Same here but then I have never had to return any item I have bought

rather spend an extra £40ish and get a Nvida GTX560 TI.

2 years ago they cancelled my pc order which cost about £250 and refused to refund unless I sent them copies of my passport, bank statements and other private documents.

You mean if you spend 30% more money you can get a better card?
Holy crap, I never knew that!

can someone tell me what pci-express 2.1 is? i think my motherboard supports pci express 2.0 (I've currently have a galaxy 9600gt attached), will it also support this 2.1 graphics card as well

Yes, it'll work fine in a 2.0 slot.

However, the speed is the same as PCI Express 2.0. Most motherboards sold currently come with PCI Express 2.0 connectors.

Ditto.

just got q 4870 for 40 quid. is this cost effective to upgrade.

In a nutshell, can someone please tell me what the perceived problem with Pixmania is? I've used them before without problems (although I haven't had to return anything).

in this case, at least if anything goes wrong in the longer term, you'll only have to deal with Sapphire, who are among the best in the business

cracking cards these, no brainer at this money imo, pixmania notwithstanding

£128.99 delivered at ebuyer for an XFX 6870 card. According to this, pcpro.co.uk/htm…d=6 , XFX are just as good as Sapphire, if not better in terms of reliability and CS.

EDIT: and Ebuyer is certainly more popular than Pixmania (pcpro.co.uk/htm…php?pageId=12)

Damn, the 5870s and 6870s seem to be rather cheap these days.. This does not bode well for my wallet.

5870 is much better deal than 6870.

stonking price for that mate, well done!

this card is £129.95 @ Aria with TWO free games btw

I've got one of these, great card plays every game in max detail (running two screens). So I'm not sure if a better/more expensive card would really give you much more.

I don't know myself about the vender (I always opt for ebuyer, as I've never had a problem with returns with them).

I vote hot!

PS the cooling on this one is better than the reference/standard ATI design

Have to differ there. XFX CS is notorious for being lack luster at best. I had several dealings with the, myself in the past. There stance was go see the place you bought it from, and if you cant well tough luck.

i'm so tempted. i've been waiting for a deal on a graphics card for a while . I just can't decide which to go for . I'm stuck , caught in two minds whether to jump in and buy one of these deals or wait for a better

lol there's always a better deal just around the corner, you could be waiting forever

Yes the problem with the list is XFX warranty is good in the US and Canada but not so good here in the UK which is strange considering it's a UK published magazine. Other things to note is BFG don't offer any support here in the UK, but as they dont have a distributor here so your not likely to find its products anyway which once again is strange for it to be included in a UK publication.

They claim it's their research but I suspect it was conducted in the US.

Will work fine, motherboards are rarely the factor, it's the PSU you have to be certain on (recommend500w+ for this card)

Question ladies and gents, this XFX 6870 for £131 @ pixmania, or an XFX 5870 @ ebuyer for £143? I gather the general consensus is that the HD5870 is superior, but is it worth the extra few quid? Also I've been informed pixmania are pretty dodgy, and that ebuyer are less than good these days too..

achyyyy

You'll get an extra 5-10 FPS with the HD 5870 on average. May not sound a lot, but if running games at very high detail settings it can be there difference between playable and unplayable.

Many thanks for the response. I haven't purchased any new hardware in a while (I currently have an HD 4850), so I'm not familiar with the more recent cards. I'd like to be able to play BFBC:2 smoothly at high settings, and enjoy Skyrim when it's out!
