whoa now, I just checked out the 1gb version of GTX 460 and there is a deal and it's for Now £138.95inc. vat and it's only about £15 difference to 768mb version, so I guess 1gb would be better?

Well, if you want the better PSU, I'd go for the cheapest option.

Unless you game at over 1600x900p, the 1/4 more Vram shouldn't matter much ..
But it's your call.

To be perfectly honest, hold back on the GPU and PSU purchase for now

The GT240 should do fine, and have no risk in blowing your PSU and possibly your new mobo and cpu. Just wait until you can get both, and then take your opportunity.

The problem with my GT 240 is that it gets to well over 90°C, while playing games like WoW.
And yes, I have cleaned it thoroughly

Maybe you are right, thanks for the suggestion, I will consider that, but keeping in mind that in future I want to buy a screen with higher resolution

Probably down to overall case airflow, unless of course you have overclocked it.

I've used a 6788 before, and if you want a few more reviews on airflow look up "Rosewill Challenger Review", because it's the same case

Just get an extra 120mm fan for it, and you should be golden for now.
