Default What to buy?

Basically I'm getting my old PC back off my sister, it's specs at the moment are: Intel E5220 @ 2.56Ghz, 2GB DDR2-800 and Nvidia 8600GT. All I need it for is basic word processing, FIFA 12 and BF3. I reckon I'll chuck an extra 2GBs RAM in but really am stuck as to which GPU to buy, looking to spend £100 tops inc. both the RAM and GPU, preferbly from Cheap Laptops, Computers and Cheap LCD TVs | Ebuyer.com

Suggestions greatly appreciated!

Cheers.

For £100 this is about the best that you can do.
Memory - £20
Crucial 2GB DDR2 800MHz/PC2-6400 Memory Non-ECC.. | Ebuyer.com

Video Card - £80
Sapphire HD 6770 1GB GDDR5 DVI VGA HDMI PCI-E Graphics.. | Ebuyer.com


What are the rest of your specs?
case, motherboard, power supply?

Case is about 6 years old, just a ATX case with a window that I got when I was 14. Mobo is a Asus P5Q-L off the top of my head..
