    Hey guy's got 250 pound to spend on my computer this christmas current specs

    500w power supply
    Intel quad [email protected]
    gts 250 512mb
    4gb ram
    mb: http://www.foxconnchannel.com/produc...D=en-us0000419

    I noticed that my gts 250 is starting to get a little old and only seems to be able to play games on medium settings nowadays so i was thinking about purchasing the following:

    http://www.ebuyer.com/233740-coolerm...ow-rc-430-kwn1 (To fit my new card and looks nice imo) 40 pounds.

    Either:

    or

    http://www.ebuyer.com/124927-arctic-...2-arctic-700td

    and finally

    http://www.ebuyer.com/248745-powerco...6870-1gbd5-2dh


    I think the 6870 is the best option in regards to price/performance what do you guy's reckon is this a decent upgrade? I will be getting round to upgrading my crap motherboard/ram and my processor shortly.

    Also I was wondering will a 6870 be compatible with my motherboard?

    I was thinking getting a good cpu cooler and doing a average cpu overclock to gain some performance in the meanwhile.

    Any suggestions in regards to anything would be greatly appreciated.
