Been spying on this review for a while .

So its not the most powerful card in the world. But it can be had for £120. VFM wise i can't see anything better atm. Rather tempting to pick up 2.

8x 8x config might not work too bad with these cards actually. Especially at the price. Doesn't matter too much if you loose a few fps thru PCI-E bottlenecks

Aye, just worried about the fact they might need PCI-e v.2

Nice review m8. Looks like ATI are slowly clawing back some performance.

XFX should come across to the Red camp

Great review as ever Jim, the cost per frame is simply staggering on this card, much lower than nvidia
