    aria.co.uk sometimes have their 9800pro on special/deal of the day @ £240, so if you don't mind waiting a bit for it to pop up again, it's a bargain !

    i've got one and it overclocks to 460+ on stock cooling.

    There are a lot of reviews regarding the Sapphire version. They are one of the best for o/c

    Tell you the truth a lot of the Rad 98's are SOOOO similar in performance (i.e. blistering) that you should go for the best value one. I have a standard ATI one that I bought for 260, a very good price and it had JUST come out...240 seems like an absolute bargain compared to the 400pound Nv cards, but you do get Valve to special code HL2 stuff for ya

    I went for the Hercules card after reading the Hexus review for it, but they are mostly all the same.
