    1GB AMD Radeon HD 6450 (Half H., 1DP & 1DVI-I) [add £117.00]
    1GB AMD Radeon HD 6450 (Half H., 1DP & 1DVI-I, no adapters) [add £105.00]
    Dual 512MB AMD Radeon HD 6350 (Half H., 2cards w/ DMS59 + cable for 2VGA each) [add £162.00]
    Dual 512MB AMD Radeon HD 6350 (Half H., 2cards w/ DMS59 + cable for 2DVI each) [add £168.00]
    Dual 1GB AMD Radeon HD 6450 (Half H., 2 cards w/ 1DP & 1DVI-I each) [add £223.00]
    Dual 1GB AMD Radeon HD 6450 (Half H., 2 cards w/ 1DP & 1DVI-I each, no adapters) [add £211.00]

    The GFX you mentioned - is that better than the above ?

    Yes it's the model up from the 6450. the options at the bottom of the list I think are talking about adding two of the cards and I am not sure exactly how that would work (if they would be independent or in crossfire.
