Radeon HD5870 Vapor-X 1GB £296.40 from Pixmania

Found 8th Jun 2010
Best price I've seen for this card and I've heard you actually get the sapphire vapor-x retail version.
This is a great card to run eyefinity three monitor gameing setup.
If anyone has the £25 off a £150 spend voucher that a few HDUKers had a while ago, now might be the time to use it and bring the price down to £271.40. Like I just did :P

The Radeon HD 5870 Vapor-X is a revolutionary graphics card that provides first-rate performances with the latest HD video games.

It's compatible with DirectX11 and includes ATI Eyefinity technology, allowing you to use up to three screens at the same time. What's more, the Radeon HD 5870 Vapor-X is equipped with 40nm transistors to reduce power consumption, and it's designed to get more out of the new features in Windows 7.

Hmm why would it be cold? Nvidia fanbois?

Ok at least one has the decency to give a reason to vote cold. Although the only time i've had a problem with them was during a certain dodgy misprice that everyone jumped on in here.

Excellent price but not voting either way due to the pixmania reviews linked to above (never used them myself, and those reviews put me off doing so).

It'd be great if amazon or somewhere were to decide to match this price.

Well mine just arrived and it is the Sapphire Vapor-x edition as suspected.
Took just three days to deliver. Like I said I have never had a problem with them ....so far.
