Default Which to upgrade to?

Oh hello! So, Christmas is coming and the other half has told me to pick out a GFX card or Gaming mouse, or both if reasonable prices! Although, I've no idea where to even start with a new GFX! I've currently got an AMD Radeon HD5570 (Bought as ASUS 5570HD)[DxDiag Info at bottom].

So would anyone be able to tell me please, a good upgrade to this - preferably under £75 - I currently play FFXIV-ARR only, but would really want it to be able to run 90% of todays games. My PC itself is a AMDFX-8 3.4GHZ with 8Gb Ram so just held back by my GPU it seems.

Any feed back would be awesome, thanks!

You're not going to get very good for that low of an amount.

The best you can get is a Geforce 650 or AMD R7 250.
