Default Upgrade time

Hey, going to upgrade my system, looking to get mobo, processor, new ram, gfx card, power supply, heatsink & fan.

For the processor E6600, doesnt seem worth the leap into anything more expensive for a smallish gain.

Mobo, Asus Striker Extreme Nvidia 680I SLI Socket 775.

Ram, 1024MB PC6400 DDR2 RAM DIMM 1.8V, Will Do for the moment.

PSU, Thermaltake W0105RB Toughpower 700Watt ATX Power Supply

HS, OCZ Tempest Cooler

Looking for suggestions for GFX Card, looking to spend about £150-£200($300-£400) Possibly Sapphire X1900 XT.

Any alternative suggestions would be mucha appreciated.
