    Freedom i did try that stunt and galaxy flat out refused,i was seething and it was made compounded by the fact these guys are so far away you cant drive up and have a polite word in their ear.

    The worst thing was i only had old games at the time and had never used something so up to date for graphics so i didnt even bother overclocking it or anything.

    I am sure it is just Galaxy and not all manufacturers that would consider an act like that as legitimate though.

    It's europes developing country.

    The site's been around since 2000 according to the FAQ btw so it should be legit. Bad ones usually goes down before long.

    £104 on ebuyer free super saver delivery ;) nice bloody price on these 5850's, £100 would buy you a 5770 not so long ago, and this is nearly 2x better :eek:

    I think these Xtreme cards are going to sell by the bukket loads, it packs so much more power over a 6850 & for cheaper then a 6850 too!! what more can you as for?

    not when you can have a 5850 Xtreme for under £100.

    they are good cards. but they overclock quite badly due to the corners cut to save money.

    Still an amazing buy though
