    Kep the 4870 till 4th Quarter this year, then get a nVidia 300 or one of the new ATi RV870s...

    Well, Keep the video card and water cooling probably isnt the best idea cos it might stuff up and ruin your entire computer. All your money would be down the drain. Your video card is fine, however is you wish to upgrade it, get a GTX295, Deluxe 700(500W) (takes up 3 slots), or a HD4870 X2(280W). The HD4870 X2 has some cooling issues as it is multi GPU, But you can overcome that with a fan on the side of the case, and maybe one of those fans that go in the slots.
