hello

im planning to upgrade my current gtx 260 with one of the following

http://www.scan.co.uk/products/2gb-gigabyte-radeon-hd-7... £188

http://www.scan.co.uk/products/2gb-msi-r7850-power-edit... £191

or would paying an extra £20 (because scan charges ~£10 for delivery) for a 7870 be better although they have worse coolers?

I believe 7870 is worth it, or even maybe a 660TI.

the 660ti is too expensive atm as i only see 660ti's prices at £240+, i can only just afford the cheapest coolers with my budget.

i am just wondering would the better cooler and lower price and also lower power of the 7850 be a better investment over the slightly more expensive 7870 that runs faster but uses more power and has a worse cooler?
