New Graphics card advice on a budget

I have always used a nvidia geforce gt 640 in my desktop since i got it, its always ran the games i needed it to without a problem. However i am planning to get Mirror's edge catalyst when it comes out and i fear that the 640 just wont be able to run it. With that in mind i'm thinking of buying a new gpu basically solely for this game and as such i will paste the minimum and recommended gpu settings below. Any advice or suggestions on a new gpu would be appreciated but please bear in mind price is a big factor for me so somewhere closer to the minimum requirements would probably be better although i do want to be able to run it smoothly without it looking awful.

Minimum: NVIDIA GeForce® GTX 650 Ti 2GB or better / AMD Radeon™ R9 270x or better

Recommended: NVIDIA GeForce® GTX 970 4GB or better / AMD Radeon™ R9 280x 3GB or better

Which cpu and how much ram do you have? these play an important part in how well the game runs

The 650 ti is a four year old card,and theres not many sellers on the internet,may be better to purchase the gtx 750 ti under for about £100

I have an amd 6 core 4ghz (can't remember the name of the top of my head) and 16 GB of ram

Amd 6350? 6cores 4ghz That's on the minimum specs list on the link ive posted for you to take a look at

16gb ram is fine

Yeah I know the CPU and ram is okay but I think the GPU won't be able to keep up

Definitely not id go for the 750 Ti about £100 thats as good as you'll get for a budget card,its faster overall than the 650ti and draws less wattage from the psu,have you a good psu 450w plus? Thats another thing you may need to consider

500w psu

And I'm willing to go a bit higher around £150 mark if it means it will play smoothly without looking crap

Gtx 960 just on budget a big step up from the 750,psu ok as well
