    Won't be buying but thats a top deal.
    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.

    I bought a secondhand XFX HD5850 1GB Black Edition with a copy of DiRT2 for around £90 a few months ago. I probably should have waited a bit longer in hindsight but hopefully it will do the job until next year.

    Just a heads up - The XFX HD 6850 version is known to have a cheap PCB and a none reference design which stops the usual tweaking utilities from working.

    I don't know if this card is the same, so you'll need to wait for someone to confirm.

    Other brands around around £10 more and have significantly better after sales support / RMA if needed, so they might be worth considering to.

    Funnily enough I did the same & bought a 5850 for that price, the 6xxx range didn´t tempt me at that point for the difference in price, for $130 (on hols, no pound sign!) I might be tempted.

    Although XFX.... #sucks in air through teeth#

    That said the difference isn´t exactly mind blowing... http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/290?vs=295

    I wouldn't be too bothered I've got a 5850 and must say it runs everything I throw at it admirably!
