£145 for a 512MB version, what a price...

Gutted to leave ATi, but im in the market for a new card, and I just couldnt pass up a deal like that (on par with the 3870 in terms of price)

EDIT: After this, ive promised my self that I wont upgrade again within 12 months... I hope i can mamage.

Heh, good luck with that. I just sold one of my GT cards, the other 2 hopefully will sell this weekend.

Do you guys think that the rest of my system (in particular the CPU) will be a bottleneck for the card?

What resolution do you use?

Can you get your e6300 any higher than 2.8ghz?

I use 1280x1024. My e6300 can be pushed to 3.3GHz, but that requires some scary voltages, i would only be really happy pushing it to 2.9GHz.

It shouldn't be a bottleneck, or at least a noticeable one. Have fun with your new card!

Scary voltages?

Scary voltages on a C2D are 1.55v+ ....I highly doubt it takes that much to reach 3.3ghz.

Anyway you should be very pleased.
