post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello, I'm debating whether to get the Asus HD 7870 AMD Radeon DirectCU II Graphics card or the Asus HD 7870 AMD Radeon DirectCU II Top Graphics Card. I'm just don't know if it is worth the extra £40 for the 7870 Top Graphics Card...

My Rig I'll be running the, with
Intel i5 3570k
6GB of RAM DDR3 1600Mhz
Corsair CX500w
Crap loads of Corsair Fans.
