this was posted a few weeks ago for the price of £159.99, so at this price (the cheapest i have seen) it should help someone out!

Voted HOT, but I hate XFX's attitude to customer service which is "all customer are w*nk*s and we shouldn't help them ever".

Don't forget Ebuyer pretty much have the same attitude these days.

Great price for the card, but Ebuyer + XFX is the new worst combination you can get (title previously held by OCUK + OCZ).

Yeah I used to buy from Ebuyer, now I get most stuff from Amazon UK and I keep away from goods where I can't RMA them back to somewhere in the UK.

xfx isn't that bad but they are a foreign company(non uk) so they have similar rma practises to the likes of asus and if you go with a good etailer like scan who would deal with them directly you will be fine.

good price on a R9 280, got mine from a msi from OCUK last week, it also came with Radeon gold club reward ( 3 games some are ok like thief )
the 280 is not a bad budget card and capable of running everything i have thrown at it on Max & ultra settings:)

+ delivery makes that deal more expensive. That said, I'd rather go for the Powercolor card, and OCUK have improved their CS over the last couple of years.

Did they post that deal without including the cost of delivery?! Grrr...

i bought this card from aria 2weeks ago its fantastic. running watchdogs on high settings, i have no doubt it would run it on ultra but obviously the game is suffering some issues at the minute.

Really? My experience with XFX has only been positive. Hell, last time they even gave me an upgrade when their card messed up!

XFX? lolz avoid........................

Anyone who knows anything about graphics cards knows to avoid XFX, they are the WORST company to deal with for RMAs, customer service is a complete joke.

Are you in UK or US? From what I gather they do not deal with consumer directly in UK. You need to go through retailer you bought from. And in this case it is ebuyer. Last time I asked question in their forum and got reply that you only have 1 year warranty with ebuyer and then you need to deal with manufacturer (XFX, who then do not deal with consumer). You then are in a loop :/

Whoa. Do these things really need a 750w PSU? Think mine is 600w and I thought that was a little excessive for what I needed when I built my computer last year. Would like a new GPU, but not a new PSU as well.

I sort of miss the old 3D-FX cards. Remember them?

That's just what card manufacturers have to say to keep things safe, you can easily run this card with an i5 4670k with a 500W PSU safely!

Voted hot but I'm seconding what people have said about ebuyer, they screwed me out of a full refund for my faulty Corsair PSU (paid £66, got £35 back) which was still in warranty by 2 years and 3 months, would never buy from them again but obviously not everyone has had my experience.
#17
ebuyer haven't changed much.

I Had a faulty psu and problems with ebuyer's lack of c.s.

Corsair replaced my faulty psu and sent me a free usb stick, they also compensated me for a blown MB and Ram caused by the PSU.

I think you are right, after I posted this last night I did some investigating and from what I can gather even at full load this thing pulls approx 340+ Watts, so I suspect that as long as you don't have a box full of power-hungry cards, drives, neon lighting or whatever else, you'll probably be good to go. Probably not a good idea to buy two of them for cross-fire though!

Just use PCpartpicker.com .. create your build, you can even add fans, and then it will show you the amount of wats the PC build uses, after that, just add 50W on top to stay on the safe side so your PSU doesn't get fully used up, and you're set to go. 500W can accompany any high end build these days (as long as it isn't i7 + GTX 780 TI type of build), good luck with your PC, enjoy.

That's awesome, didn't know Corsair were so generous, will try to stick to them in the future.

Corsair sent me a new psu, usb stick and a cheque for £430.

Sounds good but it took months of complaining.

The psu destroyed my motherboard and ram and it is supposed to have features to prevent this.
