Hi guys,

I was planning on running two 6870 in crossfire however my motherboards other pci is only x4 instead of 16. Meaning I won't get the best performance from crossfire, I was wondering what would the best upgrade be from this card in the £300 range? any advise would be great

Thanks A lot

hd7950 is the best option for you. its faster than two 6870 in crossfire and will consume less power. and its really good value right now
