Mobo: ASrock z77 oc formula

CPU: i5 3570k

Cooler: akasa voodoo venom multi fan (extremely large)

Plus 7 fans

Case: full tower nzxt phantom enthusiast

Ram: corsair 16gb vengeance

Psu: cooler master m2 1000w

The gpu I'm looking for is something that will play bf3 on ultra and other games fine, ranging from £150- £250 maybe push a little more but rather not, I'm using a 22inch monitor hd.

I have a gpu in mind which is the Gigabyte ATI Radeon HD 7870 OC Windforce 3X 2048MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card from overclockers

Any advice on any of my planned system I would appreciate but it's mainly the gpu I'm unsure of

i dont know where you are in the world but here is an example of the GPU I would use for you build. Spend the money and go big and get a 7970 card like this. It will play any game on the market on ultra and you get 3 free games with the purchase:

SAPPHIRE Vapor-X 100351VXSR Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition 3GB $384

Having said that 384 dollars is 245 English pounds which isn't too bad it's just finding it in the uk for that price that's my issue now as new egg will have shipping fees if I ship internationally

I've found the card you suggested on eBay shipped from America totalling 250 English pounds the card I showed you on amazon is only 201 English pounds is it worth the extra 50 pound to go to the card you initially suggested or get the one I found on amazon p.s thank you for your help

Get the one on Amazon, shipping international could take awhile. The card you linked is very good as well. It will play those games on ultra.
