Best bang for buck GPU £220 folks

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Looking to upgrade and £220 is my absolute limit (stretched).

Or if possible using the same budget (if performance would not be much improved from 5770 for 220) include a new cpu cooler. Eg could get a h50 for £50, leaving £170 for gpu. Ty in advance

Actully I would buy this because it's the same (it has the chance to unlock too) but the cooler is much better. They both offer 2 year warranty but with PowerColor you don't have to register so its easier when you resell.

5770 cf not a good option, not very future proof.

for about 200 quid, definitely go for a 6950, you can unlock and cf if you wish. here is a link from scan, its a fiver more than the xfx card on overclockers, but it has a redesigned cooler, should improve thermal hence overclocking ability

You linked to a 6950 1Gb, A card which is more expensive then the 2Gb XFX card I linked to.

+Rep for all 3 confirming my instincts. Gonna buy it this week and then sell my 5770.

Just really got the itch to upgrade, want better performance and frame rates badly.
