Although I don't normally recommend the 4730 as 4770 is more efficient if you have a PSU with a pci-e power connector but at £54 it has a lot of bang for your buck! So if your looking to replace an aging 9600gt or 8800gt then at this price its hard to beat.

HOT, only 10 in stock, hurry up.

is this really significantly better than an 8800gt? the 512mb version?

In simple terms no. It will work a little better on games the favor ATI cards and worse on some that favor nVidia. So if your 8800gt works stay with that.:thumbsup:

I wouldn't recommend the HD4730. It was designed as a stop gap when there weren't enough 40nm chips around to satisfy demand for the 4770. The 4730 is based on the older 60/55nm chips. This is more akin to a 4830 but runs at with a high clockrate. The high clock leads to heating/cooling and power consumption issues, it has two external PCIe power connector AFAIK.

Better? Faster yes, however uses lots of power, gets quite hot and is not the quietest of cards.

This was indeed a stop gap product when TSMC ran into fabrication difficulties on the 40nm chip. There were heat issues with the reference coolers designed supplied by ATI thats why most went with a better design. Some cards do come with twin 6 pin pci-e power requirements (not this one). However they do not require both to be used, some manufactures included this if people were using multi rail PSU to spread the load.

still capable graphic @ £54 delivered, in line with 9800gt and HD4830 so no competition really if you are on the budget.
