    Replacing my GPU

    Hello, so my current card i got in December has turned out faulty, i made a thread about it a few days ago -
    http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...een-goes-black (if anyone wants to check it out)

    I have called up amazon and they have none in stock so they are giving me a full refund of £182 so i now have the option of picking a new card, what are your suggestions?

    Current Specs

    CPU - i5 3570
    MoBo - Z77A-GD55
    RAM - 8GB
    HDD - 500GB
    Monitor - 1920x1080
    faulty GPU card - Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 2GB

    Now im not really wanting to get another card made my sapphire, their customer service is absolutely terrible!
    i have around £200 max to spend on a card, what would you suggest is the best one i could get ?

    The EVGA card uses the reference cooler which is known for making a lot of noise. The clock speed difference between the two 660 cards is 13MHz, hardly noticeable.
