Best graphics card for a £600 custom gaming build?

What would be the best card for me to play most of the latest games on ultra settings and how often do you have to upgrade to a new card?

  1. is your budget for the total system? how much of that do you have allocated for a gpu?
  2. I'd say something like this:
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Asus-GeForce-560TI-DirectCUII-Graphics/dp/B004K8R8DA

    And I think you should be fine for around 3 years with that card.
  3. I could stretch to about £600-£700 but i was hoping that i could get a good card and processor for about half the budget so £200-£300?
  4. I've got even better deal for you: GTX 480. How do you like this build?

    Nice build but I would substitute the 480 for an amd hd 7850. The 480 consumes almost as much power as a dual GPU 5970. I think 500w is a bit underpowered for a 480.

    If you further need to save money swap out the 3570k for a 2500k.
  6. HD 7850 is much more expensive. 500 watts for 480 is more than enough, I don't know why you think it is not. Why pay more for HD 7850 when it performs worse than GTX 480 which is cheaper?
