    6870 FTW, though thats a good price on both. You should be able to oc to 5870 perf easily, slightly better power consumption and DX11 performance, it's a no brainer.

    6870 dude, no question, firstly the 5870 is on OCUK :laugh:

    Second if you grab another 6870 later you get epic crossfire :D

    + a small overclock puts it on par with 5870 :laugh:

    Very sorry for calling you a troll, I confused TPU with GN (where I call all activities in TPU trolling as I never do anything constructive here as demonstrated above :eek:). Meant no insult.

    As for my education, I will be working for my government whatever job they see fit to give me, for 10 whole years, whether I like it or not. No bonus and low wage increase. Similar to paying off the education in UK, but as for me, I am chained to 10 years of servitude to my country (which is not that bad seeing that I will have a job waiting for me, no matter how shit it is) whereas in UK you can have a choice. I if my government decide to be a dick, they can get me to sweep the roads and I will have to do that. Heard stories about a guy graduated first class engineering from Cambridge who was working as a mechanic to mantain government vehicles during his 10 year bond.

    Edit: People have said that I am socially inept, and this perfectly demonstrates the case, perfectly fine conversation which turned into me insulting you. Very sorry about that again. I do appreciate if people tell me off when I step out of my line, and please do whenever I do step out of my line.

    Hey look no problem whatsoever, tbh I got called a troll yesterday and I think I was still a bit pissed off about that when you mentioned it, though I get what you mean now following this.

    And I have been lurking(trolling?? ;) ) around TPU all morning now, I think I better get my arse into gear tbf :laugh: :toast:

    Friends now? I would look very stupid having to close this thread or at the very least start deleting posts..... nothing (within reason) should be "off topic" in here, we should be able to discuss anything going around within the confines of the general forum rules, however it only takes one to be offended and one is enough for me to have to take action..... let's hope it never gets to that.

    The tall standing TPU members... HEH HEH HEH!

    Yeah, I've been hovering over the order button on the Novatech 6870 for days, I should really buy it before I don't have the money. Or I could wait until the 6950/70 launch.

    :p

    Is this 5870 one of their B-grades? If so, I'd definitely go for the 6870. I'm with you on the Overcklockers/Novatech comparison.

    I've been shafted a couple of times by Overclockers, but always received excellent service from Novatech.

    However, I think the best option is to wait for the new AMD high end, as this will cause prices to come down and you'll be able to get 5870 performance for less.

    EDIT: Just saw your second post on this after I posted - and now I definitely think you should wait! :)

    Yeah, I'm going to wait. Last time I didn't I ended up buying my a 4870 and then the 4890s came out for less money.

    :(

    Learning from my mistake better not back fire this time though.

    Tell me about it, last year I as going to buy a 2GB Vapor-X 4870/4890. Glad I didn't now.

    In (about) June I bought a Raven 2 for £110 and now it's at over £140 :D
    Bought 4GB OCZ Reaper C7 for £140 and watched it go straight down to £85 :mad:
    And I feel stupid buying so many WDC Black's when I should have gone with the Spinpoint F3's :mad:
    But hey, we shall learn

    Oh yes, excellent idea. Get rid of all the other members, leaving just me and then I get all the freebies. :D :rockout:

    Found that old logo; the more I look at it, the more it looks, well, unfinished.

    It could be finished by adding the rest of Ireland in there. (yes, yes, I know Ireland isn't technically in the UK, but if their rugby teams can play nicely together ...)

    I should really shut my mouth, because I can't create graphics or logos or anything for shit, so I shouldn't really be one to criticize or advise.

    Sometimes; it's the "outsiders-looking-in" that bring a different taste to the table ;)
    Unfortunately, the project save file is on the wife's rig (the one that keeps killing monitors) so all I can do at the mo is change background colour

    Hey mate no offence but can you at least use the correct spelling term and not silly wording that isn't required like "idear" there is no "r" in idea.

    Thanks
