Try Funan if SLS out of stock. I saw an MSI GTX670 PE and Palit GTX670 Jetstream lurking on the shelves of one of the Funan shops. I think it's at #04-32, if I didnt remember wrongly.

Dear gurus of the forum,
A few years ago, I bought the MSI 5770 Hawk under the advice of one of you and the card has been serving me very well these years. But as it becomes only satisfying minimum requirements, I sense that it may be time for me to upgrade the card. As such, which card should I upgrade to? My budget is + - 300.

Asus GTX 560 DC II 1GD5 @ 289
Asus GTX 560TI DC II TOP 1GD5 @ 339
MSI N560GTX-Ti 1GB DDR5 Twin Frozr II @ 325

The above recommended cards are of good cooling solutions and good for OC to reach higher benchmarks for better performance. Price are taken from FUWELL 18/08/2012 price list!

I'd suggest the Sapphire HD7870 after the GTX660ti is released. I'm pretty sure AMD would adjust the price for it to compete.

No your mobo doesn't support PCIE3.

PS: I dont know if the MSI National Day Special for the HD7950 is still available. If yes, that's a no brainer choice.
