SAPPHIRE AMD Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition
was £109.99, now £66.91 (usually about £85+ online)

Well, walked into PC World tonight to pickup a 1tb Toshiba hhd (which I've grabbed, thanks!). Noticed something else out of the corner of my eye and thought I'd share to give something back to the community.


This was instore (Portsmouth store - 2 left).
Website has them listed for this price, but not available to click and collect.

Good entry level gaming card - already have a 6850 which is similar in performance so wasn't much use to me, but this is a fantastic price and hopefully can help out someone.

2 Year manufacturer warranty

Box contents:
- Quick Installation Guide
- DVI to VGA Adapter
- Mini Displayport to Displayport Adapter
- Power Lead (4 to 6 pin)
- Driver Disk

Suggest you check it's compatible with your machine before purchasing - read the power supply requirements and pin connectors.

Take care

Did you phone to ask them first before traveling ?

Unfortunately, I don't think the stock checker is very reliable.
I put my store's postcode in the website and it returned nothing - even though 2 were on the shelves in store!

Currys in Lisburn and Newtownabbey have them available to Reserve & Collect. None in Currys, Craigavon or PCWorld, Sprucefield.

The power requirements for these cards is very low, they likely would run fine on pretty much any power supply, the box 450w requirement is overstated

The PSU in the Dell XPS 420 is only 375 watts, that's quite a way short of the 450 watts stated as the minimum requirement for this card. Surely it can't run from that? The PSU will be going like a steam train trying to keep up.

That's peak power output, and it to be honest the current and efficiency is the most important thing alongside wattage. You get cheap 800w power supplies that can barely run one card and a cpu, and you can get high efficiency, high amp rail 500w psus that can run two.

PCWorld are usually crap for PC components, but this is actually a great deal if you can find one.

And why should PCWorld be banned? Sure alot of their things are bad value, but they also have loads of bargains - many of which I have bought after seeing them posted on here!

These are probably the most efficient gfx cards you can buy considering their power. They don't even need a power connector - they run off the motherboard. iirc, they draw under 70w.

Not a bad price but Sapphire's warranty is a joke....if you ever have a problem and need to RMA the card to Sapphire you will have to send the card oversea's as they have no UK handling for RMAs, if they have your card in stock they will send a replacement but if its not in stock you will have one long wait as they wait for stock before shipping a replacement, 4-6 weeks is a minimum before you receive any progress, then another wait for replacement.

1st year will be covered by PC World/Currys but 2nd is by manufacturer direct.

- 2X75 Watt 6-pin PCI Express power connector is required for CrossFireX™ system.
- 1X75 Watt 6-pin PCI Express power connector is required.
- Certified power supplies are recommended. Please refer to: http://support.amd.com/us/certified/power-supplies/Pages/listing.aspx
- 1024MBMinimum of system memory.
- Installation software requires CD-ROM drive.
- DVD playback requires DVD drive.
- Blu-ray™ / HD DVD playback requires Blu-ray / HD DVD drive.
- For an AMD CrossFireX™ system, a second same AMD Radeon™ graphics card, an AMD CrossFireX™ Ready motherboard and one AMD CrossFireX Bridge Interconnect cable per graphics card (optional) are required.
- To support 3 displays, one of the monitors has to support DisplayPort.
- 450 Watt Power Supply is required.

Do I need an AMD motherboard then or am I totally missing the point...? :|

No, you just need a motherboard with a PCI slot.
