Cheers everyone!
Since I'm a gaming maniac, I'm playing all the free time. And my old, nasty 9600GT is not doing it's work well. What I'm looking is a GPU worth 200 pounds (300$). I'll provide my specs lower.

Buy a new power supply, then use the rest to buy a 7850 or 570.

Corsair or Seasonic. 650W should be enough, so like a TX650 or HX650. Or you can get higher, your choice.

If you would choose, what would you prefer?
I'm not specialist in GPU, so I want to make a good decision, so I won't regret it later.

I would get the 7850, only because it's newer, but they both offer basically the same performance.
