Sensible PC upgrade?

    My main gaming PC is getting a little long in the tooth, so I'm debating the economics of a mild upgrade vs a new build. I'm leaning towards an upgrade, but I would like the opinion of the EG PC hive-mind, as I don't really muck about with PCs that much.

    Currently I have a Q6600 CPU running at the stock 2.4ghz speed, on an Asus p5kc Mobo with a 512Meg ATI 4850 card. It powers a single 1608x1050 monitor.

    I was thinking of upgrading the GPU to a this Artic cooler and giving it a mild overclock.

    I'll be getting Diablo 3 and would like to get it nice and sparkly, and to also eke another 12-18 months out of the machine before I look at something new.

    Sensible, or not?
