Opinion on graphics card

I'm looking to upgrade my PC. I have been doing little bits over time and feel now its only lacking in RAM and my 9500GT graphics card.

I've now got an extra 2GB DDR2 RAM ordered and ready so my attention turns to the graphics. This is an area i have no real knowledge in so i was hoping someone my have an opinion.

I've got about £100 to spend and when i said that they immediatley said This Card an XFX HD 4870.

My worries are for that card:

I've got a Coolermaster Real power modular 520W PSU which had the required 6Pin graphics pci-e cables but has it got enough power to run this card and a Quad core 6600 Intel processor?

Also apparently its fairly hot? Anyone shed any light on that?

Thanks :)
