Just wondering what graphics card would be recommended for this around £100.

Is the old corsair VX 450W ATX PSU (CMPSU-450XUK) going to cut it?

Thanks

For that budget, I would recommend the Radeon HD6850 or nVidia GTX460 http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-card-review,3107-3.html.  If you can go a little higher or find one on sale, the HD6870 is worth it.  You should definitely consider a more powerful PSU with these video cards; something with 600 watts (AMD recommends at least 500 watts).

Cheers, should have said I wanted to buy whole lot from there to save postage.

Could you recommend a card on overclockers and justify it?
