******Note: The picture is for the DVI/HDMI/D-SUB version however the description states it's the DVI/HDMI/DP version, though I suspect its the former going by the pricing. The DP version comes with a DVI to D-SUB adapter for people wanting to use analogue anyway.***********

This is the fastest card available that doesn't require a 6pin PCI-E power line.

As for where it's sits in the ranges. For ATI it sits between the 4670 and the 4770/4850. In the nVidia range its the GT240 and GTS250 about the same as the old 8800/9800GT.

This Card also supports 7.1 audio DD HD and DTS-HD over HDMI.

This is a very good budget card with DX11. The only thing that's holding it back is the memory, but if you play at 1680 x 1050 or less it's fine.

Much closer than you would expect. The 1GB versions are far to close in price to the HD 5750 512mb to make them worth buying (though if your constrained by your PSU this is not an option).

the manufacturer # is 11168-02-20R which is the DVI/HDMI/DP version.

Are you sure? I googled that and it seems to be D-SUB version on other sites. It's not on Sapphires site but 11168-02-40R is and is the D-SUB version.

I only checked it against the ebuyer and novatech sites which both state the same manf no. with the Display Port in the spec. Cant be 100% certain they havent all made same mistake but would be surprised.

Could someone give me a little advice?

I have a dell vostro 400, with quad core 2.66, but only a 350 watt power supply. Will that be enough for this card, or will I need a more powerful PSU?
Thanks

To be fair the recommended wattage is usually overstated. Personally I wouldn't worry about putting one of these in a system with a 350W PSU as a minimum. It depends on what else you have on the system competing for power.

The HD 4670 pulls 9 watts more than this card and works fine, that was on a system with 2 7200rpm hard drives, Blu-ray, DVD-RW, TV and Wi-Fi card.:thumbsup:

as Gavin stated its similar. But the scan deal for the GTS 250 is out of stock and awaiting stock still i believe. Also this card supports native dx11, the GTS 250 is a dx10 card.

Yes its not as fast a a standard GTS 250 but nobody has benched against a green:roll: (under clocked edition) so there should be nothing in it, just the game preference to lean nVidia or ATI depending on the game.

But for many people with off the self computers no needing a 6pin power supply is a big pull. As is the native HD decoding plenty of streams left over for post processing and bitstreaming of HD audio.

Is this better than my Gigabyte 4870?

So no.:thumbsup:

I wasnt tryna downgrade this card just wanted a comparison

link direct to error page

Amazing that there is is till nothing at this price point that will beat my old 8800GT. I'm just gonna keep waiting I think.

Have prices gone up or something?

I got a 4830 a few month back from scan for £40?

4830 isnt as good.
this is a really good price

will it be wiser to go for SAPPHIRE HD5670 1GB at price £80 (from amazon)?

4830 is faster than this easily. :thinking:

Although it is a good deal for a DX11 compliant card, results actually in DX11 are rather disappointing. CMR Dirt 2 really doesnt run well in DX11 on this. Heck, even a 5750 doesnt manage DX11 all that well. Unfortunately i think its just another case of low end DX10 cards, the compatability is mostly for show. It seems the features will end up too demanding for the most part on this class of card, even at modest resolutions.

So unless you MUST have DX11 support which i really dont think is all that necessary at this performance level, i would pick up a cheap 4830.

Also for 80 pounds, thats 4850/GTS250 territory. MUCH faster than this

this will work absolutely perfect with your power supply :thumbsup:

Absolutely correct. If you have a 350W from a reputable manufacturer than taking into account what else you have (more than 1 hdd's/CD-DVD drives) than you should be fine. I am running a Coolermaster 420W PSU with 1TB Seagate HDD, 4GB of DDR2, C2D 2.6ghz and ATi4890 all running with no issues.

My current GFX card is an NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT 256mb. Would this be much of an upgrade or would I have to spend more to see much of a difference.

This is at least twice as fast.

It's still a budget card IMO. Although it may be worth replacing the 8800GT to be more 'green' as they call it.



Its not a bold statement. Because i accurately read the question.

The 8600GT is essentially equal to a 9500GT/GT220 so this is quite a bit faster.

I'd agree that it isn't that great at this price though, this is about what it should be priced at for the performance and the initial £80 price was too high. Whether you're better off with this or a GTS 250/4850 is debatable, it's not as fast now but if DirectX 11 takes off soon enough it may have the advantage in a couple of years when you actually need it.

link doesnt seem to to work for card. Is the deal ended or a bad linky?

To answer PSU questions, its how much voltage you have on the 12v rails that makes a difference, you could have an 800w power supply with only 10 amps on the 12 v rail which would not be able to run this card, so be careful.

See google for explanation of 12v rail. clicky
