HI i wanted to spend about £150 on a graphics card for a new pc and wondered which you guys think would be best, i could get the 1gb 5870 for £147.99 a 2gb 6950 for £162.99 or a 1gb 560ti for £142 or is there any cards im overlooking,should i wait till the 7850 and 7870 come out?they come out in march thanks

I wouldn't even consider a 5870 in that group - both the other cards are far and above much better cards. Its going to pretty much be a tie between the 560ti and 6870 and is really going to be dependent on the games that you play - i personally prefer the nvidia side of things as they have better driver support and things just work better IMO. Just my 2 cents though smile.gif

was thining thing is quite an old card now,the 6870 is far less than the other cards as is around £120 so does that make that much better value? would it be worth the extra £30 or £40 for the 560ti or 1gb 6950 over 6870 on games such as bf3 and skyrim
