Hi,

BUDGET: £100 or less really, but value and longevity more important

USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: gaming, currently: xcom, FM2012, TF2, BF3, Race07, GTA4 (really struggle with this), in future: simcity, dishonoured, rome2 total war, arma3. etc that kind of thing, performance is far more important to me than graphics

OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS: i5 3450, 8gb ram, gigabyte z77 mobo D3H, 500gb HDD, 120gb SSD

Buy a GTX 650, it is good for your resolution but is a little more than £100. You may find a cheaper one.

GTX 650 will play all games in your Resolution on High in 30+ FPS (Mostly even better).
And if you want performance than lower your Graphic setting and you'll get a guaranteed high FPS range in every game.
