    Definitely agree with the above - go with the GTX 460 - I've got one in my rig and game at the same resolution as you'll have there and it handles most of what I throw at it (Skyrim with most things at max, BF3 on high etc...)

    Buy a 560ti that you had listed and pay the extra £40 you will regret it long term if you don't

    Really going just a little over budget for the massively more power of the GTX 460 or 560 Ti will be an acceptable over budgeting.
