Wow. Awesome deal. And to think I paid 200£ for one of these not even 7 months ago.

This one comes with DDR5 Memory, the one with GDDR5 memory is £5 more:

Time to go Xfire ?? :w00t:

Prices are dropping as ATI should be releasing their 5*** series soon..

However, this will play pretty much any game out at the moment with settings maxed and as long as consoles exist games are not likely to evolve much in terms of graphics. Good deal

Just bought one of these second hand for £55 inc postage. Probably would of gone for this if I hadn't

I feel for you but it has always been like that on gfx cards. 6 months later, worth half what you paid.

AHHHHH Just bought a ******* 4850 for 90!!!!!!

Why Not Return It

LOL no worries mate its all the same stuff anyway!

All graphics cards use GDDR2/3/4/5 etc.

there a lot of differences between ddr and gddr actually lol.

All graphics cards use GDDR2/3/4/5 etc.

:P

the one posted in this deal doesn't

sorry i'll zip it now

The 1Gb version is available for £12 more, surely a better investment.

Ahh, no. There are plenty that use normal DDR2 or DDR3, especially cheaper cards. Easy mistake to make, though, as memory types are a minefield.

The 'DDR5' in the spec of this card is clearly a typo. There's no such thing as DDR5 yet (DDR4 is still under development) and all Radeon 4870s use GDDR5, no exceptions.

Correct. :thumbsup:

ive just downloaded the benchmark for Resident Evil 5 and have decided my graphics card must be getting long in the tooth. Im getting about 15-20FPS at the minute with my 7600GT. Im sure my CPU (E2160 but overclocked to 3GHZ is still ok.) Will i get a much needed boost with this if i chuck out my 7600 for this?

Yep, very big boost, really good choice of card.

If you play at high resolutions (1920x1200) then it's worth the extra for the 1GB card. It should last longer too. Brilliant graphics cards though, whichever one you get.

Well ive got a 24" monitor which max res it 1080p (1920x1080??) so would i be better off going down the 1GB route then? I actually tried the resident evil demo in 1280x720 as this deisplays on my monitor perfectly as well so was just going to use that res instead perhaps? Confused now as to whats the best option!

i have a 8600gts - was pretty happy with it - its a fanless cooling card, and did what i wanted - quietly!

have recently got gta4, and crysis. my system struggles to deal with these in a decent manner, without some sort of ram management programme.

my question is, will i notice much difference in terms of noise levels?

i don't really seem to see many / any fanless cards, and i don't really want to put my own silent cooler on to a card.

i heard that the fan on these isnt too loud if you set it to 60% at all times,but it will depend on if you have other fans in your pc,i have like 1 huge fan 2 12cm fans psu fan cpu fan etc, so adding this card wont make much difference to me

Problem in, as the fan is much smaller, the noise is very different from case fans and higher in pitch.

I have my 4870 set to 25% fan speed, which I cannot hear over my case fans when I'm in 2D mode. However when the temps rise (in 3D apps) it goes up to 60% depending on temperature. This is slightly more audible but as I have my headphones on when I game, it doesn't 'really' matter.

Hi I am thinking of upgrading my Dell XPS 420 (2 1/2 years old) but I am concerned regard the power consumption for my PSU. Can someone tell me the best card (I dont think I has crossfire option) I can get that will not max out my PSU as I currently have a 8800 GT. Is this card it?

Check your PSU's wattage rating. If it's the original Dell one & 400W & above you might be OK (as Dell 'underrate' their PSU figures).

However, as this card requires 2x 6pin PCI-E connectors, with your PSU probably having only one (?), you'll have to create another one with adapters/converters. But first let us know the wattage & we can take it from there.

In addition, these cards are long (9-11 inches) & wide (on account of the cooler), so you'll also want to check if there's enough space available for it to fit.

Ok i got mine in the post today, thought i should let people know this comes with a different heatsink and fan, i havent installed it yet so i cant tell you if it works better or is more silent.

on the second row shows the card i have recieved

Original Poster

well its 89.99 now. the cooler keeps it at 60 deg c idle and it goes up to 80 at load. the fan is near silent i cant here it over my case fans and it rarely goes above %50 speed. no heatsinks on the ram is scary though!
