Best Deals for Graphic Cards

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hi I wasn't sure where to post this, but I decided to put it in Graphics Card general section as I am looking for websites that sell Graphics Cards cheaply.
I am looking for a website that does good deals on good graphics cards, i'm mainly looking for AMD Radeon 6950s/6970s. I have most of my new rig but I am having difficulty finding good cards for good prices. I was just wondering if anyone knew of any good websites (preferably UK to save on shipping) that sell Graphics Cards (or even components as im still missing PSU and a few minor things) in good deals/provide daily deals which can save a lot of money.

Well i get all my stuff usualy from www.scan.co.uk because i find them quite reliable, im also quite impressed with www.lambda-tek.com, got a couple of things from there and the service was 5 star and the prices were quite competitive but their site is a bit messy.
There is also www.Ebuyer.co.uk, www.overclockers.co.uk, www.aria.co.uk, etc
You can also type the said product on google and check the shopping bar and see what sellers come up, just make sure to check for reviews for non trusted companies, i once made a mistake to get a keyboard from Gameseek.co.uk like that without reading reviews and almost got a scam, had to contact consumers direct and all sorts to get my cash back. Bastards!

Sizuke : Thank you, I haven't heard of lambdatek so I shall check them out, I've checked Aria to no avail and I use scan mostly too but wondering if theres other prices anywhere, I haven't checked overclockers either yet so I shall check it!

Armand : I do look at it occasionally but im a terrible bidder and for graphics cards most of the time you have to get in bids lol

I use ebuyer mainly but also go to scan for bits and bobs as I don't live too far from it.

Thank you Wooly, the search you posted had a Sapphire Radeon HD 6970 for around £265 free delivery, which is £50 more than I wanted to pay but I really want the 6970 over 6950 lol

you can flash a 6950 to a 6970 can't you? I don't know much about it myself but it's something everybody is raving about lately

Yeap, its what I was gonna do originally but it was explained to me the method AMD are using to limit the cards is when components arrive which aren't good enough for the 6970 they use them in the 6950 as they should be fine with it, but when unlocked to the 6970 in some cases the card can break down due to the components being able to do it but of a crap quality lol
I would still want to do this but I don't have money to risk on something like that, if I could be guaranteed if it breaks to get a new one or that the card is of good quality then I would but otherwise i'd rather try get a 6970 for around same price as 6950 lol

Tigerdirect is a decent company I've gotten all my goods on time except for once where they gave me the wrong tracking number
