but mine has HDMI, displayport, and a DVI socket (which with an adaptor can do VGA also).
