Found 12th Nov 2010
Radeon HD 4870 1GB, still a beast of a graphics card, at £51.85.

The deal of the day price has ended, but this is only a couple of pounds more....

Two models available:

HD-487A-ZHFC - http://www.scan.co.uk/products/1gb-xfx-hd-4870-pci-e-20-(x16)-3600mhz-gddr5-gpu-750mhz-800-cores-dvi-hdtv

HD-487A-ZDFC - http://www.scan.co.uk/products/1gb-xfx-hd-4870-pci-e-20-(x16)-3600mhz-gddr5-gpu-750mhz-800-cores-2x-dl-dvi-i-hdtv-hdcp

Can't for the life of me figure out the difference so take your pick!

Who the hell voted this cold? Madness, pure madness!

Anyone have any idea what size PSU I'd need to run one of these? Voted hot btw...

double post was posted earlier at around £49 and at that price its a steal i still have the 4890 which will play all new games and theres only Crysis that you cant max the settings out in, someone mentioned that this will play call of duty black ops at max settings so for bang for your bucks it cant be beaten. Its faster than the 5770 and that's £100+ so its a bargain and 2 in crossfire for a £100 will beat most cards out there today.

Power supply wise you need at least a good brand 550 watt as these are power hungry but overclock like monsters for crossfire ideally a 750watt.

So according to this:
this is still in the top ten Graphics cards and is comparable with a GTX 460 which is twice the price.
Whats the catch?link

Great card for the money!

Uses up to 160W under load - review from last year here of this card:


Thank you for your reply,

I am sorry we had to cancel your order, basically we had a very limited number of stock left I believe we had around 5 in stock and had to clear the stock quite quickly however we were inundated with orders around 100 for the last 5 pieces we were unable to source any more stock and as a result had to cancel quite a large volume of orders.

I can assure you this is not our usual level of service and this really is an exceptional circumstance which should not happen again, I really hope we can continue doing business.

Had a moan then recieved this:

We do carry live stocking levels for example we had 5 so they appeared in stock, within a matter of hours we oversold by around 100 as I said they went so quick it took us a few hours to actually remove the item from the website, it was showing as out of stock but people were still ordering them as pre-order due to them getting such a good deal. It was only when we went to replenish our stock with our suppliers they advised we could no longer source stock and as a result had to cancel the majority of orders received.

If you wish to order an alternaitve graphics card as there appears to be no other HD4870 available. Please advise which you would like to order and I will see if we can offer any reduction in cost due to the inconvenience.
