I probably don't play or own enough games to truely have the need for a HD7950 but it was the free games in the end that persuaded me to go with one, a friend of mine has offered me £40 for 2 of them anyways which mean's I've only paid £200 for a HD7950 which isn't bad going by any means. possibly £180 if I choose to sell the other game aswel + I'm selling my GTX460 for £80 to another friend which makes £100 for an upgrade. :D
Meh, I sold my 570 for £130 and got sleeping dogs worth at least £20 so got my Vapor-X 7950 for £110, that's the way I look at upgrades too :D

£260 for the Vapor-X? Wish I'd of been looking for a new card when you was, I could only find it for £280 which was just out of my price range at the time, damn animals and vet bills... They alone this month would of brought me another 7950 at least. :(

That's a good price!

You know when using Trixx, it say's I'm running my card on PCI-E 1.1... Just want to be safe, is there any PCI/PCI-E drivers that should usually be installed or is this just another false reading?

Does this look a little odd to you guy's for stock clocks on a 3Dmark Vantage run?

... Was going to upload a photo but it'll be easier for me to just type.

3Dmark score - 16743

GPU score - 17825
CPU score 14163

See my system specs for what I'm running without the GTX460 though.

Yea, I don't shop there often, when I do it's usually cause I've found something at a good price like the 7950 I linked too, that's a damn good price for that card. I bought an 4850 from there years ago knowing about their reputation but it came with no issues, they even RMA'd it for me about a month after the standard 1 year warranty, not sure if they just didn't pick up on it or not.

Exactly... my old GTX460 scored 16k with stock clocks... I'm wondering what the problem is, the 7950 seems to play Sleeping dogs alright and got an average of 40fp/s on furmark 1080 benchmark.

I really wouldn't worry about it tbh, Vantage is old anyway, I sometimes get funky results on the likes of 03/06 etc on modern hardware, at least you know your 3DMark11 score is fine.

On another note, I happen to find Vantage the ugliest benchmark I have ever seen, it really is a POS looks wise, heck even 3DMark01 looked better for it's time.

How old are you? seems to me your over 21 which means good prices :eek:
I did check compare the market with some fake stuff came out to £5000~ (WHICH is not bad compared with prices of buying a car) through some random ones. Might check with LV our current insurers could be a bit less considering my parents have about 11 years no claims each
I have to roll with a car with a maximum 1 litre engine for insurance below £2000 at the moment. Getting insured for anything bigger under 21 (by a mere few months) costs you half your damn soul in this country. They were supposed to bring insurance for women up and men down to a halfway point, instead they decided to bring women up to men's prices...
My boss pays a little under £300 a year for his VW estate brand new, and Admiral come out cheapest for a Honda civic at £5000?! Sadly i have to roll with a second hand micro or a new Pixo on finance...

GTX 670 or HD7950 and why? :)
Asus GTX 670 Direct CU II Top - W1zz gave it a 10/10, awesome clocks on core and memory, and silent as a sparrow's fart.

No explanation needed here, this is a club house for all of the TPU UK crew to talk about all things british or just to get together and do the usual British thing of moaning about everything non-british, we like to moan cause were British. Feel free to bitch, moan, whine, rejoice and just general chit chat for all us Brits about the things that make us tick or make our blood boil clicking here .
