    Hd 6850

    Well i think i am going to buy a 6850 but I am looking for the quietest , relatively cheap and with a minimum warranty of 2 years. I think the best one for that is the asus 6850 i saw one at scan for £148 anyone know of any place where it is cheaper.

    You can check on skinflint which covers most major electronic retailers. Thumbs up for that card as well, runs cool and effectively silent on my girlfriends pc.

    I would wait a few weeks more until the GTX560 is released. The HD6850 1GB should be under £140 TBH.

    Re: Hd 6850

    Have read good things about the £147 dual fan version from XFX too for temps and noise. A couple of reviews here, this is for the Black Edition with same cooler and the Regular Dual fan version. On a side note, also saw several reviews saying the single fan version from XFX did well on Temps but was pretty loud, so avoid that one.

    Also with XFX you're looking at 2years warranty so worth considering along side the Asus imo.

    Re: Hd 6850

    25th of Jan for the 560 apparently.
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    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.

    The HD6850 1GB should be nearer £130 as it was available at launch for around this price.
