New GPu help :)

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I live in a UK and I'm trying to find best GPU I can for around £280, I have been thinking of 7970 or 670 (Even refurbished would be fine). I have no personal preference on what store I would get it from just make sure it's real. Thanks in advance.

for a 7950, 660ti or 670 you would be looking at £240+

for ~£200 you would be looking at a 660, 7870 or 7870XT

For £200 you may be able to get a reference 660 Ti or 7950 if you really search around but your best bet is the 7870 Tahiti LE card.
