Really, you need to spend at least £100 to get a good gaming card... That 6670 you linked will be a damp flannel.
Based on what you've already got, you'll need to think bigger, else you'll just be wasting your money for the little improvement you'd get.
To stick to your budget, you could go for this Radeon 6770.
That'll offer you decent mid-range performance for not a lot of money. It's also got a decent cooler on it, so you can over clock it a little and get a bit more bang for your buck.

I'll give you one good tip, stay away from Maplin. I find their stuff expensive and old. You'll find upto date stuff here for less.
I always look this good in the morning, what's your excuse?

if you want a cheap but good graphic card i would suggest the 6770. I have the older model of the card which is the 5770 and it runs great. And then i added a second one so now i have 2 5770 graphic cards and i can run any game with high to very high settings at 1600 X 900 resolution
