I would say to at least upgrade your gpu for a gtx460 1Gb or ATI HD 5850, which are 40-45% faster than the gtx260, are these aren't too expensive, nice upgrade imo. But the rest, I prefer to let more experienced people answer you.

You should be able to fit in a either a HD6850, HD6870 or a GTX460 but your processor could be a potential bottleneck for these cards and your PSU is of unknown origins.

I am wondering if that PSU is really 480W true power but you've used a GTX260 on it that requires 2x6pin PCIE power then I guess it is possible to upgrade to the GC that I mentioned above.
