ive got a pretty terrible system atm and im starting to slowly upgrade it now, the main thing letting me down is the graphics card so thats what im upgrading first. im planning on doing it in this order, graphics card > motherboard + processor + ram > cpu cooler > then little things like better disc drives and an SSD, i currently have a Sapphire HD 5450 which is pretty much useless for anything other than minecraft, im looking to spent around £90 but dont mind going upto £110 if its really worth it ive been looking at an AMD radeon HD 7770 but was just looking for some expert advice

GTX750TI. Problem solved.

That's the only thing you really can buy, either that or the R7 265. Both are competent for the price.

I would get the GTX 750 Ti along with a good 300-450 watt PSU.

Here's a list:

Just so you know, the Corsair Builder (CX) series of PSU's is known to have poor-quality capacitors. In other words, if it is a 500 watt PSU, it won't last long in a system that uses about 500 watts. Your system only uses about 300 watts, so you should be okay. If you find money under the couch, you will probably want to get a better PSU, though, LOL!

It's not too bad. I know of one that's lasted a couple years powering an i5 and a gtx660 (CX500M). It is still a good idea to invest in a PSU like a seasonic or antec power supply.
