Preferably from the EU (due to shipping and customs costs) but any area considered.
Edit on request: Obviously later releases will be given preference over older cards.

I'm considering any one of these cards:

HD 7850
HD 5870
GTX 480
HD 6870
HD 6950
GTX 660
HD7950
HD 7870
GTX 580

In the lack of offers for above I might also consider:

HD 5850
GTX 470
GTX 295
HD 4870x2

Please quote your offers + shipping to EU (Malta).

What about a gtx 460 2win for 200$, plus 40-50$ for sending it to you, probably less using snail mail? So 240-250$ for a little more performance than a gtx 580 and a transferable lifetime warranty. PM me if interested.

Thanks for the offers so far.
I'll be waiting for some members from the EU to pop in hopefully... But as I said, I'll be considering everything.

In the meantime, I'd appreciate if you check about shipping to Malta and quote me price + shipping.
Thanks.

I'm still open to suggestions.

In the meantime, someone in my same locality offered me a used 560 Ti for €130... is it good value? I won't be paying shipping because I'd pick it up myself. It's tempting because the card isn't that old.

Well i had one previous to my current card and it was great, it's 10% faster than a 5850 that you were considering and pretty much equal to the 5870 so it's well within the range you are looking at, I would say that price is reasonable, maybe at the expensive end of reasonable but reasonable nonetheless :)
