    I have an ASUS EAH3870 which I'll sell for £65 but postage will be extra. Its an original reference design with the dual slot cooler, and comes with Company of Heroes Opposing Fronts and all the original cables and connectors, fully boxed. Don't ask me to go lower though, I paid £150 for this and dual slot versions are hard to come by! Bear in mind the box is effing huge, about 12x18x3 inches so postage will reflect this.

    I edited the fanspeed table in the BIOS with RBE and the card runs pretty cool and quiet (the TIM was changed for Artic Silver 5 also), but if you would prefer I will reflash the original and retest.

    I'm sure you would, but that ain't the deal! Postage will be extra. You'll be getting a bloody good deal as it stands....

    Scan.co.uk begs to differ... In the future be more like them and less of a sore loser.

    Wrong, I just looked up a price and carriage was extra. Sore loser? No, just tired of timewasters... If a price does include delivery then it will be factored in to the advertised price. Couriers don't work for the fun of it so someones got to pay for it! And FYI that 3870 you want is a GDDR3 version, note the 1900mhz memory speed....

    If you do your homework, you will find that Scan actualy does'nt charge for delivery.

    Read up on it...

    Go to scan. Select an item. Go to checkout. See price. See carriage charge. Get real.

    Straight paste from scan's site....

    The price for each delivery service is calculated based on the weight and volume of the items you have ordered, and will be displayed as a list of options at the point of ordering. You then have the option to view each service type and select the one you require.

    Homework eh???

    I have been ordering from scan for more then 2 years now, half of that was with free shipping, I think it's you that needs to get real and educated in "how to's" while you're at it...

    Well this is very entertaining! Go to their site and look like I have just done. The only time I have ordered from scan without being charged carriage was when I got the 3870 from them, and that was only because they had accepted an order for a different brand which they then couldn't deliver in time. If you can prove different with a link then I'll gladly accept I'm wrong....

    You've got a magic scan site then, I went there and clicked on an item, went to checkout and there was the carriage charge. Maybe theres a special offer on MSI cards....

    Lets not start arguing now. Scan does do free delivery if you know how (not gonna say cus they have asked for it not to be abused). Other sites do free delivery too. Dabs does it over £99 and ebuyer does it over £49.

    i always try bartering, you've got nothing to loose. try not to take it to heart mikek75.

    now lets all get along nicely before the mods have to come in and break this up
