    Bah just wanted to say wow, what a nice upgrade it made..

    Today I got my new hardware installed, going from P4/6800GT/1GBram to X2 4400/X1900XTX/2GB ram - I am in heaven..

    Finally it was possible to play cs_militia with all high, loads of AA, HDR @ 1920x1200 - Damn CS is a new game now :)

    Gonna install HL2, Q4, FEAR - just to play 'em again!

    Thanks OCUK for the great price on the X1900XTX!!!

    How much of an upgrade is a x1900xtx to a 6800gt? Like a 50% increase or?

    Connect3D one is £319.95 +VAT (£375 Inc. VAT) - You won't find cheaper and for a card that destroys the 7800 GTX 512MB they are absolute bargains.

    Check out OcUK's X1900 section as they have the best range on the web and the prices are very competitive if not the best. :)

    ATI keep giving us support to further lower pricing and instead of pocketing the money we just pass on the savings to customers, unfortunately ATI are ending the rebate amounts and our stock is beginning to get low so when we come to re-buy were gonna have to pay more because of ATI ending the supported pricing and the poor dollar rates. So you've still had a good buy. :)

    I am happy with the card it just seems strange that it has got cheaper even though it was already on this week only. It was the same when I bought my Geil Value although i really shouldnt grumble as it was still much cheaper than any other Etailer

    One things for sure I'm not rushing to get one, I talked 2 of my mates into buying 2gb kits of ram and bought one myself then it went down instead of the expected increase, so my moneys staying in my pocket I would bet the prices will go down not up, anyone want to bet me?
