Nice as long as they dont up the price for the pre-orders as well...

march 10th, the day before the 9800 series is released.

Wouldnt expect much from a value 8800GT but at that price who can argue.
Voted hot.

an extra £20 will get you this leadtek version which is also a retail boxed unit and is a slightly different flavour!

Leadtek GeForce 8800 GTB OC 512MB GDDR3 HDTV/Dual DVI (PCI-Express) - Retail

What the B in GTB signifies I have no idea, however the overclock version appeals to me. That and the Leadtek branding definitely warrants consideration I think.

Offer only on for this week so get in there quick if this draws your attention.

From forums.overclockers.co.uk/sho…868 :

"Overclocked model or GTB is...

- GeForce 8800 GT core running at 680MHz
- Shader Clock Speed of 1700MHz
- 512MB GDDR3 Memory running at 1800MHz"

Nice price for a 8800GT, but I expect the price of 8800s will drop once the 9800s are out.

Once they hit £100....... :whistling:

And an extra £6 on top of that gets you a "Gigabyte GeForce 8800 GT OC 512MB"

You can just go on and on and on and on with graphics cards :oops:

Or just get the Play one and overclock it yourself. Use something like RivaTuner and enable driver-level overclocking - I overclock my laptop GPU from 350MHz to 400MHz. Makes quite a difference.

9800gt's gonna be interesting. 9600gt is snapping at the heals of the 8800gt without much trouble, despite being technically 'limited. Possible sub £100 8800gt's thanks to that.

People, we can go on and on about this card is better and costs only £20 pounds more, and that card is even better and costs only £40 more, and so on...

Looks like a good deal to me. Question is how well will it run crysis, and what sort of pc do you need behind it ?

Fair comment.

Although personally I'd rather be told by someone in the know if I could get a significantly better card for only a fiver more :?

Possible, but unlikely. While the 9800GT will be quick, the 9600GT is slower than the 8800GT while priced at the same level; if anything, this will maintain the price of the 8800GT (they're normally £150, so £130 will likely be the revised value).


The main advantage of the 9600GT is the reduced power consumption; the 8800GT is still a fair but quicker, and considering the 8800GT and 9600GT are the same price at Play, I know which I'd go for.

From tomshardware.co.uk/Nvi…tml

9800GT uses the same chip as 8800GT but at a higher clock and shader frequency, i.e. an overclocked 8800GT. 9800 will use newer version of Forceware also.

Anyway, £125 is a good price and I would vote hot. But I would rather more interested to see how much overclock potential it can deliver. Basically that seems like a BBN (built by nvidia) card and so It should able to achieve 700/1700/2000 clock, like other brand such as (overclockers.co.uk/sho…008)

Even if it is a nVidia reference it's basically as good as other non overclocked ones, but there's no telling - it might be a (less known) branded one.

Oh, and it's PCI-E 2.0, not PCI as stated in the title. Also known as PCI-Express [x16] 2.0

Are PCI-E 2.0 cards backwards compatible with 1.0 Mobos? I remember hearing somewhere that some ATI cards were, but Nvidia cards had problems.

If it wouldn't, would anyone be able to advise what the current best value PCI-E 1.0 Card is? My mobo is a Gigabyte 965GM-S2 (Intel 965).

Can not be all bad also a "super plus" 1gig ram version of the card on play.com

play.com/PC/…tml

:whistling:

A 512mb version will do most people fine unless you run the really high resolutions and filters

Anyone get one of these yet??

review would be nice
