To give you some ideas:
4870 512mb ~ £175
GTX260 896mb ~ £200
GTX280 1gb ~ £280
9800GTX+ 512mb ~ £135
9800GX2 1gb ~ £320
4870X2 2gb ~ probably £300-£350??
I'd go with 4870 and get an RV800 after christmas XD
4870 is pretty good for overclocking. Pair it with a DuOrb cooler and jack it up to 825 for some fun. I bet that'd get you pretty darn close to a gtx 280 for a load cheaper.
