There is another card a little more but I dont know what the difference is?

HIS HD 7850 IceQ 2048MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card (H785Q2G2M) **OcUK Exclusive** [H785Q2G2M]
£179.99 inc VAT

I will be using all upgrades as default and not overclocking.
Spending even less is always a bonus but sometimes you need to spent a little more to get the performance you are after so guys what do you think will this do the trick or is there better out there for the price and if so why is it better?

Thanks to anybody who takes time out to help.

well for graphics card, on the amd side I only buy from sapphire so far. and a few from msi, so I can't say anything about HIS although I've manage to hold a 6850 before XD but can't justify anything with it.
