    I don't know if you needed a monitor in the same budget. If you do, then you're going to be out of luck.

    You can go for a Radeon 7850 2GB version from MSI too, if you must stay under 450£. I think it should at least

    run Crysis 3 on medium.

    This build can easily run Crysis 3 on Very high and if you get a CPU cooler and overclock, close to ultra.
