(Before i came here i talked to a few other people and on a single forum two people gave opposite advise. If you could clear things up for me that would be great.
The graphics card shown is the one i was first going to get. However i was told that for both price and performance the HD 4870 was better.
Graphics card - PowerColor HD 4850 PCS 1GB GDDR3 - £82.84 - http://www.ebuyer.com/product/173209 . which do you believe is better?)

Thanks for any help

I can give a little advice when it comes to the graphics card and it is some advice I got yesterday. The 4000 series of the card doesn't support Direct X11 while the 5000 series does that that should be taken into account for when Direct X11 is more widely used. This is what I'm getting as an example I know it's more expensive but I've been told it's nice and if you don't mind a few extra bucks, but I think yours is good as well just a step below what I'm getting I believe. http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814150462
