Hey i'm jsut wondering if this card is a decent deal?

HIS HD 6950 IceQ X GDDR5 2048MB Native HDMI 2xDVI 2xMiniDP

Looking at the "new" sellers page a company called KLEN is selling the £250 card for £160, is this a good deal or is it not a good card, can't see any catches.

My budget for a card is £150-£200 and the only other card options i have are:

PowerColor HD 6950 1024MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card (£180)

Never heard of PowerColor curious if it is a decent brand

if it looks too good to be true....chances are, it is!
maybe they're selling one of those replacement stock cards or refurbished items.

The prices are in line with what we have here in the US. I know a little about the Pound vs. US dollar. We need to see your spec's and the PSU brand and model plus how many watts it is.

I know over here by law they have to disclose if it is refurbished or not and/or used. But that is here. The difference in the two cards you linked us to is, one has 2gb of Vram and the other with 1 gb of Vram.

To get the full benefit of the 2 gb of Vram is to have more than one monitor and your resolution is over 1920 x 1200. Unless you are doing that I would stick to the 1 gb do to the price.
