You can't beat a good bargain in the weeks running up to Christmas, and Ebuyer.com appears to have a cracker in the form of an XFX Radeon HD 5870 1GB graphics card priced at £189.99.

The product, pictured above, is about to come up against the imminent GeForce GTX 570 and will eventually be superceded by the next-generation Radeon HD 6950, but at this price, it's hard to ignore.

With Ebuyer slashing £44.50 off the usual price, it's easily the cheapest Radeon HD 5870 we've ever seen. To put the £189.99 price tag into perspective, this card launched at over £300 back in 2009.

Head back to our in-depth review for a closer look at the card's architecture, and if you're ready to make the jump, point your browser and credit card at Ebuyer.com.

[Update] Ebuyer has since raised the asking price back up to £234.49. The best deals as of 9am on Tuesday, December 7th, are £187.99 at overclockers.co.uk or £206.31 at scan.co.uk.

[Update 2] Ebuyer's price is back down to £189.99.

Wowsers. That's damn tempting. Shall I go for crossfire 5870s…? :help:
I was thinking exactly the same thing and did!

Overclockers have the XFX slightly cheaper than ebuyer atm but have there “own” ones at the £179.99 so snapped one up to go with my exisiting 5870.

Should be good but im not impressed by their delivery charges tho.
Hmmm… Can I justify XF 5870s? Nothing I play at the moment is anywhere near pushing the single card I use as things stand, and buying a second card to fold on would just be an extravance (especially as folding doesn't play nicley with XF cards.
Will it blow up if you look at it, XFX style?
Ordered. Should be a good step up from my GTX275, and a good bit faster than a GTX460 too :).
