  1. I'm not sure about the uk but in the us we can get the 7870 for about $220 or about 145 pounds. If so I would definitely get the 7870, as it is the best in it's price range.

    cheapest i can find is like 175, where did u find one in that price range
  3. I live in the US so our pricing is different. I'm not sure how that works, but a 7870 is $220-$250 on newegg here.
  4. Hi, I totally agree with the last poster, here, this is a link for a £163 if you can afford the £3 >_<

    I've been looking for a good card for weeks around the £170 mark and have found many deals, that being one of the lower ones.

    P.S. Also you can try this site, but weirdly they are selling 2 different sapphire hd 7870 with a £10 difference £151-£161. Dunno whats going on there, I'm steering clear but it is a well reviewed site and if you want to gamble go for it ;)

    P.S.S Haha just found another deal at the £159 price point (w/o VAT £132.50), don't know about pixmania like, but here's the link anyway ;)
