Well, my only question is what is better the AMD Radeon HD 6850 or AMD Radeon HD 5770?

Through my research I found that these two are very good with coping with the new games AND at a pric range of under £120.

Unless there is something better with a low price, which one should I buy?

6850 is better by a good margin and the best for its price the 6870 is better and stil under £120 see http://www.aria.co.uk/SuperSpecials/Other+products/MSI+... you may find one cheaper if you shop around.

The 6850 will perform noticeably better then a 5770 for gaming. Especially at higher resolutions due to an increased memory bandwidth (6850-256bit, 5770-128bit). It also will draw less power, generate less heat and run more quietly. A 6870 is also a good choice to look into for slightly improved performance and more overclocking headroom.

What is the rest of your system?
