Also make sure you buy a card that will fit in your case. Some non-reference cards are pretty long, for example the his iceq 7850 is 11.7", and many cases won't fit that.

For 'about 170 quid' the HD787 is your top choice, just check your powersupply has the output and connectors to feed it.
Have a gander here: Dabs, Misco, Pixmania, Scan, CCL, Novatech, Overclockers, Aria and Ebuyer...Amongst others ;) .

you forgot to mention what is you wattage on your power supply (PSU) you will need a minimum of 500 watts for these cards. be sure to check yours.


A decent 450W model such as an Antec VP-450 or an XFX 450W would be more than enough. There's no need to get a 500W model with those for OP's system. Now if OP goes for a 7870 or a 660 Ti, then something with a little more power delivery such as a CX 500 80+ Bronze or an Antec 520W (never get the CX/Builder series models that aren't Bronze because they're older, less reliable designs) will be necessary.
