Best value graphics card for ~£100

Hello experts!

I have started buying components for my new light gaming/ engineering 3D applications rig and the main components so far are:

AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition Six-core Processor - 3.20 GHz
ASUS M4A89GTD PRO - AMD 890GX - Socket AM3
Corsair CMX8GX3M2A1600C9 DDR3 XMS3 8GB

I was wondering what is the best value GPU available at the moment to complement my system, for £100 +/- 10%?

Also I was having trouble deciding which PSU to use, I am kind of stuck between:

OCZ 600W ModXStream Pro Power Supply:


Corsair CMPSU-600CX 600W:

Do you guys have experience on which would be better?

Thank yo very much :)

Whoa, they were £98 a month ago, Pixmania must've messed up their prices, heres one for OcUK for £99.

Wow this seems like great value! Is this a reputable website? I am a bit concerned as everywhere else the HD 5850 costs £150+?

Yes OcUK is a reputable site, I'm not sure why HD 5850's are shooting back up in price, but they could easily be found at the £100 mark a few months ago.
