    Replacement GPU

    Hello everyone, I have just built a computer using the advice from everyone on this website the build is below.

    Sadly the GPU arrived bent so i returned it.
    Now Scan is out of stock and unknown ETA on new stock so my question is this should i just take a refund and try to find the ASUS EAH6950 DCII somewhere else or is there a replacement card instock at Scan that you would recommend. i would like not to spend any more money or minimal amounts

    Current screen info if needed is a Dell ST2220T 21.5" Rez 1920 x 1080 at 60 Hz

    Card returned

    If memory serves the Asus card is a triple slot cooler, making it a pita to X-fire later down the line.

    Thanks i'll have a look at it, I'm afarid i've uneducated in current technology when it comes to computers. The only reason went for the Asus 6950 was it was recommend here.

    Is this a good card?

    or is the sapphire one a better bet.

    The Gigabyte and MSI cars are meant to have a decent warranty but have risen in price.
