    Well, I'm planning to purchase a new GPU to go with my new PC build that would be less than £100.
    It would have to run Crysis on low settings at least and should be fine with HD- does anyone have any recommendations for a GPU that would suit my requirements under £100?

    Also, in a few months I'm upgrading my CPU, RAM and motherboard and would like to know what the best hardware is for around £250.
    I'm thinking of an i5 and a mid-range motherboard with at least 10GB RAM.

    I currently have a laptop with first-gen i7, 6GB RAM, HD5870 and 128GB SSD which is starting to struggle with modern titles (apparently the i5 Ivybridge surpasses the first-gen i7s by around 3-4 times) and the GPU would also need to match or exceed the performance of the HD5870 (which is 700MHZ core and 1000MHZ memory, which today's GPUs outnumber greatly). A GeForce GTX 650 that I'm looking at has 1GHZ core and 1.3GHZ memory which does surpass the 5870.

    Recommendations?
