This is almost too cheap but I figured I'd give it a go and see if the right card arrives. You are getting a 280x for the regular 280 price!

Thankfully never had any issues with them, bought 2 x AMD 6950s two years ago from them and they're still going strong. If you do have any issue though the card does have a manufacturers warranty so you can just go straight to them.

These are the exact same card as Visiontek and Powercolor. Only the shroud is different on these cards. I have a Powercolor one a couple sapphire dualxs, gigabyte windforces. After the gigabyte these are my favourite cards. Sapphire coolers died in 2 months, these fans are still going strong and the card is not given much of a break. On 24/7, at 100% load.


Can't fault them.

agreed, good card good price bad company (pixmania) they might send a R7 260 as a replacement, and you'll spend the next year chansing them.

I didn't like the fact this needed a 750w psu, so I ended up going for the sapphire which only needed a 500w. So make sure your psu can power it. Also, the sapphire needs 850w to crossfire so god knows what the vtx needs if you wanted run it in crossfire.

Pixmania suck! I know, I've been on the receiving end of their customer service. Avoid!
#7
up to 188.78 :(
#8
They both draw the same amount of power, and use the same 6 + 8 pin pcie power connector setup. Maximum real consumption between 200 and 250w depending the hand you are dealt and whether you decide to undervolt.
#9
Looks like Pixmania ran out of stock, they are being sold by Krator now for £20 more.

Hopefully I'll still get mine and it will actually be the right card. I'm half expecting a 280 instead of the 280x but I'll remain optimistic!

I have the MSI version on a 600w PSU and had no problems. Cant see them differing that much

It arrived today, no problems, right card. Can't wait to get it in the PC assuming I have a spare 8 pin power connector.
