I'm looking to a build a mid-high gaming rig for my first build at around £750. But not sure what to get for the GPU. I've been looking at the r9 270x, 280x and also the GTX 760, but I'm not sure which one to go with? Im looking to preferably spend <£200. As well as that, I plan to put the OS, a few programmes and possibly a couple of games onto an SSD, will this fit on a 125GB drive or should I spend the extra £40 on a 250GB?

My planned setup: PCU: AMD fx 8350 Mobo: Giabyte GA-970A GPU: ?? RAM: Kingston fury 2x8gb PSU: Corsair CX 600W Storage: Seagate 2TB 72000RPM Samsung 840 EVO 120/250GB SSD Case: Thermaltake Chaser A31 ATX Mid Tower

Thanks! MWalker

the 280x would be the best and 125gb would be enough but at the moment 256 gb ssd's are the best bang for the buck
