    If by a "bit extra" you mean £120 then sure.

    Woah, that's a beat of a card, the only thing I see bad about it it's is power consumption.

    Re: Reviews - PowerColor Radeon HD 7870 Myst

    Can someone clear this up, exactly what settings do they use? The highest quality or just what they think is high enough?

    It's there in the review:
    http://hexus.net/tech/reviews/graphi...0-myst/?page=2

    You can click on the links to see screenshots of the in game settings. Hexus haven't offered a rationale for why they chose those settings, but they wouldn't be alone as most review sites don't either.

    Its like they saw Nvidia with their 5 billion different forms of GTX660 and thought, 'hey if these guys can confuse everyone, why the hell dont we do it aswell!'
