    It's probably worth adding that the slightly lesser clocked OC version is £150-ish at Scan, although yesterday was on a 'Today Only' for £126, making it surely a gem of a 'bang for buck'.
    Scan will typically repeat these sorts of offers, so worth keeping an eye out.

    Again, can someone give me an idea how far ahead (realistically) these things are from an 8800gt?

    I'm talking Batman Arkham/ Crysis/ UT3 on 21 inch monitor.

    Best thing is going to be a cross-review comparison. As this review includes a HD5770, take a look at the HD5770 Review: the nearest card in that line up to an 8800GT is the GTS250, which is based on the same core but with 128 cores compared to your 8800GT's 112 (so a little quicker than an 8800GT). In its own review the 5770 has a consistent clear lead over the GTS250 (which I believe has probably widened since the review due to driver enhancements), but in this one it sits way down at the bottom of this review, and in the normalised score used for the bang-4-buck it barely scores half as much as the tested GTX460 SOC. So in real terms, these are probably more than twice as quick as an 8800GT

    tl;dr?: they are so far ahead the 8800GT can't see them

    I upgraded from a 20" (1680x 1050) monitor to my current 23" (1920 x 1080) monitor about 2 years ago, and am pretty happy.
    It wasnt the revalation that I had from going to widescreen in the first place, but a useful upgrade non-the-less.

    Unfortunately that doesn't have any 4** series cards. Toms have done a roundup of more recent ones: http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/charts/2010-gaming-graphics-charts-high-quality/compare,2484.html?prod[4510]=on&prod[4544]=on

    i love the copper heatpipes, in comparison to 8800gt, i couldnt play crysis on highest settings and even on medium i had problems like al hiding behind rocks that wernt there etc, with gtx 460 plays everything on highest setting at 1680 or whatever screen resolution i have although hard to say how much of this is down to card as rest of hardware has been upgraded, i wouldnt use it with anything less than a 3ghz dual core though or you may risk bottle necking.

    Misprice unfortunately. Tried to order but bumped the price while at checkout
    Wanted to upgrade my 8800GT too.

    My MSI Cyclone idles at 24/5c - never going above 50c when Folding so temperature seems credible to me.

    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.
