Thanks everyone tongue.gif

GTX 660 off the list.

My 7850 is just the standard OC edition, a single 92mm fan which is very quiet.

Also I would go for a second hand except I've never had good experiences when buying used cards off people frown.gif

Problem is the 7950 is too expensive, the 7870 LE seems to be the sweet spot. That said without proper cooling? The one's I look at is the XFX double heat thingy, and a standard VTX3D which what looks like the most oldest reference cooler in the world, the horrible shield with a single 80mm fan it seems.


270X seems like sweet spot as you're all saying tongue.gif MSI Gaming it is. Same fans as the twin frost thumb.gif


Thanks everyone for inputs very helpful, +reps thumb.gif

Yeah I think even if I was rich I wouldn't like spending that amount on a card. Bit of a cheap skate tongue.gif
