Hey there mate , i myself also live in Greece , you should take a look at these sites http://www.computeruniverse.net/en/
www.amazon.co.uk
Prices in Greece are ridiculous compared to the rest of Europe , you could get the same card for cheaper with shipping included practically in any European site that ships to Europe thumb.gif

As far as overclocking the 7950 has a lot of Oc headroom , i'd stick with Sapphire or MSI tho biggrin.gif

I found it for 265 euros used for like 10 days which is a pretty sweet price. So this specific card is as good for overclocking as the others are?? It has 800MHz core clock and 1250MHz memory.

There;s no immediate answer to your question , like every card , it depends on the chip lottery , i've seen cards do 1350+ on air and cards that throttle once they hit 1150 , the 7950 is known for having mostly good overclocking potential , but from there on it depends on the chip thumb.gif
