Im having to send my MSI R6970 Lighting back to Novatech, but If they give me an exchange whats the best Graphics i can get for around the £250 area, I got my 6970 in the sale for £199. My motherboard has a PCIE 2.0 slot so i think im limited to what i can fit... :/

You can get a PCI-E 3 card to run in a 2.0 slot so you're not limited to any cards at all.

7950 or a GTX670 if you can find one cheap enough.

Also, 7950 for definite and but as above suggested I don't see you getting a 670 for 250£.

AMD - 7950 ( http://www.novatech.co.uk/products/components/amdradeongraphicscards/amdhd7950series/gv-r795wf3-3gd.html )
Does it matter that my MB is PCIE 2.0 and these cards are PCIE 3.0 ?
