how much better is this compared to the 5850 from OCUK?
#2
I think it's a lot better... it's a lot better than a 5870 as well, it just uses quite a bit more power so need a good PSU to run it!
#3
amazing deal, doesn't add to my basket though?
#4
hmm that's weird. I ordered one not long ago and worked fine, just keep trying and they might see the glitch. I spotted the deal this morning but there were none in stock so I kept checking back and found that I could order it tonight which was an amazing price.
#5
doest work, cant buy... Site suggests they had one.
#6
ok, it does let you add to basket it you select a bundle. Doubt you will get it, but worth a try...
#7
think I must've got very lucky with this one then!
#8
Only works if you add with a bundled item and then there is another £9.30 postage. Needs to be edited in OP. Voted cold.

Much better, check this chart of relative performance of graphics cards.


http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/NVIDIA/GeForce_GTX_580/27.html


Orderd, hope I get one!


Same card elsewhere - http://www.microdirect.co.uk/home/product/46944/Sparkle-GeForce-GTX-480-1536MB-GDDR5-PCI-E-2-0?source=googleps - £348.98

Even with shipping and the extra item will be just under a £200 saving.

Fantastic deal, ordered one (got the cheapest bundle, otherwise couldn't add to cart). Not sure they'll fulfill it, but I hope so :D lets just hope people stick to ordering 1 each..

That comparison the GTX 580 mate, not the 480. Similar performance though, much stronger than a 5850. Runs hot, but my room is freezing anyway! :D

Lol fair enough, one would be about right for me, any more then that would be overkill. Not getting my hopes up though, they'll probably cancel the order :(

Did you even click the link?, it has a graph of all graphics cards and them in order of how well they perform, the % is the only thing that is relative to the 580. The graph is very useful to see which card is better.

However here is the GTX 480 relative one http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/NVIDIA/GeForce_GTX_480_Fermi/32.html however it is not as useful in my opinion as a smaller range of graphics cards compared.

You can get a GTX 480 from £250 at Scan etc so not quite the £200 saving that someone stated.
The GTX 580 at £400 looks poor value for only ~10% more performance; as is usually the case at the high end.
A tri-SLI GTX 480 setup can pull over a kilowatt at the wall under load. It will also idle at about 280W which would mean if you left it on 24/7 it would cost you about £25 a month just idling. Ouch

mine says "being prepared" - seems they're sending the adapter (i.e the other part of the bundle) first and then the card, that's the impression I'm getting (not 100% sure though). There's a link to an invoice and it only has the adapter on it. GTX 480 seems to be "temporarily out of stock."

mine says being prepared, it's gone throuh all stages (payment , validation, preparation, forwarding). received phone call from pixmania validation team department aswell.
but they didn't take money yet.
in my account shows other part of bundle ready for dispatch (with no date yet), but sadly no GPU included yet :(

fingers crossed this will work :)

Got a good feeling about this..mine shows the GTX 480 as being ready to be dispatched =D

we will see how it goes, they pre-allocated (pre-authorisation) amount to pay in my bank account (but wrong amount, i mean £1 more, but who cares if i'll get this bargain GPU :) )
so, fingers crossed boys :)

I e-mailed them to ask about my order (I ordered only the GPU when it was available, with no extras in a bundle) and they said that it is already prepared for shipment and they'll send me another mail with a tracking number when they've dispatched it. On the website it says 'Your package is in the process of being prepared by our logistics department and will be sent as quickly as possible.' Anyway, there's one in stock now which is "As Good As New" for only £112.04 so grab a good deal if you trust their description!

Do not ever contact the company when there is a possibility it is a misprice. You are just brining it to their attention, you could now have cost us all the gpu.

After you emailed them my order changed to

Is that the GPU? or just the accessory?

Think you will find you are wrong. The Invoice will say gpu and the accesory but the gpu will have a 0 for quantity.

Doubt they would ship you one when the person who orderd first is yet to get confirmation of them shipping theirs.
