wait a while and you'll probably be able to get a 5850 for around £150-£170

No i havent oced the cpu, and have no plan to do so. I understand waiting about for prices to go down makes sense, but then on the other hand i dont want a beast of a card, just want something for a reasonable price, that will run Aion and Cod MW 2 maxed at 1680 by 1050, thats quite and not likely to overheat.
