There are new AMD graphics cards due in less than two weeks so this is a time to tread carefully when buying. Unless you absolutely can’t wait I’d hold on until they have been released and benchmarked and see how they compare against the 8800 GT in performance and pricing.

Sorry guys, I know everyone is entitled to their opinion, but my deal was based upon the spec of the card compared to the price of other vendors in the UK.

And maybe the GTS outperforms the HD 2900, but show me a review or spec comparison where it beats the HD 2900 Pro?

Chz,

Great thing about 8800GT is that it use little least power. Which is what nvida and amd wants to aim for, good proformers and less power.

The GT trounces the 2900 XT, never mind the slower Pro.

And it's £20 cheaper.

You'd have to be crazy to buy the 2900 series, when the 8800GT is cheap and getting cheaper (close to £100 for such a smoking hot fast card is an absoluyte steal), and really the only option for anyone above entry-level.

The Pro is slower than the XT and the 8800 GT beats the XT so the Pro is onto a loser. Voted cold.

The 2900 is 156 quid, the above two are 170 and 180 respectively.
Im talking about someone who maybe has a budget of 150 and is stretching to 160 at the TOP.

These cards aren't in this range, so I rest my case, turn my deal to 0 degrees kelvin if you want, but I stand by my post!

*sigh*

Both the GPU and RAM clock speeds have been reduced on this "example" of the 8600GT.

And the benchmarks are referring to the driver set problems with the 2900 GPU series (OK, i admit, at the moment, the driver set is a bit flaky) but the 2900 will TROUNCE the 8600GT when the drivers are sorted in the next release from Ati.

More arguements please :) I love em!

Ehhm.. We were talking about 8800 GT's not 8600 GT's.

Also, all 8800gt's are currently manafactured by the same company, and are all seriously overclockable. 2000mhz \ 700mhz is achievable on the stock coolers, which makes them (roughly) as fast an 8800gtx .....

Hav'at ati fanboy!

It all boils down to choice as there really is not much in it! not what Nvidia-owners would have people think.

The net is a wonderful place for info these days & good reliable reviews are out there!
http://www.hexus.net/content/item.php?item=10002&page=1

Qoute from Hexus.net pro review.

Which £175 card is better. then? One could argue that NVIDIA's card has the slightly better performance (in our older games) but AMD's has a more-comprehensive feature-set - it's another case of swings and roundabouts. Whichever one you decide to buy - and there is no bad choice here - spending £175 buys you more technology than ever before, and, in our opinion, makes any cut-down card positioned at £150 (GeForce 8600 GTS OC) seem poor in comparison.

The HIS Radeon HD 2900 Pro 512MiB Limited Edition is a full-fat performance card with all the trimmings of R600's architecture. The SKU should help bolster Radeon HD 2900 sales and provides the consumer with more choice than ever before - it's just a shame that it wasn't released six months ago.


Best of luck

And of course, going back to the OP check this

http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=GX-160-SP&tool=3

overclockers don't sell "so-so" cards, and I couldn't help notice this comment;

"Reviewed by: Guidodakillapimp

Great solid sapphire build quality, silent enough on idle, but somewhat louder than my overpriced 8800 ultra on full chat. Flashed this £160 card with the sapphire XT bios, and turned it into an XT - great buy for the price......................great service again overclockers!"

Hmmmmmm.......... :D

You can tell when people are desperate they start quoting raw benchmarks. In certain benchmarks the Athlon X2 looks good against Core 2 duo but we all know how they compare in the real world.
The same goes for graphics cards; who cares how well this runs 3D Mark 05 which is a two year old benchmark!
