    KFA is the European brand of Galaxy, so no. You might be able to find a similar Galaxy card in India though.

    no chance of another 3GB sport like the KFA 660 Ti?

    I really miss those HEXUS.bang4buck and HEXUS.bang4watt charts. Any chance in putting those back? More to the topic at hand, I think 200 pounds or thereabout isn't that bad of a price for a pretty good all-round performer like this one. I did, however, already upgrade my mid-range "do all serve all" rig so... not that little, but a lot too late. Nvidia should really try harder with their future mid-range releases and stop blaming TSMC for all the delays. AMD didn't and they got my money.

    Probably worth pointing out that the 7850 overclocks like a beauty, which makes it better value at the moment you'd have to reckon. Looks pretty good of course still.

    Hmm, might be worth upgrading from my gtx460. Nearly went down the 7870 route. Don't have the money these days for cards over £200 especially not after upgrading everything else last week!

    I've been massively disappointed with the top-end cards recently - hideously expensive and only marginal increases for each generation. But this feels like more of a return to form - a mid-range card, available under £200 (hopefully) that can outperform the previous generation's top card. That ticks all the boxes for me

    As for this particular implementation - the temps and sound levels are unbelieveable! Good card I reckon.

    Surely on the Overclocking page it'd make more sense to show the other cards when overclocked too?

    I agree, I thought they were very helpful.

    Too little too late from Nvidia - I've already gotten myself a 2gig 7850 for £160 last month after deciding the 660Ti was a complete rip off.

    Plenty of HD7870 cards are under £200. At least 25 when I checked yesterday!

    You're right, might get more out of the 7870
