7870 advice

I'm getting a 7870 and I want to oveclock it as much as posible, but then there's all these cards with different coolers and stuff like that. I wanted some advice to know which 1 would be best for overclocking. I've been looking at cards from xfx, msi, gigabyte, saphire etc... My budget is £180.

PC Specs :
CPU - AMD Phenom II X4 955 @ 3.20Ghz ( Getting an i5 next year )
Motherboard - Gigabyte-GA-MA770T-UD3 ( Getting a new motherboard next year )
GPU - Saphire 6670 1GB DDR5
PSU - TOQO 480W ( Getting a Corsair CX600 when i get the gpu )

Thanks!:)

  1. You should increase your budget to 200.
    There are many good cards in that range.

    Get this: http://www.amazon.co.uk/MSI-7870-Frozr-Graphics-PCI-E/dp/B007IG2SFO/ref=sr_1_5?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1354976736&sr=1-5
  2. Would that card run(overclocked) on my psu? It's just if i increase my budget to 200 i don't have a lot of money for a psu!:S
  3. Well OCing on that PSU is a risky thing I guess. Recommended is 500w and you'll even OC.

    You can drop to 7850 or don't go for OC. Get a simple 7870.

    The cheapest 7870 : http://www.amazon.co.uk/EVGA-GeForce-GDDR5-Graphics-Card/dp/B0099AOD50/ref=sr_1_1?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1354977321&sr=1-1
  4. That looks great.
  5. Thanks:)
  6. I'll problably get that seing as it's cheaper!
  7. I don't know whether this card is better or not.
    But I own this and it slams every game on highest possible settings.

    In my Opinion, MSI GTX 660 is better. But you should ask others too before buying.
