Very nice cards for the cash. Buy 2 and Xfire them if your board supports it, and you get better performance than a 4890 or 285!!

Wow, this seems like a fantastic deal to me. I just bought a GTX 260 - I might have considered paying a little extra for two of these, or maybe just settling with a single 4770 until the next generation cards are out and down to a reasonable price.

Ive got a HD 2600 XT at the moment is this card much better, i fancy getting a new card but a) dont have a clue and b) dont wat to spend maga bucks, would this fit my Dell XPS 420

Yea, I bought a 4870 just before these cards came out. If I had known, I would have waited and bought 2 of these instead. They produce less heat and use less power due to the 40nm fabrication.
Do you have an Xfire motherboard? If so I would try return or sell on the 260..

Yea, looks like that would be no problem. It uses 40w more than a 2600 XT at peak, but the XPS should be able to handle that. :thumbsup:

Is it a better card tho, if ther is not much in it its a waste of money for me.

It's aproximatly 4 times faster than your card :w00t:

Blimey !

So this card is No20 in the rankings and mine is 154 , hmm might get one , anything else for this sort of money i could look at ?

For £75-90 you could get a 4850 or a 4830 ( scan.co.uk/Ind…9-0 )
But these, allthough slightly faster, produce more heat and use more power, noise etc.
The 4770's are really overclockable too , if that's your thing

I don't think you can get a better card for the money at the moment.

Less noise and power is better for me

Thanks for the help, rep left

Just looking at the review on you tube

These cards are a steal at this price.
Very quick cards with massive overclocking potential due to them running very cool.
I tell you now, they wont be around long for this price...

Good deal.

Not in stock (also +shipping & handeling) , and highly doubtfull they will get back in at that price.
Kikatek have allways looked dodgy to me as well. Anyone ever used them?

They get terrible reviews online, reviewcentre.com/rev…tml

They're a bunch of jokers and post loads of low prices on items they don't stock but guess what, their prices for items that they do stock are rubbish. :roll:

That's what I thought. I allways discounted them when I was looking at internet prices.

Find me a trusted site that has them in stock for that price and I'll send double that to you as a gift.

I ordered one from CCL at £55, but it disappeared from their site and the order then got cancelled

Might get this though.

Just one thing, the 4730 is virtually identical, except it's clocked slightly slower. But seeing how they are also great overclockers (so very easy to bring the clocks up to the same speed as the 4770) and are £10-12 cheaper they may actually be a better option.
I actually just picked up a 4730 from ebuyer for £51 (damaged box, so there was only 1 unfortunately), but ebuyer sell the cards for £55 anyway.

The 4730 uses an older 55nm GPU core coupled with GDDR5 so is not directly comparable to the 40nm 4770. I recall reading a review in which the power consumption was particularly bad.

I stand corrected. Just looked a little more myself and the 4770 is 15% faster on average.

so its even better than the radeon 4850?

Stunning price on a very good card. Power usage on the 4770 is very low as well = less heat and the card pays for itself over time.


Buying this is a no brainer

Does this have a HDMI port? that would be the dealbreaker for me, but it seems to say 'through HDTV cable' and doesnt clarify more than that.


EDIT: Just seen these pics newegg.com/Pro…ail

No HDMI but a DVI - HDMI adaptor

strobez1977;6268517

Very similar stock performance, but the 4770 draws less power and runs cooler (making it quieter and more OC'able than the 4850).

cold.

as it's about to steal my 70 squids :-(


seriously, can anyone come up with a reason *not* to buy this? ie. any 4830's still for sale anywhere? any GTS 250s at a slightly higher price offering much better performance?

already got a 4770 - do i dare pick up another just to cross fire....? hmmmm

picked mine up for about £8.00 more a couple weeks ago direct from a jungly-forresty sounding vendor.

hot

>> from a jungly-forresty sounding vendor

jungly... forresty... erm... umbongo? no that can't be right...

Ordered mine - thanks

Along with a 1TB Samsung for £46 too.

what psu power does this need?

300W would usually be fine but list your PC spec so people can confirm.

Folks I've lost touch with graphics cards, this pc uses an Nvidia 8500 and I enjoy multiplayers like BF2. I'm thinking that I should perhaps go for a 4890, will I see better graphics with that compared to the one posted here ? I don't want to buy one card and wish I'd bought something else.

meh. purchased one. damn you hotuk and your money stealing ways. avail stock is now 75. thanks op.

Sorry to hijack the thread with IT support but I was wanting a card that will play downloaded .mkv blu-ray rips for less than £50. I've got a Phenom 8550 triple core with 3Gb RAM but know little about cards. Don't play any games at all, just want to watch films on my 42" Philips ambilight (1080p).

Also is a DVI to HDMI adapter as good as HDMI-HDMI? TV only has HDMI input.

Thanks guys!

spobby;6268863

power should not be a problem but it requires one 6 pin pci-e connector and low powered ones dont tend to have one.

>> Also is a DVI to HDMI adapter as good as HDMI-HDMI?

identicle, minus the lack of sound. otherwise they can both carry identicle signals, they're just a different shape.

I have a 4870, and it does sound through a dvi / hdmi converter. Picture is perfect, use it for playing 1080p video on my tv, no issues... I imagine it would be the.same for these. Ill check...

It might be worth holding on a little while if you can. ATI will be releasing their next gen DirectX 11 cards at the end of the month.
It's likely the cheaper of the two will be in your price range and a significant step up.

The 4770 has built in 7.1 sound, over hdmi (using adaptor)
