Great. Nothing wrong with it!

Going off your GPU/CPU combo id say it'll run about 60+ fps on WOW, and around 30-40 fps on skyrim @ 1920x1080 with close to if not max settings.

30-40FPS in Skyrim? Probably 60 or more at Ultra. The 7870 is in between the 570 and 580, and if you overclock it, close to the 7950 and better than a 580.

Hmm just outa curiosity What kind of FPS would I be looking at with a 7850? is the 7870 worth the extra £50?

The 7870 can be found for $220, which is around the same price as 7850s. HIS has a 7870 for $220.

7850 will run them at 60+FPS, no problem, but I'd stick to the 7870.
