    The same card albeit 512mb version on OCUK is roughly £20 cheaper.

    The problem with this card is that it is pushing to close to the price of the GTS (which can be had for £184.99 in ebuyer)

    Correct! although the factory is no longer locally owned so whilst it is still called "Lea & Perrins Worcester Sauce"......Lea & Perrins dont actually own it anymore, I think it's some American company or subsidary.
