This is the Asus 5850 which comes with bios that allows for voltage tweaks and overclocking without voiding the 3 year warranty.

Yes you can buy a cheaper ATI 5850 and flash it with the Asus bios but you would then potentially loose the manufacturer's warranty (2yr's on most other cards).

I've voted cold because I don't think you would be able to make 20 posts in one day for the free delivery, also if you make 20 posts just for this deal, you have to wait till tomorrow to fill out the form on the internet to qualify for free delivery, by that time, this deal will be expired. It's nothing personal.

The free postage/forum part is not the be all and end all of this.

**Edit**
I've also just looked around for stock of 5850 cards at the usual big etailers and most seem to have few of any brand in stock (or in the case of Ebuyer, no 5850 cards even listed).

You are not supposed to make 20 posts in a day just to get free delivery, it's meant for regular members.

Good deal. Can't understand why its cold. Have some heat!

this card has been under £200 delivered to your house/tent, thats why this deal is cold!

Show me where I can get this card now for under £200 in stock?

not really a good deal, voting lukewarm average price for pre overclocked 5850.original price is £223.23 so you save about £4. non overlocked 5850's can be found under £200 hotukdeals.com/ite…l-d (now OOS so i will expire it). And if you sign up to their email offers i got a Scan email for this exact card for £211.49 yesterday.

This is another reason I don't think deals with selective free postage should get as hot as they sometimes do, I imagine a lot of people would want to make an account just for a particular deal and not to actually partake in the forum. I'm not having a go at the OP for posting, just explaining my reasons for voting cold.


Also slightly off topic, RE pre-overclocked cards. Sometimes manufacturers sell different levels of overclocked cards, i.e. overclocked, super-overclocked, super-super-overclocked etc. They designate which cards are overclocked to which level based on how high each card can overclock when being tested in the factory, the poor clockers will be sold as 'overclocked', the better ones will be sold as 'super' and the best will be sold a 'super-super'. Therefore I always think it best to stay away from the overclocked models, as it means you probably won't be able to get much more speed out of them than they have already been tested to run at from the manufacturer. If buying the normal clocked versions, the company often don't do these tests and so it's just luck as to whether you get a good one or not (and also a few quid cheaper).
