    Hello. Is this card still available? if it is, how old is it? And does it still have the warranty?
    I`m an nvidia fan, but interested in a change.

    Hi!
    Its around 2.5 - 3 years old I guess so no warranty I'm afraid.
    However, it has been well looked after and is in really nice condition.
    I keep the inside of my PC clean so there is minimal dust on the cooler.
    Its a nice card, runs everything but the very latest beastly games on highest settings with fsaa.
    The newest and most hungry game I played on it was the new tomb raider. At 1080p I had everything on high, not ultra, and I was getting a solid 60fps, with no slowdowns and v-sync on. Ultra gave me around 40-45fps.
    Not bad for £75 :)

    Nat.

    Thanks for your repy.
    I dunno. I`m new to ATI and at 3 years old that`s pretty old with no warranty. I`m on a very tight budget and this is a bit of a risk.

    Would you consider £60 posted?

    Hmm ok first of all this card has not been thrashed at all, no overclocking and only a low to medium amount of gaming done on it - I just don't get the time to sit for hours playing games these days, kids, job etc

    I'm sure you have had a look around to see what this card is capable of, but for reference, on my system, which is an i5 2500k (not overclocked) with 8GB RAM, this card does a damn good job eg: BlackOpsII with everything on max runs at 1080p at a solid 60fps with v-sync on (no slowdowns).

    Wipes the floor with the PS3 and Xbox360 of course and overall looks pretty next gen. You will struggle with Battlefield 4, hell even my new R9 290 card only just about stays above 60fps with everything maxxed out (v-sync off).

    I have considered your offer and I would be willing to drop the price a little.
    I am done with using cheap couriers though, insurance is a joke, I have lost out a couple of times now thanks to these clowns hence my stating that collection is preferred.

    Postage with someone half decent like Parcelforce isn't cheap, around a tenner, but at least there is a very good chance of you receiving the card in the same condition that it left me in.

    I don't really want to go any lower than £70 delivered to be honest, after paying for the courier I will be left with £60 for the card and I think that's fair.

    Nat.

    Well replied.

    I certainly understand your points. I know it`s annoying to be questioned when you feel you`ve made a fair deal, but I had to check. However, thanks for clarifying.

    I`ll push myself and take it at £70 posted then.
