This is the cheapest I have seen this card go, was £99.99 a good while back from Pixmania, but I know how much Pixmania is loved, so here I give you the card, cheaper than Pixmania, and from a company with unrivalled customer service... Oh and the £2 App credit so effectively £97.95.

Not in stock but order for 25th, I'm sure 5 days wait won't kill anyone.

Now for the blurb:

HDMI (with 3D)
Advanced GDDR5 Memory Technology
AMD Stream Technology
AMD Avivo HD (DVD/HD-DVD/Blu-ray Playback)
AMD CrossFireX Multi-GPU Technology

Cheers brother

How would this compare to the R9 270x?

The 270x is 2 steps higher in the range so not as well. However for 1080p gaming this will probably do most of what you need. It's pretty quiet in the rig I built my PC a couple of months ago and let's him run what he needs it to, including star Citizen modules.

Benchmarks here obviously the 270x beats it but for the price this is a very capable card in my eyes, still stuck between this and a 750ti, latter more to do with less cabling and less tdp for me.

Brilliant, I've been looking for a GPU comparison site that has the 265 and the 270x for ages. Thanks!

I think I've narrowed my search down to the GTX 760/R9 270x/R7 265, flubit have offered 137 for the Asus 270x..

I'm trying to stick to under £100, don't play games often enough to justify more being spent, I know an extra £10,£20,£30 etc will get a far better card but still, the 750ti was more appealing initially, although prices of that seems to have rocketed again.

No choices are set in stone as yet, I'll see what materialises towards the end of the year

I'm sure they have just released the 265 and 250 recently, I'm not sure much will come along this year?

I just want something that will play the new GTA V on high settings, my current Asus 6670 is not up for that task as it barely copes with IV.

I know what you mean about the extra £10 gets you.. that's why I'm swaying more to the R9 over the GTX 760 as I'm not sure the extra £30 is justified, particularly as the R9 appears to be better on most of the games home.anandtech.com/ben…043

There's rumours (yeah only rumours at this stage) of the newer architecture of the 'Maxwell' range, think it's code named 'Pascal' but it'll likely be next year now for it, just like the idea of the 750ti being small, no need for pci cable, and less power consumption, I know I wouldn't get great settings but it'd do the job I need it for.

Fair enough!

I got bored of looking at cards, stumbled across a Asus R9 280x at a very tempting price and ended up buying it. Hopefully it will last 3 years!

Very Good Deal
