    PowerColor - with its Game FX X800 GT 256MB - carrying dual-DVI-I outputs and using only R480 cores, is in the ascendency here.

    Our advice, after 14 pages, is actually quite simple; go buy it.

    £110 won't buy you better overall 3D performance or a better feature-set."
    Read the full HEXUS.review.


    *** So, what do you need to do to win this superb mid-range performer? ***

    If you recall our recent NVIDA GeForce 7800 GT giveaway, we asked you to state why you deserved to win.

    We thought we'd give ATi fans a chance to do the same... ...so rack your brains and

    *** in no more than 10 words, make a post in this thread and state why you should win this card. ***


    *** You have until Monday 29th August 9PM GMT to get your entries in. ***


    If you're not lucky enough to win this HEXUS.winners win4FREE competition,

    then you can purchase your own PowerColor Game FX X800 GT 256MB PCIe 3D graphics accelerator from Microdirect.


    Good luck everyone!

    I had an absolutely AWFUL experience with Micro Direct - I ended up waiting over 3 weeks for next day delivery, during which time they didin't answer any of my e-mails, letters, or any of their phone lines. After doing a bit of googleing I found many accounts of such problems, which is a pity because I bought 3 Shuttle's from them with no glitches. Just thought I'd give people the heads-up.

    But why should I win?

    I will auction the card to raise money for charity.

    (www.thejoshuafoundation.co.uk to be precise - somebody please think of the children!).
