Opinions and advice required please on a new card to go with new Fractal R4 case I also intend to buy. I have been using XFX 6870 1gb past few years and my current case is Lian Li PC7, noise issues are not too bad but need to be sure when i upgrade i at least maintain and hopefully reduce sound from card coupled with new case.
New card doesn't need to be the absolute latest and greatest but obviously a major step up in performance from 6870 to last me a couple of more years as long as noise isn't an issue, can someone suggest best options for card with budget around £200 $310 taking performance/noise into consideration.
Thanks

Welcome to SPCR.

What's your screen resolution? For 1080p, I'd suggest the GTX 760. ~$250-270, 30-50% faster than the 6870. MSI's cards seem to be the quietest this time around.

I second ca_steve suggstion, MSI Gaming N760 TF 2GD5/OC GeForce GTX 760 £222.99, if its like in the US i would just preorder/backorder it and wait it ship, at that price seems very good option price/preformance.
