I came up with these two, although I don't need to stick with either one I just need good performance that fits my budget

I bought myself a Gigabyte Nvidia GeForce GTX 670 2Gb from amazon for £310 3 months ago and I never looked back. Mine takes anything I throw at it on my 1920 x 1080 27" monitor, without breaking a sweat. Plus, it has three fans which keeps it nice and cool, (Don't think I've ever had it over 55 Degrees, and that's overclocked XD) and with the gigabyte OCing utility you can manually set what speed the fan should run at at what temperature.

Here's the link If you're interested:

Have always used Radeon Cards and they never let me down. currenty on a IceQ x 6950 (which is only about £150) can't even hear it.

There's a big promtion going on now for the new 7000 series. Check out Dabs.co.uk

Not sure about warranty length, but I'm pretty sure its about 3 years or so. You wouldn't need the warranty with an Nvidia card though. =P
