Hi all, i'm building a custom pc and can not decide which gpu to go for . Below are the components that i want to buy - hoping to play games on ultra settings. Goods are being bought from scan.co.uk where i would like to buy the gpu as well. My budget for the card is £200, please also let me know if you would change any of the components or recommend any changes. Thanks

Intel Core i5 3570K
Gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3H
8GB (2x4GB) Corsair DDR3 Vengeance (1600)
120GB PNY XLR8, 2.5" SSD, SATA III

Just been browsing through Aria and they do finance as well so might try them instead

They have a good deal on the SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7950 Tahiti - would you guys recommend it?

I recommend at least normal 7870 if not 7870 Tahiti LE.

So the 7950 is not better than 7870?? Also is 8GB of ram enough - gaming and some photoshop editing?

Sorry to ask so many questions...

Yeah get it all from aria if they do finance and that 7950 looks like a good deal too.

If your able to do it, the 7950 will perform better and have a better life span. The 7870 is a great card and would work well for you but if you can get the 7950, that is worth it.

What is your opinion on the fans for the above cards? Is 1 fan enough to cool the card? I won't be overclocking just yet, maybe in the future but would probably go for an additional fan for the case if it helps.

If you plan to overclock at all, you can avoid a dual fan setup if your case has enough ventilation.
