Hello, and thank you for reading.
My graphics card has packed up and needs replacing. I was thinking about doing this anyway but now I don't have a choice. My budget is about £120. I am planning to upgrade a few other bits fairly soon so some general upgrade tips would be greatly appreciated. I'm not bothered about playing games on top specs and this rig ran Starcraft 2 and Diablo 3 fine for me this year.
Anyway here is what I have
Lian-Li PC-60B PLUS Aluminium Midi-Tower Case - Black (No PSU)
Asus P5K-E WiFi Intel P35 (Socket 775) PCI-Express DDR2 Motherboard
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 "Energy Efficient SLACR 95W Edition" 2.40GHz (1066FSB) - Retail
OCZ SLI-Ready Edition 2GB (2x1GB) PC2-8500C5 1066MHz Dual Channel (OCZ2N1066SR2GK)
Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Music UAA 7.1 Sound Card - OEM (PCI) (30SB077200000) Tagan PipeRock TG600-BZ 600w Modular BZ Series Power Supply Gigabyte GeForce 8800 GT OC 512MB GDDR3 HDTV/Dual DVI (PCI-Express) - Retail (GV-NX88T512HP) Samsung SH-S203P/BEBN 20x DVD±RW SATA Dual Layer Lightscribe ReWriter (Black) - OEM Samsung SpinPoint F1 750GB SATA-II 32MB Cache - OEM (HD753LJ)
Any advice would be greatly received

You should be able to get either a gtx650 Ti , or a radeon HD 7850 for around the £120 mark . You don't say what OS you are running , but a memory upgrade would certainly help . To really pep things up , you might also consider getting a smallish SSD as prices are now finally getting more reasonable .
