Hey guys i've been out of the hardware game for good 3 years now,thinking of upgrading my GPU and case.
Now budget wise i only want spend £200 or less.
Choice are MSI OC 7850 1GB +Corsair 200R = £186.26
or get MSI GTX660 OC 2GB+Corsair 200R=£199.03.

Or should i wait for 700 and 8000 series to be announced?

You will be waiting until the end of the year for new cards... assuming that is their naming convention too...

That said, for 1080p gaming, you really should get a 2GB card...

Case choice is yours...
