    That's a really nice deal right there. I was thinking £200 was a bit too expensive but £177 makes it a great deal.

    Judging by the price that the 5830 is about £170, I think the 6850 is going to be about as good as the 5830.

    They are in stock in aussie as well:

    http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=193

    those guys are pretty good with their stock levels so in stock usually means in stock :)

    not bad pricing either, I am building a few gaming machines over the next few weeks and was planning GTX460's but should I go for the 6850's?? going to google me a review.

    Prices on those links are moving up ever so slowly, well the 6870 is just by a bit, which means when they do get them in they could be more I spose.

    Scan seems to still be by far the cheapest and although the 6870 link is pre-order, they do have Sapphire 6870's in stock also but a little bit pricier than the linked card.

    £133.36 for a 6850 is a good dealio especially when compared to the gtx460 which is in the same price range.

    Actually after ive bought a few things for moving house i might just buy a 6850 because at that price it seems like a better deal than a gtx460 768mb hell anything is better than a dying gtx260

    Weird i see a few times that the 5850 is slightly better but also more expensive.

    Id get a gtx460 over a 5830 and id get a 6850 over a 5830, bit a of a tongue twister.
