An upgrade from a GTX 560 SE 1GB

Hi all,

I've been looking around and wondering what would be a wise choice for an upgrade from a GTX 560 SE 1GB. I'm limited to PCIE 2.0 due to the motherboard.

The CPU is an AMD FX-4 4170 Black Edition 4 Core 4.2GHz Socket AM3+ which is not overlocked. The PC also has 8GB ram on a Windows 7 64 bit system.

I've been looking on but some extra advice or feedback would also be nice.

What's your budget? Chances are, anything above $250 will be bottlenecked by your CPU. The AMD Radeon 7870 XT should be a significant upgrade, but you may need to buy a new CPU, like the FX 6300 or the FX 8350.

I was looking to upgrade just the GPU and kinda sticking with PCIE 2.0 for awhile yet.

Another quick question! When is the SABERTOOTH 990FX/GEN3 R2.0 meant to be released in the UK? I've read March and April release dates.
