Looking to upgrade and have been recommended the GTX760.
I See it is 25cm long which may compromise 2 SATA data cables. Can I move to 2 more convenient unused Sata plugs If so what would I need to do ??

Yes it will fit. On the sata you can swap connectors or cables with 90° connectors. Card is a little powerful for your Computer if it still has a slow core 2 quad.

Many thanks rolli59 - I was advised on this at Maplins being a "noticeable" upgrade based on the hierarchy list - currently have GTS250 card.

Would you recommend an alternative for around the £250 mark ?

Not really, what you will see is called CPU bottleneck which does not hurt anything but the GTX760 would not run at its full potential. A smaller upgrade GTX660 or GTX650 Ti boost and the CPU has a better change of keeping up. Being a OEM computer I am presuming overclocking the CPU would be out of the question.
