They do have a high street store. I got John Lewis to price match from them before Christmas
If they don’t have a high street store they won’t touch it
Which it is...
It's available online for delivery or via collection, as per terms and conditions, they will. I've had numerous items price matched from scan at John Lewis.
Thanks for your reply (y) ;)
:/ "10C+ lower temperature" Eh, Surely -10C lower temperature.
No tensorflow on AMD atm
This is the price the 2080ti should be. Nvidia know it too. It's why you can't buy 1080ti's for love nor money atm. I paid over the odds for my 1080ti FTW3, (thanks Bitcoin miners!) but on reflection, I'm damn glad I did. Almost fell for "wait for next series to come out" spiel. Prices for current range are a total insult when considering price to performance increases over last generation. + The gimmick of making everything nice and reflective/shiny .. excellent .. what's that you say? 30fps? Oh, nvm. Also insulting.
Would the extra be any better for VR? If so the low RAM on the 2080 would make the 7 a better choice for that
16GB is overkill for a "gaming card" imo.. Would of rathered 8GB and a lower price. Ray tracing and DLSS are a bit of a no show atm though...
Well for the personal stuff, I think we all have a valid reason to try to pay as little as we can, legally of course. But then we had Apple avoiding (some might say evading) something like £32bn in tax by cleverly setting up their Irish division. All legal by Irish and USA standards, but shafting both countries, plus all other EU countries where they earned a (not insubstantial) profit. The mystery to me is why folks still love Apple like some kind of cult, when they exhibit such morally questionable behaviour. There are some companies, who's products I might think are great, but which I wouldn't buy because of the behaviour of the firm that makes them. These days we make excuses and are weak, but not so many years ago, folks boycotting Shell fuel helped bring down the apartheid in South Africa. And Nestle was equally challenged about their shocking tactics to promote non-breast milk in Africa. There are still mobile phones which have Tantalum in them which was mined by child slave labour in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Does yours? Most folks don't know. The same folks would berate those who bought a blood diamond or real fur. But it seems when it comes to phones or paying tax, it's ok to look the other way. Rant over. Apologies.
You're making many generalisations, assuming that one size fits all. 120gb is fine for someone who wants a basic business desktop with quick boot-up and secondary hard drive for storage. If you do a lot of gaming with certain games possibly not then.
For some reason hot I UK Deals have put this in the app msg deals. For the price of. 27.25 Idiots
Personally I would make a video of it not booting in your system and get it replaced by EVGA especially as i did a quick check with a vega 64 i7 build with a bunch of drives and it came back saying a g3 650 was enough on their own EVGA PSU calculator, so they can hardly claim it is underpowered. although I think the 7 year warranty is only if you registered with them upon purchase I think it is just 3 years if you did not register.
Yeah thought about that but decided to put it in second system with the rx480 which is staying at the GFs (y)
Well say you have an Vega 64 and a normal desktop CPU (not a HEDT or I7 9900k) then it won't use more than about 400w max, GPU makers always give overkill figures as they would always play it very safe. The EVGA G3 is a quality PSU and should more than be able to run any single GPU config (and all but the highest end dual GPU config), maybe its a faulty unit they do have something like 7+ year warranty so send it back.
Well the reason I am getting a 750W is due to the Vega recommending that PSU power. I currently have a EVGA G3 650W and it refuses to boot with the Vega whereas my 620W Antec boots fine. The Antec though has a really irritating click on the PSU fan that is just audible enough for me to hear. So decided against another EVGA 650W which I know should be fine and went for this one instead. Will see how it all goes!
this is true and this PSU looks good on paper and reviews quite well but as long as you accept that is is not really platinum but actually gold and base judgement on that and the price. on a side note I'm not really sure who a 750w PSU is for because if you have a high end CPU from either AMD or Intel lots of ram and two high end video cards you should probably have an 850+ but if you are only running a single card even if it is super high end then it is likely a PSU of 650w would be more than adequate. so your system maximum load should idealy be around 10% less than your PSU is rated for (so a 550w full load system should have at least a 600w PSU), so based on that if you were after a PSU for single card gaming then for less money it looks like SCAN has an EVGA 650 GQ for 60 quid or 65 delivered and it is an FSP semi modular unit or if you were after SLI/XFIRE setups and watercooling then you would probably be needing an 850+ so would be a bit more expensive. after having used SLI and XFIRE for many years in different configurations my current opinion of it is that it is mostly annoying and when it works its okay but there was so many occasions where it did increase frame rates caused more problems/crashes or it was incompatible with certain games so i had to disable SLI to play certain titles to the point that I will not bother with it again. to be more certain of which wattage PSU you actually require there are a couple of online PSU calculators they are not perfect but give a decent estimate of what you might need like this Power supply calculator and there is a BeQuiet one and this coolermaster one there are probably more of them but I suspect they are all going to give a similar result. my personal preference for a PSU are Superflower or EVGA (but specifically the ones made by superflower for evga) PSU because of the no fan under 50 degrees settings and the are excellent quality, but I have also had good experiences with some sub 650w Antec and BeQuiet and fractal design PSU's. I have twice now seen cheaper power supplies kill a whole system (one a HP oem and the other a Hiper SF-350TS) and the hiper one even caught fire right in front of me and destroyed my MSI neo2 plat venice 3000+ system not even under load but just a few minutes after booting up. ;( and a friend of mine has had so many coolermaster and several corsair PSU's die on him over the years but he uses them 24/7 Apologies for text wall woke up far too early and had a lot of energy :D but I hope someone finds it useful.
