This is a pretty decent value Graphics card for the money, plus it comes with the AMD Golden Ticket for 3 Free games.

If you qualify for free delivery then it is a good £20 cheaper than the MSI card which has been getting some heat. Overclockers seem to be disliked by many but I've never had a problem with them and I am an active member of their forums (which is how I qualify for free delivery)

Marketing guff:

"The VTX3D R9 280 is the best value for money high-end gaming graphics card you can buy. Essentially this card replaces the famous HD 7950 making it great for the latest games such as Titanfall or mining crypto-currencies.

If you can get free delivery this is a great deal (only 10 left at this price), cheapest I have seen an r9 280.

Else the Sapphire r9 280 is the same price at novatech and personally I would prefer that one to this or the MSI...

Yeah, my first ever card was a Sapphire and I do have a soft spot for them. They make great AMD cards

To be fair, I don't know of any manufacturers who aren't a pain if you need to RMA something. I've seem problems from virtually everyone, particularly XFX & ASUS. I usually make sure I can quote the relevant passages from the sale of goods act at the shop I bought it from and get them to deal with the return.

But yeah, my Sapphire card never broke, I sold it on to a mate who I believe is still using it.

Yeah I agree, was just joking around.

sorry VTX so cold. A bargain isn't a bargain if it's a second rate manufacturer, and VTX don't have the QC of others (hence the lower price).

Msi would be considered better but best value in my opinion is neither. I would get this:

Though not a massive difference between them.

they were cheaper a couple weeks ago from novatech.

VTX3D that's the reason this is cheap. Wouldn't touch it personally, had three, yes three VTX3D 7770s fail.
