Oh god there's no post count here. I feel like I'm in the twilight zone (cue music).
Thankfully, the Taliban don't have any of them.
We shall leave all the application process to you then
Boys, i need a new card, what do i get?
ARGH! I hate being a greedy hardware addict. I'd love to be able to hit 4GHz with my Q9550 but it just isn't going to happen. I might be really sneaky and get myself one of these...
GTX470 you sold me. I'll swap.
Why not 6950?
The 5870 is sold, so i need to order a card today, for tomorrow.
6950 is a good one. The GTX480 is £190 till 1pm on Scan, then there's some new deals.
Is it a wise idea or not to sell my 860 rig and go to sandybridge, I couldn't afford the 2600, so 2500k it will be (no HT) is it still going to be a worthwhile upgrade?
IMO no, you are pretty much paying for nearly 0 gain. You need new CPU, mobo which is not really cheap.
I heard Amazon's Visa card is good
You just got your 860 a few months ago (or even less than that), and its still extremely powerful. No point upgrading if you cannot notice the difference =.="
I hate you.
nVidia GTX480 - £195
nVidia GTX560 - £196
nVidia GTX570 - £264
ATi HD6850 - £145
ATi HD6870 - £169
ATi HD6950 - £212
ATi HD6970 - £270
What do i gets...
I heard is wasnt very good - unless that isnt the card youre talking about.
*le dice roll*
6950 it is!
6950 and 560 are great cards for their price.
the problem with current high end 6xxx series AMD cards (anything above a 6870) is they take more of a hit when AA is cranked up compared to Nvidia current line up.
But i suppose all it takes is a few driver tweaks to iron that problem out
I'm leaning toward the 560 atm..
Scan ain't updated their Today Only
I would maybe consider a 470 OC for 179.99 or a 570 for 257.99 here,....
or a nice 6870 graded (still with 1 years warranty) for 149.99 here.......
I get free delivery at Scan, not Aria, so i'd rather buy there, unless...
Also, I've owned a GTX470, i want something nice and new.
I got it like 2 weeks ago
Yes but if I can upgrade without paying towards it ? only thing is I might have to sacrifice 4gb ram, a smaller SSD (60gb vs90gb) and storm scout case opposed to my sniper. Again I think I can do this without paying anything towards the build and might even be able to go HD 6850 crossifre
What about a new GTX560? My friend is selling his for £170 I think. He's only ever on OcUK forums & he's put it up on there but I'll ask if he still has it.
It works out £3 cheaper for me to buy a 570 from Scan.
@Innocent, if it's reference and he can post today, i'm interested.
Yeah reference 560 by Gainward. I'll text him now, he might not reply due to work et al.
Just done a Heavens bench on my current setup. xD
I wonder how will it compare with my upcoming i7.
