this is overclocked from default core speed of 600 to 660 and default ram speed of 1500 to 1600.

how do you get 5% off?

Hot, looks like a nice card. Like to see how would it compare to other branded 8800GT and warrentys

It comes in better then the 8800GTS cards (320MB & 640MB versions);
8800GT Review

Voting cold though, as this is pre-order, therefore no gurantee that you'll get it when it ways you will!!

I've just had my 8800GT BFG OC dispatched from play.com for £159.99.

However once you include quidco, I got it for £153 all in. Now that was a great deal considering the brand of the card and 10-year warranty!

Also to the OP: My quidco tracked at 4% rather than the 2% you have quoted.

All 8800GT's are currently using the same reference board, in the same factory (Foxconn). The only difference is the bios (which can be flashed. mine now runs at 2000/700 instead of 1800/600!!!) & the cooler.

Amazon uk also has a cheep bfg one for pre-order (£163 delivered), and it's the OC version if you don't fancy clocking your own card.

Just because it's a pre-order, does not mean it's not a bargin...

Am i correct in saying the Zotec cards are clocked higher out of the box anyway ?

The default clock for 8800GT's are 600Mhz and this is clocked to 660Mhz by default.

yep and the ram is at 1600 instead of default 1500.

are these powered solely from the PCIE slot?
suspended#11
no, you will need a 6pin pci-e power cable, which will come with the card which you can connect to molex cables.

the 1600Mhz ram is the standard speed for all 8800gt's

Fastest ones run at 2000Mhz, all cards as stated by djfluff are identical in spec & parts at the moment as only one manufacturer is actually making them, therefore all cards come with memory rated at 2000mhz anyway, despite being constrained in the bios to 1600 or 1700 or 1800, depending on how the "brand" wishes to market the boards.

Therefore all cards should be able to match the fastest ones out there 700core/1700shader/2000memory, jsut by flashing to another card manufacturers bios.

hence my Inno3d card which i got cheap from ebuyer, runs happily with a flashed bios at the 700/1700/2000 shader settings..BARGAIN!

and no you still require a pci power connector or 2 x molex to power the cards.

If you are in no need to buy a card urgently then it's probably worth waiting a few weeks at which point these cards should drop c£20 once the demand has been dealt with. It could drop even further once Nvidia face stiff competition from Ati's new cards which are released in just over two weeks time.

Given that these Zotac cards are not even in stock right now I'd tread with extra caution.

You might be right, but maybee not... These cards were released as a pre-empive strike on ATI's new cards. I don't really see anyone selling these for £130 for some time, unless they totally restructure their prices, reducing the old 8800gts's to £100 (as they are slower).... but we shall see.
#15
Of course it was a pre-emptive strike on Ati. That can be seen by the fact that Nvidia were clearly not ready to launch these cards given how much stock was put into the market. It's quite farcical tbh and the only reason why Nvidia did it was to steal some thunder from ATi. I don't doubt the 8800GT will be a better card, performance wise, than the new HD3800 series but ATi will price their cards very competitively.

I'm not saying it's not a good deal, however remember that this is for a preorder where play are not expected to get stock in until 19th November - the same day that Ati launch their cards! I'm just pointing out the facts to the uninformed.

When these cards were first announced the price was expected to be between £130-£140 which they were on some pre-order sites but mysteriously once these cards got nearer to release date they all shot up in price £30-40, so I feel the next big batch of these to hit the UK will be nearer to £130-£140 price, as the shops seem to have added a pretty large mark up with the first batch, but you pays yer money and you takes yer chance.

Is it wrong that the only reason I'm not buying this one is that I dislike the horrible cliché firey dragons/robots etc that are plastered on most graphics cards these days and I'm holding out for something with a bit more subdued design? :P And I don't even have a window on my PC to see the damn thing!

Voted hot deal regardless.

[SIZE=1]Not wrong, but a little weird perhaps :p - it's only a picture after all ;-). Have to admit, I'm with you on this though :roll:![/SIZE]

[SIZE=1]Asus' packaging/cards are usually better though - e.g. see this Asus 8800GT. I've an Asus AX800XT (X800XT PE basically), which isn't too bad either.[/SIZE]

Christ sakes, why even post or vote? It's a hot deal because it's a great price for a great product, the pre-order part shouldn't make a difference.

And of course it's faster than the GTS cards, what else did you expect?

This is true on every card BUT the 8800GT - nVidia have realised that they can overclock them to 2,000 MHz on the memory, but that they WILL die VERY quickly, as the memory just isnt up to the task, and the 2,000 MHz memory models have different memory modules on them.
#23
nonsense the memory is clearly rated as 2000mhz just take your heatsink of and have a look at the memory chips!! they are the same on all the cards.

I believe they may be adding a different fan to the 2000mhz cards but that is purely i believe to make them look like it is worth extra maney for the same card!

The point is some overclock it higher then other and backed by number of years warranty then others. So you don't have to overclock it with peace of mind from the warranty.

I've always had excellent service from kustompcs :thumbsup:

They even got a caddy in I wanted one time (icybox 2.5" usb2/esata > sata caddy plus the optional dock to fit a 3.5" bay in a desktop)

I have a Geforce 7950 GX2 (1GB) at the moment would it be worth me upgrading at the moment, ive been looking at the 8800 GTX or would this be ample for me.
Any techo out could answer me this.

Cheers

I have pre-ordered a similar card for £134.90 inc postage from here

IMO, I wouldnt upgrade unless you really want to play with DX10, there is some perormance to be had but only if your monitor can output at resolutions past 1600*1200

check thses benchmarks

http://www.firingsquad.com/hardware/nvidia_geforce_8800_preview/page11.asp

if you have a nice 22" widescreen which you really want to look nice go for it (8800GTS with 640MB RAM or this GT your call) but personally I would stick with the GX2 for one more generation then sell it for the next line of dx10.1 cards
#29
Cheers matey i do have a nice 22" Samsung Screen so i will take your advice and wait for the next batch. cheers mate.:thumbsup:

Sorry play.com not this time :giggle:

I swapped my SLI GTS 8800 setup for a single 8800gt, and the performance falls within the term "comparable" i.e. within about 500 points on 3d mark06, and better on games which use/need more graphice memory e.g. stalker. So i disagree, id sell my 7950 while i had the chance to get some wonga..

[SIZE=1]Just to add to [/SIZE][SIZE=1][COLOR=black]reidy-[/COLOR][/SIZE][SIZE=1][COLOR=black]'s[/COLOR][/SIZE] [SIZE=1]reply, checkout this benchmark comparison at Tom's Hardware - your card & a GTS 640 are neck-and-neck for overall fps. No GT, but it's only slightly better than a GTS anyway. As reidy- says, save up for the next gen DX10 card.[/SIZE]
#32
Deal seems to be over, the pre-order is no longer available.

On a positive note for those that had managed to pre-order the card - once the BFG 8800GT OC was removed from pre-order on the site mine got dispatched within a couple of days, so you may have this card before the 19th November. The BFG OC card was stated for availability on 19th November and mine has been delivered this morning by play.com - great service!

[SIZE=1]No, it's £154.99 including the £5 off code & excluding 2% Quidco (not 4%). Not sure if Play calculate Quidco before or after VAT though? [/SIZE]
