I have an asus essentio m11aa and would like some opinions on a good, compatible graphics card, which would suitable for games such as Skyrim or Call of Duty for example.

Depending on your power supply (PSU), monitor resolution, and your budget, the range of cards will vary widely. Can you provide the nameplate specs of the PSU? Mainly the +12V specs.

My PSU power supply is 350W, monitor resolution is 1920 x 1080. Budget of up to £100 preferably but can go higher if necessary/ worth it.
+12V specs-
12V1 10A,
12V2 16A (18A 17sec)
240W MAX

If you feel an upgade for PSU would be a good idea, I'm open to any ideas. Thanks again.

At 1080p resolution, you will want a good card if you plan on playing at medium to max settings. Your PSU is your main limiting factor. And, since that and your budget is ~£100, this would be the best recommendation: http://www.ebuyer.com/621484-evga-gtx-750-superclocked-...
Tweak your budget a bit more, and this would be the better choice: http://www.ebuyer.com/616904-zotac-geforce-gtx-750-ti-2...
Neither one will require a 6 pin aux power connection for the card.
Anything more powerful will require a PSU upgrade and a bigger budget, I'm afraid.

But having just built an i3 Haswell machine with a GTX 750 Ti, I can vouch for the fact that it will game nicely at 1080p with reduced settings. I managed to play Crysis 3 (SP) @ 1080p using Sys Specs: Medium, Textures: High, AA: SMAA (1x). And if you are coming from integrated gfx, you will be amazed.
