Great Deal. Awesome card. Not sure about the website, just for the simple fact that I've never heard of it before. But awesome find none the less.

time to upgrade from 3870 damnnnnn again £300.... lol

Good Price, however i think i will pass, i just got a 4670 from PC World (their clearence price is £20 more than other stores normal RRP) to tide me over until the 5870 comes down to the £250 mark.

1) Graphics Cards depreciate faster than any other component in a PC including the CPU


£300 ATi 5870 BNIB Scoring 2603 costing £300 (11.5p/benchmark point)
vs.
£70 ATi 4870 2nd hand Scoring 1742 (4p/benchmark point)

2) Where does this make sense?

So this, in comparison is just under three times more expensive benchmark wise for the sake of a 50% increase in performance.

Spending over £100-£150 on a graphics card is quite insane, given todays economy... very insane.

They might be in France like them other Monkeys.

the 5870 is a nice card but its really expensive i think the 5850 is a better price to performance ratio even then i will only pay under £200 for a card

still man i do want a 5850 just cant afford one :oops:

Good price (cheaper than elsewhere where in stock)!

However, Amazon have it cheaper (£267), although it's listed as 'temporary out of stock', so you can still order but not sure when they'll deliver.

I've used B4UD in the past - a bit slow to deliver but I got my item in the end.

If your going to compare gaming graphics cards, at least use a PROPER benchmarking tool. PassMark is old and no serious gamer would look at it for reference.
