nice deal, perfect htpc card

you so dont need the recomended 400W power supply for it tho, in case anyone was thinking they had to upgrade...

how many 12v rail 6pins (if any) this need? anyone know?

None, I believe.

Good price for this card, voted hot.

then why the PSU requirement?

How does this compare to an 8800GT? Cos my fans sounding a bit loud!

I can remove it if you want to .

I have just copied this part from Sapphire's website.I am sure branded 350W would be enough - the rating (max.Wattage) for the card is below 60.

It will be slower than 8800gt (10-20% I guess)..and certainly much quieter

Yes.. but will hard decode HD content due to chipset onboard! Which means you can pair it up with a basic processor and presto done!

i am looking for a new card for my pc in front room i have a 8800 gts oc but was thinking of geting this or a 4770 and useing the 4770 in this pc and the 8800 in the new pc ??

noodledoodle;5450136

Why not? Power supplies on pre-built systems are only designed to power the system they came with, the PCI-E slot can provide up to 75W itself so it's not exactly negligable extra power if you're upgrading from integrated graphics.

So will the 8800GTS.

Hi, would there be any issues in using two of these cards in a dual-monitor set-up ? not planning on using it for hardcore gaming but some amateur photo editing as well as watching blueray/hd video.

You can use one card for dual monitor output you dont need two.:thumbsup:

Can somebody confirm, the op has put crossfire power supply requirements but it doesn't look possible to crossfire this as the heatsink looks to cover where the crossfire connector would be?

Thank-you so much. I have been lppking for something to replace a leaf-blower like XFX7600GT in TheWife's PC down in the livingroom.

is it worth getting this to replace my 512mb 8600gts? would it be a noticeable difference? just for a bit of gaming...

Does the HDMI out carry the 5.1 audio also?

Thanks, should I use this to replace my 8500GT in my HTPC then? Hmm. :oops:

perfect card for me if only it wasent a dual slot. nice find though

fathazza;5450057

nice deal, perfect htpc card


A perfect HTPC card would be low profile, but this is still a great card for the price.

And you don't need anywhere near a 400w PSU to use this, 300w would be fine.

[SIZE=2][FONT=Arial]Can anyone recommend a passively cooled card with similar spec but with the following:[/FONT][/SIZE]

[SIZE=2][FONT=Arial]I/O Output: 2 x DL-DVI-I and 1 x HDMI (i.e. no vga)[/FONT][/SIZE]

I dont have figures but I would expect no major benefit
Old card is mid range game card of previous generartion
New card is next gen HTPC oreintated passivly cooled , therefore underclocked

It previous card is too noisey than maybe, but there ahve been some amzing deal on this site recently
and I would hold off.

Also if you can upspend to £70 ish you get a whole lot more gaming horse power OMHO

Always a good reference this...]tom's hardware graphics card hierarchy chart...suggests (based on only recommending upgrades to jump 3 levels in the chart or more for a noticeable difference) that yes 5 jumps in the chart (from 8600GTS to HD 4670 level would make it worthwhile!

I agree with it being a bit overkill for a HTPC card. You will get cards a lot cheaper that will do a good job with that. I just bought a 8400gs which takes the strain from the CPU with DVXA, that cost me under £18 from Play. Still a nice card though

The difference will be quite huge actualy, especialy if you play newer games (2007 onwords and use higher resolution than 1024x768)
Although many manufacturers decided to clock 4670's [email protected], this Saphire is NOT underclocked - check reference board.That's why it's called ultimate

you can change the fan on your 8800GT and it should help reduce the noise a lot and cool it better. A lot of people have done that to there card.

Only if you want to play games through it. Something I have thought about, but I have a 360 for that so opted against it.

The memory on this card is actually underclocked to 1.746GHz effective but it make very little performance difference compared to reference,

This is 3 jumps up from my ageing X1900XT. I could be tempted...

is that in performance aswell? I have the same card and am sorely tempted if it has the performance!

Ordered and seems they are now out of stock!

I bought one of these and returned it as I wasn’t happy with the GPU temps (95+) in my case which has minimal airflow. There’s no point in buying a fanless VGA card if you have to increase the noise of the case fans to compensate.

I prefer to buy a stock card and add a Thermalright V2 VGA cooler to which I can add a silent 80cm fan running at ~600 rpm. That’s what I did with my HD 3850 although I used the installed heatsink on that card as it was a high quality copper unit. The fan was silent and the GPU was very cool and that’s a card that required a 6 pin power connector.
You don’t tend to see HD 4670 cards with such good heatsinks fitted so you probably need to upgrade it if going down that road. My HD 4670 arrived yesterday so I’m going to see how I get on with it before installing the V2.

Thanks for the heads up on this, does anyone know if they do a more powerfull card in this range?

does this work as well as a fan?

allornothing;5452976

No. A graphics card allows you to output moving images from your PC to a suitable monitor otr television whilst a fan is a device to circulate air. If you are wanting to cool yourself down I would definitely recommend that you get a fan and not a graphics card. ;-)

allornothing;5452976

It's supposed to do, but it doesn't appear to do a good enough job apparently, unless you have good airflow in your case. See Agharta's post (#36) above.
