Saw this in an email..but unsure how good a brand and model it is for the price. Seems cheaper than previous prices from a quick search on hukd.

Includes free delivery.

Scan has it for £155.74 + P&P unless you get free postage with them.scan.co.uk/pro…sfr

Not the best quality brand, but still a very good price.

Good deal, XFX is rubbish however.

The bioshock mostly comes with blood dragon code for never settled reloaded promotion.

Is it worth upgrading from a 6870?

Is it worth upgrading from a 6870?



Sure i upgraded from a 6870 to 7850 got a great performance boost and this one is higher spec

yup is rather go for a gtx 660 or similar never heard of xfx

You've never heard of XFX, are you joking lol ?

I have this graphics card and its a noisy little ****. The coil whine is terrible. I was told it could take from six to eight weeks for the problem to be looked at and I don't have another card to use in the mean time which would leave me without a PC for possibly two months.

Bought one of these cards a few weeks ago it is the Tahiti le version to which I was disappointed that they haven't advertised it as such as I need it to crossfire with an existing 7870. As far as card goes nice and quiet and good performance just a shame not advertising correctly.

Are you sure as this one is FX-787A-CNFC and FX-787A-CNAC comes up as the Tahiti LE?

Is there a massive difference with getting a card like this, or the Tahiti LE edition, or something like a GTX 660/660ti/760 when compared to a GTX 275? I realise the GTX 275 cannot run Direct 11 games. I bought a Zotac GTX 275 from Ebay a few months ago for about £30. I therefore question the performance increase vs cost to justify upgrading to something like one of the cards I have mentioned. Looking on the hierarchy chart on tomshardware.com/rev…tml the GTX 275 is not so far down the table.

I had a quick look at benmark comparisons on hwcompare.com but wonder what the real world difference is actually like.

lol - that website came up when I was checking the manufacturer codes for my reply to gibbo7f. Saw it had 27 reviews which is quite a few. Best to check NewEgg, Amazon US and UK and other popular online computer shops + forums for reviews

A GTX 660 and a Radeon 7850/7870 are probably around double the performance of your GTX 275. The 660 Ti/760 and Radeon 7870 Tahiti LE / 7950 are around another 20% faster again. You're card isn't bad and you got it at a reasonable price, but it uses a lot of juice and it's age does mean you're missing out on some modern eye candy.

Obviously there are performance increases between 7850 and 7870 as with 7870 Tahiti and 7950, but it's just to give you a rough idea.

Thanks for replying and for the information. I think I will stick with the GTX 275 for a while longer, as I am not in any rush to play the latest games. I'm only running one 21.5" monitor. The GTX 275 should not be working too hard even though on paper it likes using lots of juice. At the time of purchase I was looking at both Nvidia and AMD GPUs. Just ended up winning a GTX 275 auction.

Bear in mind that if you're planning to overclock, these aren't what you want. They are hardware-voltage locked and have a custom, non-reference XFX PCB.
