best graphics card for £120(max)

so basically i am building a new pc soon and i need a new graphics card and i was interested in the HIS Radeon HD 7850 1GB £124.98.

But I was wondering what the very best graphics card is for this price as this is only 1gb, and may not be as good as it seems

no preference over AMD/Nvidia

it will be used for light gaming and hopefully will be able to run games at playable fps (even on lowest settings) in 2 or so years

  1. unless you're using a multiple monitor setup at very high resolution a 1gb card is more then enough for a single high resolution monitor. and if you can get a 7850 for that cheap, hop on it, the new 7790's cost more and perform less so take that deal lol.

    i saw a 6870 2gb and a 6870 1gb for the same price what would you say?
  3. take the 7850, about the same performance and lower power cost, which in the long run saves you money per year on your electric bill :p and it's less taxing on your psu.
