So I'm thinking 7950 or 7970 if I can squeeze a bit more £ into it, but which one do I go for and which version gigabyte, msi etc.

  1. you can get an msi 7970 from scan for £235
  2. The Gigabyte WindForce cards and MSI's TwinFrozr cards are both very good varieties of 7950 and 7970.
  3. I just want a card that will run most games like skyrim, fallout new vegas and other good modern games at ultra settings :D

    I heard this card was really bad at over heating because of it having only 1 fan :(

    I wouldn't really be concerned so much about heat on this card. Typical GPUs can reach temps of 80C normally. The fan will also increase its speed automatically if the card reaches a certain temperature.

    It will run cooler if you have a couple of decent case fans, too.