Nothing wrong with refurbs when it’s manufacture refurbs. Infact they are often less problematic because the last thing they what is to have to keep taking items back to fix and resell so refurbs have a much higher level of quality control
To my knowledge, you get a code which you register using your account to redeem the games. So essentially you are selling all 3 together.
Can't sell the games as you need to login to your account it then gets bound to that account.
Amazon are now price- matching this https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/offer-listing/B07KPMTLHJ/ref=dp_olp_new?ie=UTF8&condition=new although the product page doesn't mention the BFV & Anthem offer....
Hold out for the reviews, and then see how it all affects the prices. Radeon 7 should be around the £650 - £670 mark if retailers don't inflate prices. AMD reference boards are always solid too, and this time it has a decent cooler on top, plus even if you don't want the 3 free games you can sell them for around £50 on fleabay. If VII is anything like current Vega, then undervolting should greatly help performance (lower temps/power consumption and OC headroom).
That's bs. I've bought hundreds of items through them over the years. Never had an issue with RMA's either. Edit: if you're gonna be bold with your dissing I'm more than content with being bold with my correction, lol.
Most likely yes, I'd estimate a couple *c at most. No harm in it if you like the aesthetic, and it does offer a little more leeway in general with the larger rad. And you could probably sell the kraken on fleabay to recoup a reasonable amount back. I wanted to get the castle RGB one but ordered one of these as the price is really good and they are for the most part very similar units, and 1-2 *c up or down doesn't bother me as temps will still be really low.
Reckon i'd get worthwhile performance gains over a kraken x31 on a 6700k?
Indeed. I'm holding out for the castle 240 but this is really tempting. :D.
A good price for what is apparently a decent cooler. £57.66 from Scan via Amazon, and £89.99(!) from Deepcool via Amazon. Have some cool heat! (y)
Gigabyte are new to PSU's and the manufacturer they are using is a new entry to the consumer space. Their higher end models seem to be outstanding as says they use nothing but top end capacitors and if its the same as the Aorus models they are constructed very well. Really do seem a good buy and at this price this one makes a lot of sense if you only using the machine for a few hours a day.
And here's a modern F-14 jetfighter game to match the screnshot of the lappy in OP. It's a gaming laptop, right?:)
Throttled by poor cooling and 8gb of ram. £1100? No thanks.
RAM is so cheap now why they keep selling laptops with just 8gb?
this is a far better option similair specs better cooling https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/hp-omen-17-an101na-gaming-laptop-99999-microsoft-store-3152572
I believe the "TUF" models have shocking cooling performace and throttle badly so cold. Regardless of specs you wouldn't get what you pay for.
not including delivery
Not sure why this is expired. Currently in stock at a lower price. £389.99
See, it wasn't to hard, nicely done :)
I know, it takes skill to be right while offering an opinion. It’s even harder to be tongue in cheek one minute and super helpful the next. It still stands that Blowers for many are terrible designs. Yes they benefit ITX systems, realistically an ITX build would pick a cooler card anyway. If you can cope with the noise, then it’s an option. Would rather spend a little more or hold out for a better design.
Your contribution is unparalleled :|
Apologies (y) 😳 that's a shocking price on amazon (shock)
Btw, I am tempted to try your deal, thanks for posting. Trouble is with the 280's in my head I'll always be wondering what if? As you do, lol
Haha me too, thanks mate (y) . Best I can find is £85 I should of bought them in the summer @£65 when I see them, been keeping an eye on ebay but they really have a following now and go for more than new, lol.. They are for my electric drum kit I've had for a few years and getting bored of bass heavy headphones, so going for a studio set and apparently the 280pro's are the one's to have.. Thanks again.
