That would be my personal way of approaching this upgrade. IMO to buy into this current generation of graphics cards now is a bit of a waste, £200 is not exactly in the budget end of the graphics card market, so by waiting a few months you will be able to see what sort of performance the new generation of GPU's offer so you might get more for your money. On the flipside if you think the new cards don't offer much over the current generation, there will be lots of HD6000 and GTX500 cards floating about the marketplace as others have upgraded, so you will probably be able to get your hands on a much more powerful card for your money than a GTX560 or HD6950.

Yep, they're unlockable and have a capable cooler. TF3's are non-ref PCB with Analog power though. Meaning reference is still better in PCB quality/unlocking chance. Twin-Frozr cools better BTW. I'd get the reference I posted myself, but you can get it. It's solid.

I think il go for the TF3 as its a bit cheaper a bit higher clocked and im not going to unlock it as it is just a card to get me to DX11 until i can afford to go 3D with nvidia i think that TF3 will make a great addition to my rig thanks for the help everyone
