Which one? (low budget)

EVGA Gtx 570 1280MB - 250€

Sapphire HD 7870 2GB - 300€

the HD 7870 is a bit better than the gtx 570 but I'll be playing on a 1080p (1920x1080) and their performance is kinda the same at that resolution.

the gtx 570 is 50€ cheaper too!

The preformace of the 7870 is going to be smother than the 570, even at 1920x1080. This isn't a big deal for older games, but newer ones are going to be quite a bit nicer with the 7870. The 7850 is the card that's more comparable with the 570.

And if I buy a Hd 7870, which one is the best?

If you have the money and it isn't going to hurt your rent or anything I'd say it is. I'd look around at a couple of sites though, in Canada (and I guess the US too) the two cards are only about $35-$40 more for the 7870.

The Gigabyte card should overclock quite well with that fan if you're looking to do that. You can push the 7870 to 7950 (stock) speeds on a good overclock.
