Good price, £40+ cheaper than other retailers.
#2
You haven't included delivery which is at least 4 quid more, so it's only really about £16 cheaper than elsewhere but It will be obsolete by the time it arrives anyway so why bother

Overclockers.co.uk Reviews

Says it all really. Even the top review which gave 5 stars shows they only care about there long term customers. Also there were over 5000 reviews with an average of 2 something before it all got wiped for some reason.

It's a great price, just pray to god you don't have to RMA it!

Not voting on this one as it really doesn't deserve cold as the deal is good.
#4
I've ordered from overclockers only a couple of times but never had any problem, except for their delivery charges.
#5
Yeah, you can get free delivery if you get 250 posts on there forums, scan on the other hand only requires only 20 on the hexus forums.

Smokin hot price, but never really liked Overclockers to be honest.

Gotta agree with you there. I used Overclockers almost exclusively from 2003 to 2007, then things just went from bad to worse. I gather people have had problems even before 2007. I did buy something from them in 2009 which noone else stocked. That turned out to be a mistake as I had to threaten legal action before they would live up to the Distance Selling Regulations.

Cold because I suspect the price of this card will be falling due to the new nVidia competition, and the tech is almost a year old now.

Hmm can't get the edit button to work...

FYI, postage is £9 on this which means it's barely cheaper than other places anyway.

Is this card worth getting? Im not too clued up on graphic cards and need something that will play anything I throw at it for the next few years to come.Dont thi ill be buying from overclockers but from a post on here I saw a while back they had the gigabyte overclocked card it with the cooler/fan for £230 ish so will prob go for that one as im not too keen on overclockers.

Based on that logic, all technology is obsolete the moment you buy it. It's certainly out of date, but then all technology that's released is out of date...
#12
Would advice against this, as XFX are terrible when it comes to RMA's, from past experience with them. On top of that the last two XFX cards I had, both had build issues e.g. heatsink not correctly mounted, leading to overheating..
#13
This card is under priority premium warranty meaning that you only deal with ocuk if the card fails and they provide a full replacement.

Unless you need support for three monitors, I would suggest getting an NVIDIA GTX 460. Roughly 80% of the performance of the 5850 but about about 65% of the price.

Fantastic price! If only I had enough money at the moment! Hot despite my lack of funds lol

Does the NVIDIA GTX 460 support audio through the hdmi socket though?I need a card to output through the hdmi so I can use it on my plasma

Yes, and no. It supports pcm sound through HDMI and in future should support bitstream over HDMI (driver upgrade).

As someone posted before with the GTX 460 you need to check the cooling is all there on the early batches.

Yeah I saw that post about the cooler not being included with some retail palit cards and it put me right off the 460 card,I might just take the plung and go for the ati 5850 just to be on the safe side.

Been a member of overclockers forums for years now. So get free delivery.
Voting this deal hot as nothing comes close to it at the moment
Im going to hold of for now and currently running crossfire 4850's whilst this would probably out perform them both on its own (not a great deal) its not worth me spending the case when i can sit and wait for 5890 to come down to this kinda price £250 i think is my buying mark!
Besides there no games that i currently play that struggle with my current set up

If you want to avoid the mess that is overclockers then Aria have there own badged 5850's (they are actually VFX make) for the same price £199.74.


Aria's offer is probably the reason why overclockers have dropped there price, so that they can match Aria.


Note Aria have also got 5870's and 2 other ATI cards also very cheap, just forgot which ones they are. Ordered one of the 5870's from Aria last week hence the reason why I know what make they really are :)

OC's well, aparently :)

"Here's a surprise: the GTX 460 supports bitstream audio over HDMI for Dolby True HD and DTS-HD Master Audio. I believe that's a first for Nvidia graphics cards, and it should make the GTX 460 a nice candidate for an HTPC system"

Do you have a link stating that the bitstreaming capability will only be available in a future driver update? All forums and reviews state it does bitstreaming and retail boxes state this too. Thanks.

ATI has dropped the price of the 5830. Unless you need that 5850 right now then I'd give it a week or two as it's likely there will be more 5850 offers coming that might compete with this one. Just a suggestion since Nvidia have stirred up competition and are making ATI shift the prices.

The unfortunate rub is that the current driver doesn’t support it. We were able to get Dolby Digital/DTS across HDMI, along with multi-channel LPCM, but no Dolby TrueHD or DTS-HD. And even when the feature is enabled, it’ll take buying a copy of CyberLink’s PowerDVD 10 playback software to support it. Frankly, this is a bummer for anyone who made the jump to PowerDVD 9 as AMD and Intel enabled bitstreaming in their graphics products and is now considering a Fermi-based board. We’d really like to see a patch to make this possible in PowerDVD 9.


So the HD stuff isn't there yet.

I don't understand why OcUK get so much flak on here, I've never had a problem with their service and I have had to deal with their customer service several times. First time was to return some RAM that didn't perform as I had hoped, no problems at all, got refunded within a few days, the second time was to return a 24" display about 10 months after I bought it. Rather than making me send it back to the manufacturer they came and collected mine and gave me a new one. I know there is a whole community around OcUK much like other sites like eBuyer and Scan have these days but as a retailer of computer components I can't fault them.
#25
I've never had a problem with them but my work colleague did. He bought a Grade B monitor from them, after a week he called them as it never arrived, he said what's happening, they said we don't have any stock, he said ok when will I be getting a delivery. To cut a long story short he was told that there wasn't any more stock so he could just get his money back, they didn't apologise and it didn't appear they were going to notify him. The customer representative from OCUK was literally arrogant, my colleague was polite all the time, he was amazed they seemed to treat him with contempt, so even though I haven't had a problem with them I made a point of making sure I don't buy from OCUK again.
#26
Its a good price for these branded cards and the price they are on the 5970 from HIS is stonking, I'd post a deal but unsure how....

Also there are cheaper 5850's available elsewhere but unbranded with lesser warranty...
