Which graphics card should I Buy - (UK) £240 BUDGET

Hi

My build is:
i5-3570k
as rock z77 extreme4
hyper 212 evo
GeIL Enhance CORSA 8GB DDR3-1600
Antec 620W ATX12V / EPS12V
xigmatek asgard II
(with case fans and other paraphernalia to be bought)

I need help trying to choose which gpu to buy (this is my first build).

I am willing to purchase a gpu up to £240 as long as i can salvage some money back by selling games that come with it or if it offers free shipping:

    Go for either GTX 680 or 7970 out of those. It will be best bang for the buck.
