What is the brand and model (not just wattage) of your PSU? A HD7750 is the strongest card you can get that does not require an auxiliary power connection.
In order of performance:
HD6850 >= HD7770 > HD6770 > HD7750 > HD6670. Especially at this performance level, you do not need a card with more than 1GB of GDDR5 VRAM on it; never mind what marketing droids may utter.

So looking at the reviews getting 50 to 60 frames in 1920 resolution is real good for a $150 card on newegg

Hmmm, never heard of them. As long as it isn't outright junk, and is not so badly overrated that it can't provide at least 22A-23A on +12V, it should handle a HD7770 just fine.

I would say get whatever HD6000 series or HD7000 series gets the best benchmarks for the price range.

The HD7000 is newer, but the advantages in a slightly superior architecture may not translate into a better value at that price range.

It's possible that an HD6850 or similar is a better value but I haven't checked prices in UK funds.

At any rate, just compare benchmarks. I'm not sure if OpenCL would benefit him or not, but check those too just in case. My research indicates OpenCL is not yet a big deal. For example Adobe CS6 only had one plugin which supported it but say they will have more for CS7 and CS8 in several years should heavily support it but by then a new computer or card would be used.

Go buy a graphics card, 6850 would be the first choice and if it is not possible then 7770.

7790 is closer to a medium level :D

The GTX770 is way over the OP's stated budget!
If you are willing to consider nVidia, the GTX650Ti (even the non-Boost) is stronger than the HD7770, and may be within your budget.

Given that the OP's PSU is of uncertain quality, I'd choose the HD7770 over the HD6850. It is so close in performance as makes little difference, but uses a lot less power to provide it.
