They were available for £20 more about a week ago.

Novatech is good with these things & would've mentioned 'no stock' or similar if they weren't getting any in.

Anyway, we shall have to wait & see, & it's better to place an order at this price than at a higher price in the future :thumbsup:

Voted hot. I bought the same one from novatech awhile ago. See the comments left in the review section. The one you get is probably not the one in the image. I got one with a HDMI connection and dual slot cooler (made by Palit).

is the 8800GS any good?

It's not bad, but this one is better.

ok the reason i ask is i recently brought an XFX 8800GS for my new machine and i seem to get very high FPS in game. i was very pleased with it.

Can't you get 1gb graphics cards for cheaper than this?

Found an XFX geforce 9400GT 1gb for £41.33

i thought the 8000's were a better card than the 9000's but im not a tech head

That's quite a poor card gaming-wise, & the nearest 9000 series card to this would be a 9800GT.

Memory amount also doesn't matter - it's mainly the card's technology & memory speed+type which are more important when comparing graphics cards.

WOOT! This is a bargain! I just snapped one up, thanks a lot!

8800GT > 9600GT

more than 512mb of RAM is only beneficial super high resolutions...above 1680x1050, with the 9400GT, you're barely gonna get a current game playable at that resolution, never mind the need for the extra 512mb of memory.

Do you mean the £50 one from PCWorld? This is quite a bit better, but as long as the former suits your needs.

An 8800GT is the same as a 9800GT. They just renamed them because they sell better this way. Since a 9400 is less than 9800 it stands to reason it's not as good. Do not assume more RAM is a better because you need to consider also the processing power of the GPU. You might consider a 8800GT with 1Gb better than a 8800GT with 512MB but in reality it will probably be slightly slower due to the increased latency in addressing the extra RAM.

Do not just pick any old random graphics card because it has 1GB or 2GB because this is a common ploy to sell pretty naff graphics cards to the uninformed. Just ask in any old tech forum if you are not sure or do the legwork yourself and dig up some benchmark reviews.

If they get more stock then this is a good deal.

lol yeah its the £50 one, im running a amd quad core 2.2 4gb ram and the 8800GS seems ok to me i get about 90FPS on Cod5 i think thats ok, well it does me.

Got an estimated delivery date of Monday 23 February 2009

The 8800GT is one of the best performing cards for the price, it may be last generation (the 9000 series can't be considered a new generation as most of them are rehashed 8 series cards) but it is still an excellent performer.

V tempted, just brought and new flash gun and lens tho

How mcu h would I get for a 1950Pro?

Not all come with HDMI. It just happened that mine did. Pot Luck.

I phoned them first and asked what they had (this was awhile ago). He basically went and got the box and then described to me the one in the picture. (no hdmi) I think they are all mixed brands; Palit, EVGA etc.

EDIT: I just read the spec and it does say HDMI

I take it you cant ask for one with HDMI? My novatech is right by me so I pick me gear up.

still £20 too expensive imho.
i got the 8800GS for £45 nearly a year ago.. was a better deal (not sure you'll still find any of those though).

is it worth getting the 9800gtx+ by paying another 60 quid extra? coz i was thinking of upgrading to this one from my rusty 8500gt.

I'd skip the novapoo one will be the cheapest oem one they can get.

Does anyone know about power consumption on these cards?... my son has a Packard Bell Imedia 2770, it has a ATI X1600SE 512Mb PCI-E card, fitted, 1 x H-disk, 1 x DVDRW, TV tuner card, Media Centre 2005 edition, no other cards etc... and the PC has a 250W PSU.

I want to get better gaming performance but I dont want to upgrade the PSU... I was looking at reviews and was going to get an ATI 4670 which has good write-ups in PCPRO & elsewhere (as an all-rounder, not a true gaming card I know - they placed it on a par with 9600GT for most games), but still not sure on the power consumtion - it's hard to find out.

Any ideas on this card's consuption? or other recommendations?

I realise true gaming system have 400-500W psu's but I cant do that this time around.

No, if you're not a gamer.

If you're a gamer, & your PSU is up to it, I think a HD 4850+ for around the same price might be better?

Or, even a ]HD 4850 for £40 more.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Clarioner, I don't think the 250W PSU in the Packard Bell is going to be enough for this card. However, you might get away w/o upgrading the PSU with the HD 4670, as it doesn't require a 6pin PCI-E connector. Note that it's not guaranteed.

nvidia seems to have that physx engine but tbh, i dnt mind spending no more than £150 on a graphics card. so is there anything better?

btw, i am a gamer.

You might be able to get a HD 4870 for that kind of money. I'll post it if I find one :thumbsup:

Bought at this price 3 months back from Novatech(got cahshback too) after spending ages looking for a good deal arrived quick and was shocked to find they sent me the XFX alpha dog was £40 more everywhere else. The 9800GT is just a rebranding from the 8800GT and are virtually the same chip and in every benchmark are near identical.
]http//ww…688

I think what Novatech send you when you order their brand is just potluck mine did not have a dvi but the description on the page said it did.
The 8800GT is one of the best price/performance options out there Performance on average is better than the GS. Better than AMD HD4830 but under the HD4850 which are a £115+ Would recommend.

cool thanks man

Nice one, I paid £110 for an Asus HD4850 on Holiday when it was newly released. But thats a decent price for rip off UK :thumbsup: Can play Fear 2 demo with maxed out settings at 1080p res at a decent framerate.

£68.99 imo is still overpriced for old tech, for a about £20 more you can get a new HD4830 which offers; way more performance, lower idle power consumption and apparently can be easily overclocked to 4850's level (as it is essentially a cut down model) if you're into that kind of thing.

This couldn't be more true. Something most people seem to fail to understand.
