Pretty high end card, finally coming down to the price range that makes it viable. Was considering a 5770 but for the extra 30 quid or so, surely this is better.

Don't forget about the free delivery option for scan forum members!!

Since this is my first post, I dont really want it to be a rubbish one, so if its cold, please let me know why and I'll try and take it off :)
#2
remember that scan has an interesting take on the warranty. if it breaks within 2 years and they cant fix or replace, they decide how much of a refund you get. it wont be the full amount...
#3
Good Price. Voted hot.

Card is on par with Nvidia GTX285, and its about 80% of the speed of a 5850 for about 70% of the price,
so nice performance/£.

If I didn't have a 5850 allready I would be tempted.

thats not good,they should refund full amount,the next time i need to upgrade my graphics card i will call them & ask about warranty if they say they dont refund in full while still under warranty then i wont buy from them.

Good post. Heat added.
#7
heat & rep :)

these things just didn't really make sense at launch price, but at this sort of money they surely do.

good deal
#11
How does this compare to 4870?
#12
5830 a bit quicker, about 5-10% on average. Considering the 4870 was £100 or less before being taken off the shelves, its still expensive imo, but a hot deal compared to other prices.
#13
cold for me as scan is very bad in dealing with warranty claims
#14
This model actually draws MORE power than the 5850 in some cases. If you want a plenty fast card that saves on the power bill a bit (and is a lot cheaper to start with) consider a 5770. They are plenty fast enough for most people! :thumbsup:

You can buy a Nintendo Wii for less than this.

another thing scan do, is give you an OEM device even though it is in full retail package and not tell you its OEM
(1yr warranty instead of 3) i got stung on my logitech G5 gaming mouse. Also a mother board that broke they would not give me a refund but a credit note!!! only reason i go is cus its down the road. One the birhg tside the Queues dont seem as long anymore waiting to pay for your stuff on a weekend.

Quick question. I have a graphics card with dvi and vga connections. The vga is connected to my monitor and i bought a dvi to hdmi 15 metre cable, which goes from the back of the graphics card to my hdtv, via the hdmi slot. This gives me picture from the computer on my tv but no sound, cos dvi doesnt carry sound.

Now, if i was to buy this graphics card and then got a dvi to hdmi adapter/converter and use it on my existing cable, on its dvi end, and then plugged it into the hdmi slot of the graphics card, would that then enable the cable to also carry sound as well as picture to my hd tv or is there something missing in the cable and i will have to buy another 15 metre cable (hdmi to hdmi this time ofcourse)?

Thank you in advance.

Also, whats better, ATI or Nvidia? Or the main differences? Or is it like comparing windows to apple?
#19
These new GPU's don't seem like much to get excited about, equal to 4890 in benchmarks yet more expensive and a generation newer??

It's more like comparing apples to oranges really, and assuming you connected the motherboards S/PDIF to the graphics card it would supply sound yes.
#21
I love my 5850 but I already want more performance after mere months.
Can't overclock it any further without flashing the bios.

(Lol, just got the box out to get my serial number and noticed I got two copies of Dirt 2 with the card, should have sold one when it was worth more)

Unfortunately your DVI to HDMI cable will be redundant. ATI cards have an inbuilt sound card onboard their graphics cards. This sound is output throught the HDMI port, or if the card only has DVI ports by using their supplied DVI/HDMI adapter. A standard DVI to HDMI cable won't carry the sound signal that the ATI cards can output. Ebay has 15 metre HDMI to HDMI cable for £10.79 which will replace your exisitng cable.

As for which is best between ATI & Nvidia, I have Nvidia for its stero 3D capability but ATI cards are typically cheaper and faster unless you can pick up specific nvidia bargains. I've heard some people complain about ATI driver problems but it's not something I've encountered problems with.

So usually I'd recommend ATI as they are priced well from the cheapest to mid range (like this) to the more expensive cards.

But...

With all the talk of 3D bluray just around the corner, any old dual core and a fairly cheap Nvidia GT240 (£70-ish - edit: £53.99 @Eclipse computers) is able to power a PC based 3D bluray system. It's still nearly £1,000 for the TV, but Nvidia's lead in 3D stereo gives it added value for those who think they may be interested in 3DTV.

However the equivelant power of the ATI 5830 is the GTX465 and that costs some £50 more than the 5830. If you'll never buy a 3DTV or you aren't interested in 3D stereo gaming, then you'd always go for the ATI.

Homebase tried this on with me once, but if you know your rights, they can't do this.

Under UK trading laws, a device should be sold with an expected lifespan. If the warranty is two years, there is a hard line fix of that lifespan (and could be argued longer) of those two years. If you can show that the card failed when under normal use (the burden after 6 months is on you, prior to 6 months it's on Scan) then they should replace, fix or refund.

The problem with graphics cards are that they are easily overclocked. So a burden of proof on your side to show that you have not overclocked it is pretty hard. Scan will probably use this to their advantage as you say, and the burden is on you to show that you have not.

However, a quick £20 flutter into a small-claims court will usually make any company such as Scan respond positively (costs more to send a lawyer). You will need to prove that you have tried to resolve the issue with the company. (A recorded letter to the company for example, and 8/10 this will be enough wihtout the need for small claims).

Any questions, contact your trading standards office. They are very helpful bunch.

ATI are going to be releasing 3D drivers for their newer cards i believe. Some ATI 3D setups have been done allready, though NVIDIA are ahead of them on this one ...
