Hello! Sorry for it being in UK money. I'll make this brief. I've been using AMD cards for too long so I would like an Nvidia, preferably a 970. Intel i5 processor or above ideally with 3.5 Ghz.

I'm not picky about anything else. So long as it all works and the case isn't tiny then I'm happy. I have little need for aesthetics but I won't say no if it's coincidentally looks ok.

I should be able to acquire one. Also just to ask is the 970 a good card? Cause I've been looking it up for hours and it seems good but I'm such a newby I'm not 100% certain.

Yeah the gtx 970 is a great card. I have one myself so I can personally tell you that it pretty much runs any game at 1080p 60fps. Although if I could redo my computer build I would go with the r9 390 instead. It performs better and is more future proof.

How much does that cost in comparison to the Geforce 970?

You can get the Powercolor 390 for 240. Powercolor is a pretty good brand so I would go with that one. There's also the xfx dissipation one.
