    Sorry you want what? :p

    You want a 5870 but not a vapor x?
    Almost any will do, personally Asus though due to the warranty.

    I'd just get the cheapest as there all the same anyway.

    Whats wrong with your current? Can't you just RMA it for another?

    As an aside, have you heard of a wonderful thing called punctuation? Makes all of our lives simpler...

    Gets on my nerves when I see someone pointing out punctuation no need for it at all.

    Have you had a bad card mate ? the Vapour X cards are very good normally, I sent back a Powercolour 5870 PCS+ last week as it was dodgy kept crashing in 3d games, maybe send it back and try another one.

    well i orderded the 875/5000mhz one which is causing me no end of probs...the only thing is that its a overclocked card which i never knew so probably just get the normal vapor x 850/4800 as its the quietest and coolest card ive used ...maybe its faulty but i just want a stable card not a overclocked one.

    I originally ordered that card but annoyingly my card was taken to fill a order from another e-tailer which purchased all of there stock, really annoyed me as i wanted this card while it was cheap.

    This is the only reason i went for the PC PCS card for the cooling but that ended up being duff, this Asus is great but noisy as you would expect when the stock fan kicks in.

    yeah see this one is real quiet...ill miss that if i get another make...running the fan at 65% is when you start to hear anything, anyway ill see what james says if they find out its really is faulty and another one should run ok ill take it...but as i said i dont buy overclocked items as no need these days. lol probably end up picking other stuff up while im there as well.
