    Not bad. But I really would like a 27" monitor but the resolution is 2560 x 1440 which leaves me with about 30fps :( That's with games maxed out though, but then, future games are going to be around there even with compromised settings. I think to be safe I would really need a step up from this one and that's presumably going to be about £375 or so. Ouch.

    It's more expensive than a GTX570 and more importantly a GTX560TI 448 OC in the UK (the latter being basically identical to a GTX570 performance wise but ~ £60 cheaper).

    This doesn't in anyway make it a bad card just not great value once you consider the outright performance compared to cards already available around the same price point.

    5th March "Regardless, with a lot of uncertainty around price and availability for both the HD 7870 2GB and HD 7850 2GB, we’ve decided to hold fire on delivering a definitive score, at least until end-user pricing information becomes clearer."

    Hey,

    Here is the link to an interesting overview performance 7870 and 7850 of 5 Web sites competing Nvidia cards - GTX580 and GTX570 and penalties of the previous generation AMD - 6970 and 6950.

    Analysis of the results of the Radeon 7870 and 7850 in 12 games and 5 resolutions:
    http://translate.google.pl/translat...03/analiza-wynikow-radeona-7870-i-7850-w.html


    You will know the relationship between average interest rates these cards and you will find out in which graphics card is better in the game and resolution.
