Ok I need to get a graphics card for my new system that will fit the following:


    Under £300
    Shorter than 140mm (5.51181102 inches)
    HDMI connector
    Run 1080p on 32" display
    Play Modern Games at around 30 FPS or preferably higher


Im happy to Dual SLI/Cross fire. The only major limitation is the length as my reservoir in restricting the length (No im not moving the reservoir if that's what your thinking). The Heat generated by the graphics card would preferably be moved through the PCI-E but I am happy to vent into the case because of the five 140mm fans.

One example is a Gainward GTX 660 golden sample.

Thanks for any suggestions or help!

System Specs:

i7 3770K
Asus Sabertooth z77
CX750M power supply (750 watt)
8GB (2x4GB) Patriot DDR3 Ram
Fractal Design R4 case

Cooling (Custom liquid cooled cpu):
5x 140mm Silent series fans
XSPC Raystorm intel
280mm radiator
150mm Bitspower z-multi reservoir
Laing DDC-1T pump
XSPC clear tubing
Mayhems Blood Red premix

GTX760 or HD7950. Both of which are able to provide a good amount of fps at 1080p. FPS will definitely be above 30 no matter how much stuff you turn up. Except crysis 3 that is.

The 7970 OC at 1Ghz from MSI should be awesome!!

Video Card: MSI Radeon HD 7970 3GB Video Card (£289.99 @ Novatech)

It can play any game maxed out easily at more than 30 FPS . And the frames won't ever drop below 30 FPS. This is the best you can get for the price
If this answer helped, then don't forget to select it as the best answer, i would definitely appreciate it.
