Hooo - Thats a tough call mate

5870's are in short supply the world round.

I'll be all honest - Your best bet is likely to find your favorite and trusted retailed and put yourself on a backorder list if they offer one.
I know many Canadian and USA retailers right now have nearly a month long backlog for some of the more popular cards - XFX I would argue is the #1 in demand.

Hopefully some of our other UK based folks have some suggestions for you

My advice? Run a single card for now. Prices will come down next year.

Yeah. I agree with SKYMTL. Finding one XFX is a pain in the ass. Finding 2 is like chasing rainbows for a pot of gold.
