I would recommend a GTX 560 as they are good overclockers (can hit 1ghz core). Though I am sort of an nVidia fan boy...haha.

I have 2 6870's that I am willing to part with, practically brand new. I justbought a 6990 and don't need them any longer. I would sell both for 360 dollars / 260 euro / 225 pounds

or single card for half that plus 5. I live in germany but can ship US via my military box, I can also ship in europe via Deutsche post.

isnt a 5870 far better than the gtx 460,for the same price you could get the 470 which is according to benchmarks and reviews more or less the same just far more power hungry was just seing if i was overlooking anything

If you can spend about £30 more, you can get the beastly GTX480 from OC UK

Thats what I would do.
