This is my first thread on this site, I've been a regular reader of the forums and that has helped me solve a lot of my problems. Hoping this one also gets solved :) 

My system specs are:

Nvidia 9600 GT (512 MB)
AMD Phenom II 1100t (x6)
8 GB DDRIII Gskill Memory
Asus M5A88-V EVO Motherboard
Coolermaster CM 350+ PSU

I'm thinking on replacing my Graphics Card, what choice would be the best? GT 430, GTX 460, ATI HD 5670 or any other.
FYI, I'm a regular gamer with interest for games like, Civilization 5, COD Modern Warfare 3, Black Ops, Battlefield 3 etc on my 32" LCD with around 1600 or 1920 resolution.

Moreover, my system is built into a Glass Case, and it gets heated up pretty fast, my PC shuts down after around 20-30 minutes of gaming. So i'm also looking for a Water/Liquid cooling system which can keep my rig running :) 

My budget for both the items is Rs 14-16k, P.S. I'm from India

My preferences are not limited to just the given options, if you have a better option then i'm willing to consider it. Moreover how's GTX 550i ? and HD 6790 ?
