PostSubject: rellic i need your help mate   Thu May 27, 2010 7:06 pm

ok my gfx card just kicked the bucket tonight so im now ruled out for tomorrow night for bf2142 but i want to try and get a card for next day delivery on for Saturday.

the thing is i hav enot paid that much attention to the gfx card market in a couple years and i dont have the time to spend catching up on it all.


so mate could you please help me choose a card that will last a couple years

my budget is £200 - £250 i might be able to squeeze to £300


anything you could recommend???

Mate I was going to suggest the 5850 to you so that is perfect Razz I have it in my PC and it smashes any game it comes up against, my housemate got instantly jealous and bought one himself. It's also the GFX card I put in Bobeks PC and I would highly recommend it

I haven't seen any reviews on the 2GB version, I'm using the 1GB atm and it is plenty powerful enough. With that in mind, if you have the extra £100 for the 2GB version than by all means go for it. I never go for cards much over £200 because they don't usually offer a significant enough boost for the cost (this is just my opinion) and they drop down in price so quickly in a few months. It is completely up to you though, both cards will last for a good few years (unless you are a complete power freak like me which means 6-12 months Razz)

The 1GB version is around £240 atm

http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Components/Graphics+Cards/ATI+5800+Series/Powercolor+ATI+Radeon+HD+5850+OC+%22CODMW2+Edition%22+1024MB+GDDR5+PCI-Express+Graphics+Card+?productId=40057

or the 2GB version for £306

http://www.cclonline.com/product-info.asp?product_id=47549&tid=frooct

That 2GB one is a very good deal, twice the RAM for £60, the only drawback is I haven't used that site before Smile

It looks like that site doesnt do Saturday delivery Sad I'm fairly sure Aria do, the cheapest on overclockers is £232 and the cheapest on aria is £234 so they are very similar prices, it's your choice where you get it from Smile That is for the 1GB version.

Or how about this, andy may have found you the deal you are after:

http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=GX-233-SP&groupid=701&catid=56&subcat=411

2GB version for £297.99 from overclockers, just make sure they do saturday delivery Smile

That would be bad, however it would mean you have an uber powerful new graphics card when you replace your MOBO Razz

I would definitely advise anyone, if they were going to buy a new CPU to upgrade to the new core i processors, it is cheaper to keep an old MOBO and upgrade to an older quad core but it will mean no DDR3. Plus the i7's support triple channel DDR3 which is currently screaming 'come buy me' at the moment but I can't afford it Razz
