Finally upgrading

Right, I've said this a few times but I will be grabbing a new graphics card now.

Can anybody suggest a decent one? I was looking at 7870's and 7950's, any advice would be appreciated

Re: Finally upgrading

What budget? / Screen?
What games are performing badly that you need extra FPS from?

Budget is about 300? Wouldn't mind going under that though. Screen is Dell u2410 x 2.

I can still run at medium or above on all games but want to upgrade so I can give Harrie's sister my current graphics card (ati radeon 5770 hd).

Re: Finally upgrading

It costs just under 300 and is the fastest for the price.

Re: Finally upgrading

Yea what I mean is I didn't look at its stock clock speeds, Sometimes you can get higher clocked cards for the same money.
