Is about £50 cheaper than anywhere else.

Must be because the GTX265 & GTX295 are imminent.

Fair one, although if Belloni is gonna get an SLI mobo then personally i would get a 9800GTX+ then SLI it as they scale better than a GTX 280, GTX 260 or 280 in SLI is not worth the money.

That’s a great price for the GTX 280. I am quite tempted by that. I have a BFG 8800GT atm how much do you reckon I would get for it on Ebay? Cost £170 12months ago.

Yeah me to BFG do seem to know there stuff, when ever I have had a problem they have always been really helpfull. I have never had to RMA a card back so don't really know what they returns are like I now that all there replacement cards are refurbished. as for Leadtek I have never used them. the next card I will get will be BFG. :)

Good price V_R :thumb:

That's what I paid for my BFG GTX99800 512Mb about ten months ago :(

I won't be upgrading for the time being though, my card is handling everything just fine and a TV is first on the agenda anyway.
