Using ebuyer as a guide, what's the best card for no more than £150?
Difficult price range you have.
Your basically looking at: GTX460, HD5850, HD5870, GTX550, HD6850
The HD5870 is the best.
No chance of anything slightly higher?
TBH, it's for a friends PC. He currently has an HD5770. He has been offered £70 for his current card and could possibly put and extra £100 towards a new card. So, maybe he shouldm go for an HD6870 @ £170....what do you think?
Moonpig's right the HD5870 is the best for your budget LIMIT..
Maybe a 2nd 5770 then, that'll be faster than a 5870 (IIRC).
No chance of getting a card 2nd hand? You'll have alot better choice.
gtx 460 would be bnib choice or gtx 480 s/h
good question - i am also looking into this atm.
where have you's found HD5870 for £150? I know you can get a HD5850 for £145 now.
Scan are selling an MSI 1GB GTX460 OC for £120 - which is a pretty good deal esp if your on Hexus/AV Forums = Free delivery
BARGAIN!! But I've never used the site before.
hmm i wouldnt like to part with 150 of my doe with an unknown!
Hookey, are you still getting that PC with the GTX 480?
the 5850/5870 is still a very strong performer.
Pm me let's have make a deal.. I'm planning to sell my 6950 2gb at cheap price
If the price is good -- even i might consider it
Quote us all up!
What you getting Huskie?
HD6950s are £198 on Scan (£190 on Today Only's).
I think Novatech had the XFX HD5870 for £150 or £160 NEW.
that would be the 5850 for £150.
i was offered an asus volt tweak 470 (reference board) with no box just cables etc for £120 including shipping
which is a good price,
but 8 months ago i had a card die on me and galaxy refused the rma because i grey imported it,i am not sure i would recommend the deal.
wow. what a load of BS. I would have been in a rage. reguardless if it is imported or not. the card is still made by them and if the card is still within warranty, it is their duty to repair it if it is faulty. you got shafted pretty hard.
Read their warranty terms, see if they're just being dicks.
yeah. that is pretty messed up.. they should've replaced it anyway regardless of wherever you got it.
No, it was £160. Might not be on anymore, trust me though.
Shows they can go that low.
I was nothing short of livid,and i dont give up easy either,i kept on at them for best part of 6 months.
Oddly enough each time i rung up galaxy i got the same guy in the rma department,think i ended up knowing more about him than his friends did!
But i did learn an expensive lesson though,pay a little more for piece of mind.
So i bought the next two 470s from scan and both turned out to be different to what i ordered LOL,
I couldn't send them back because theres nothing wrong with them,but i wanted reference models so i could use full cover blocks then overclock the arse out of them.
*MM hobbles away with his inflatable "got shafted" seat*
you could have asked a TPU member from the US to file for RMA for you. but to make it work, youd need to send the card to him so he can send it off. but it is gonna cost you to send the card to the US and to get it back
