Hey guys i just bought a Asus radeon HD7850 DirectCU 2 2 GB model for $228 (australian) with shipping and should be here before christmas. Im thinking this is a great deal what are your opinions?

Another Australian! 

Well I can tell you now that you got a good deal. You can overclock the ASUS cards quite reasonably with its DirectCU2

Excellent thankyou for your input! this will be going in to my first gaming rig in a prodigy :D
