    Ah, lucky you! As far as my knowledge goes we don't have any PC hardware shops in the south west. I think I'll order the plait from Scan. 429 all in but it seems like that's what it'll have to be


    Edit: any idea what would be a fair starting price for a HD5870 on eBay I may put both of mine on there to fund another purchase

    Well I've now found the perfect setup for my GTX680 4GB when I eventually get it when it's released. Behold this for 500:

    That's a $#@!ing steal :O for 500 I can't fault that. I wouldn't mind buying that and using my current 120hz screen as an analogue screen on top.

    When is the 4Gb launching and for how much?

    Well the 4GB has only just been shown on the EVGA site so I'd assume this'll come in a couple months time. The monitor deal is going on till the 7th May so plenty of time still to get it.

    I've always found the EVGA cards to be very bland in aesthetics. Asus and Galaxy cards are pretty badass looking

    I wouldn't care if it looked like My Little Pony, it's buried in my case out of sight.

    Ah right, not sure i can be bothered to wait that long and find out it would be more than i'd want to pay (> 600). I didn't order mine today and it seems Overclockers got a bit more in stock during the day and i'm now gonna wait for them to get the EVGA one back in stock

    I'd buy a card specifically for the reason of it looking like that

    Oh ofcourse. I can't think of a person who just buy a card for aesthetics. Its just something I had noticed.

    Function over form though form should come aesthetically pleasing nonetheless. I wonder if Nvidia is releasing their own line of Gigahertz edition cards like AMD did with the 7950.

    Well BBK, Overclockers have just announced today the first 4GB 680's by Palit arriving next week. They're overclocked and have custom coolers too all for 540!

    Ooph - 540. Only 70 than i was willing to pay buy 540 sounds like such a bigger number lol. Wouldn't mind waiting to see the benchmarks on that because i'm only going to be playing 1920x1080 for a while with it.

    edit: Not keen on Palit either really - was doing a bit of research and it seems for RMA's they are a bit of a pain in the ass.

    http://forums.overclockers.co.uk/sho...php?t=18231329

    Edit 2: Yeah i think i'm just gonna stick with the 2gb Super Overclocked version for the time being. I don't think i'd be able to sleep at night if i bought the 4gb card for more than you can get 3 monitors for

    Well Gainward are bringing their lineup to Overclockers next week too, not sure which cards they'll be though. And I'll be going triple screen - most likely won't have any 3D on them though because it's for TriDef but it's the 120Hz and NV Surround that I'll drool at.

    I do plan on getting 3 monitors not sure if i'll just buy 2 more of the ones i currently use (120Hz, 1920x1080 2ms G2G Asus VG236HE) or just buy the 3 that you posted and use my current one as a back up or a lone one for the desktop. I may just end up going SLI when that happens though.


    I hate you Varsh, you've thrown far too many spanners in the works

    More and more cards appearing. Gainwards Phantom Series looks quite nice. The longer the card i want stays out of stock the more i keep seeing others i want

    Will be interesting to see the benchmarks on those 4gb versions.

    Once more into the fray.
    Into the last good fight I'll ever know.

    It will only matter while running multiple moniters or 3d gaming on high resolutions

    If i get the Samsung 27SA750D (120hz) I'll be getting my self one for sure. I'm still on 22" 1680x1050 IPS monitor and there's nothing wrong with it so far.

    I need a SC EVGA one that's for sure.

    I think I will wait for a price drop on these. I'm not paying more than $400 for any individual card and for my next computer build - which I have planned for when the Crosshair VI and AM4 arrive - I want to have four graphics cards stuffed into my machine. I'm already designing my own custom case.

    That's some pretty heavy stuff but tbh I don't see AM4 coming anytime soon. And not to sound close minded or something, but unless AM4 is a HUGE upgrade over AM3+ (which, btw is $#@!ty for gaming), don't see why you would want AMD.

    I'm pretty sure AM4 will be a huge upgrade over AM3+. I don't see it coming out this year but perhaps, maybe sometime in early 2013. Either way, it gives me time to continue designing my custom case. As for why I choose AMD over Intel? It's because I like AMD's physical CPU architecture more and the price to performance ratio surpasses that of Intel. Intel is too expensive for what it offers.
