    The price is probably down to the products being OEM or refurbs as stated on the upper right of the page. If this doesn't matter then it might be worth considering, depending on the experiences of customers.

    Only an 08700 number listed there which is National Rate, not good if you start having problems :( . If you're in the area, you could pop down and see if they have a store or warehouse of some sort:

    overclockers have a brand new leadtek for around £88, they are a good firm, bought various bits from them and always delivered nice and on time in good packaging, no problems with the item etc.....

    Cheers for the replies.

    Spoke to father-in-law who wants the upgrade and after clarifying exactly what sort of games he wants to play i decided a 6600gt would have been overkill anyway so got him a XFX 256mb FX5500.

    this card was only £35 so allowed his spend to stretch to 1gb of RAM which was more of a priority.
