both seem the same go for the cheaper one, if both the same price get the 2.0.
and why not put the extra towards a i7 2600k?

There both the same price give or take difference on delivery. The rev 2 has pci express 3 for later on down the road. the rev 1 appears to have more raid options, thou i dont think ill use it.

go for the pcie 3.0 then as most new cards are pcie 3.0. you should also look at the 7850, i just upgraded my 6870 to a 7850. and is only £50 more

Well if 50 more i guess its worth it. might have to look on the gpu compare thing

my 7850 overclocks to 1200 core clock it has very good overclocking

Thats what i have read, you need to overclock them to make them good. Someone said Gtx 560 ti, about the same price but better?? Thoughts,,,
