This week only deal at Overclockers for the XFX Double Dissipation Edition.

Good price for the 280, which is why I posted but thought I might as well share the others simultaneously.

Shared Via The HUKD App For Android.

These come with a special warranty unlike at other retailers.

"After months of discussion OcUK and XFX have come to a special agreement which in short means the following for customers buying from OcUK:

48hr Advanced RMA swap out service by OcUK
Removal of stock cooler allowed
2 year warranty with OcUK"

Once you add postage these come to about the same price as everyone else.

Example

Sapphire R9 280 £159.98 I would pick this over a XFX. Also 2 Year warranty.

Well do you have experience of this particular models? Not older cards but these actual models before you(like this other guy in my deal thread a few days back) start posting such comments?

Fixed that for you. As I pointed out in the previous XFX R9 290 from OCUK thread (link), this is no longer true. Here is an actual review of this R9-280 DD:

(BTW, I nominate that site for some of the worst graphs ever!)

A lesson for any companies though: once acquired a bad reputation (in this case for poor coolers) takes a long time to overcome even after the original issue is no longer true.