Are you looking the MK1s or the MK2s and what price for the HD 280 would you consider a deal? I'm bored over this holiday season and have been finding plenty of deals.
Shame no deals on the 280 pro's been after a set for a while now :(
I got 9600k for less than that (£230) ;)
The newer 9600k is just £9 more though.
Price back up to £319.99
Wow! That was a real deal! (shock)
This deal: https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/powercolor-amd-radeon-rx-vega-56-red-dragon-8gb-hbm2-graphics-card-at-scan-for-23246-3144604
How did you get Vega 56 for £226? :/
I'm impressed how much value the 10 series cards have held I had a 1060 which actually increased in value when I swapped for my 1080
ordered excellent price, thanks
Just sign up for starling then it's easy and online
Other colours of the special edition are available, including the white... https://www.scan.co.uk/products/fitbit-charge-3-fitness-activity-tracker-special-ed-white-fitbit-pay-water-resistant-24-7-heart-rate I had ordered this on Christmas Eve for collection from Argos for £149.99 - Cancelled and picked it up from here instead. Thanks OP!
4 small banks (inc. Santander (:I )
Special Edition comes with fabric strap (not waterproof), regular black silicon strap for working out (waterproof) and Fitpay which works with about 3 smalls banks and will probably never see a decent rollout in the UK. Edit: 4 banks.
£111.19 at BTShop plus £3.49 delivery.
FSP are pretty good. Is the fan on this noisy?
EVGA is the Duracell of power supplies aka EVGA does not make any of its own power supplies, instead it sources them all from different suppliers and this particular one is made by FSP for EVGA if you want one with the eco-mode (fan switching off under low-medium load) then it has to be made for EVGA by Super Flower, or you could buy a Super Flower although I am sure other manufacturers probably also make PSU's with silent technology but I am not personally aware of which companies do that. this looks like a good PSU and others from the G1 plus range have scored very well on jonnyguru.
If only it had eco-mode.
Great price. Just purchased one of these to go in a 9th gen i5 build 1080 combo. Fully modular wiring made installation a breeze with enough length on the mobo power cables to poke behind the mobo tray and back into the case from above leaving a really tidy finish. Hexus and other reviews rated this PSU highly.
good cards , very reliable and very quiet .. single fan doesnt seem to bother them at all (960)
Not a fan of single cooler 1060 and above cards, but great price and heat added
I have this card, resolved the hugely throttling GPU core by using MSI Afterburner and setting - -25 vcore +50% power target
Not great. When it hits £350 with 3 games it'll be worth a jump. Or £250 for the Vega 56.
Na, I’d say Q2 latest. They are launching a consumer card in the next few weeks at CES.
This cooler doesn’t cool the VRMs properly so while it looks good, the VRMs overheat and throttle. Check Google for confirmation. I would not touch this for that reason. I got one of the Vega 56 for £226 from Scan but normally they’re around £300 and an extra £115 for a 64 isn’t money well spent.
When have AMD gpu's ever turned up early. No way will Navi appear in Q1 when AMD will be focusing on the Zen 2 launch. October at the earliest with short supply and massive mark up from retailers. Vega 64 at 350 is more realistic in its life cycle.
Just an FYI -AO.com will also price match this, and have the product in stock
1. All very different usage cases, and many people who travel will happily use all 4. 2. Cost is ridiculous, no doubt about it. Apple have destroyed themselves but the rich (and Very.co.uk customers) will keep feeding them. 3. Planned obsolescence is one big lie that deprived people like to spread when they can't accept that their expensive purchase 5 years ago is old as balls when it comes to technology. The iPhone "debacle" was also the most laughable ordeal I've seen so far. Just a load of sheep, ironically, jumping on the bandwagon to cry to Apple for free battery replacements. Yes it's bad to not tell your customers that you were slowing down phones due to poor battery health, every cynic knows the true reason, but allowing the device to keep functioning at a slower speed to avoid random shutdowns goes completely against that too.
because some mug, somewhere will buy a phone, tablet, laptop and desktop. millions in fact. My 15" 2013 retina will be the last macbook I buy. I can't justify 1 - the cost and 2 - the planned obsolescence. mine cost me £1100 (bought from the US for $1600). Equivalent is now $2400...no chance
Oh no! A Gold or Rose Gold 2017 MacBook; How embarrassing.
Cheers. Not sure JL will price match Scan’s shop seems to be in a business park rather than a retail park (albeit right by a big retail park), but it’s definitely worth trying.
