    Am I seeing things? The Ice3 x1900xt's only £219...I've pressed f5 and everything and it stays the same.

    If this is some sort of horrible joke against me I'm not laughing..

    No your not seeing things, but thats the price excluding VAT. Once you include that its about £260 not including delivery.

    And you got my excited too, I thought that was the after tax price.

    Nice prices for a silent X1900XT!! :cool: I've seen one of those and they look very pretty.

    But I'm still happy with my Sapphire X1900XT @ £250 including VAT and delivery. :p Even if it is slightly noisier.

    received my card today, but it's rather funny as i bought it on friday, guess i should have waited till today then i could have saved £12... anyway it's idling at 51c right now, was playing CS:Source earlier with HDR on and the card went up to 70C maximum, but i was only playing for a little while, i think it's the noise reduction more than the temperature you will notice, it is very quiet though, i can't even hear mine on boot up that much.

    very nice price though especially for this card.

    Mine is idling at about 54 at the moment. But it is pretty warm in my room. Doesn't go above 65C while playing and that's with a bit of an overclock. Sounds like an A-380 taking off when the fans at full pelt though!

    78C maximum is pretty decent considering how hot is here in the UK. I have the standard cooler on mine and it gets up to 90C on hot humid days. :(

    Interestingly, it says '
    - Powered by ATI Radeon X1900XTX - 625MHz
    - 512MB-256bit 8 channel GDDR3 memory - 1.45GHz'

    LoL.. i noticed that as well... but i think it might be a typo, i haven't actually heard the fans at full pelt yet... but i shouldn't think it will be as loud as the stock cooler. One thing that surprised me about this graphics card was the weight, i took my 7800GTX out of my machine and then picked up the X1900XT and it weighed so much more. :p

    Would the ATI work in a NForce4 SLI mobo, in a single card configuration of course :)
