Graphics Card Advice (£225 range)

Hi there and thanks for reading this.

I recently applied for young enterprise funding and won money for a PC project which i will use to promote awareness of what i do. For this reason the Pc will be mainly for show so the whole system will be fully watercooled and modded. I had a £1200 budget but only set £225 aside for graphics and £75 for Graphics card waterblocks as i mainly budgeted for looks of the case etc. So- I have £225 to spend on a GPU(s) and was wondering what your advice would be?

I am up for the idea of running 2 £115 cards in SLI/Crossfire but was wondering if you think i would be better off getting one £225 card.

Please throw all ideas and thoughts forward.

The cards will be alongside a 2500k and a 850w Corsair PSU.

Many Thanks Guys!

  1. ordering from anywhere in uk. scan.co.uk, dabs.co.uk or amazon.co.uk or ebay maybe...
  2. You wont find any cards worth water-cooling at £115

    @ £225 you can get any of the GTX560ti 448 Cards

    Or you could go for a reference GTX570 - which should be great for choices of water-block. - http://www.scan.co.uk/products/1280mb-pny-gtx-570-40nm-3800mhz-gddr5-gpu-732mhz-shader-1464mhz-480-cores-dl-dvi-mhdmi

    Another choice would be a reference AMD Radeon 6950 2GB - Another one which should be easy to water-cool - http://www.scan.co.uk/products/2gb-xfx-hd-6950-xxx-pcie-21-%28x16%29-5200mhz-gddr5-gpu-830mhz-1408-cores-hdmi-2x-mini-displayport-2x-dv

    For performance @1080p the GTX570 will be your best bet out of these.

    Otherwise, if possible, wait for the AMD Radeon 78xx series and their respective water-blocks to be released. (I'm assuming this may not be possible due to project time constraints)
