hey Peps.

i got a mini itx gaming build that i have to make a graphics opgrade as cheap as possible,
(Possible used). i have the following specs:

ZOTAC H61-ITX WiFi - Bundkort - mini ITX - LGA1155 Socket
DDR3-1333 8GB Corsair/CL9/KIT
Intel Core i5 2500K 3.3 GHz(not oced yet as my new case havent arived with better cooling)
gtx 260 192cores stock
OCZ PSU 600W ModXStream Pro
WD HD AV-GP/500GB SATA III 7200rpm
Corsair Hydro Series H40 High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler
Id like a graphics card (that is available in Denmark, Europe) for around 137 British pounds or 215 us dollars.

most bang for the buck but note that it would be nice if its cool and quiet. id rather get a little less preformance and then a little bit cool pc.

so what would you recomend.

you name it, I game it :)

6870 or 560ti would be the logical choice as they are 2 great performer and cost about 180-200$ USD...

teh question is. im right now looking at the 7770 the 6870 and the 6950.

how much of an preformance increase would you think id get?

besides a cooler quieter case and dx11?

6870 is twice as fast than the 7770 and the 6950 is a little bit faster than the 6870 but you need a deal on the 6950 to worth the difference of price with the 6870...
