Absolutely brilliant card. I run mine at 1680x1050 and all the games run great on high quality settings. I upgraded from a GTS8800 and what a difference. For the money it's great value.

Hot from me too, can't believe how quickly GXF prices are falling at the minute.

ive voted hot but their 4870 is a better buy if you ask me...

You mean the 1Gb one, don't you?

Sapphire ATI Radeon HD4870 1GB = £137.99

i meant the 512mb at £106 actually, i dont think paying 25% extra for the gtx260 is worth it, but thats just me...

"Golden Sample" ...

its been this price for ages the same as the 250gtx so not really hot and its free delivery for everyone forum members with over 50 posts get a next day delivery.

good card but please for those considering note that this card (unlike other 260s) doesnot have auto 2d 3d switching, so it will be in 3d all the time.

Theres a bios update on gainward site that apparently solves this problem.
