Hmm, now that looks like a decent budget build. If you can, rather try and get an AMD HD6950. On the resolution you're going to work and play, you will need a slight bit more GPU power just to be more future proof. HD6850 is a good card, don't get me wrong, but the HD6950 offers you a better price/performance ratio. If you go with a brand like Club3D/HIS/VTX3D/Powercolor you'd still be able to stick to your budget. A VTX3D HD6970 is the same price as the average HD6950. And yes, it is a decent brand. Just a suggestion. Happy building guy.
