OK, so in Group Policy Management console, right click the policy select Edit.
You are now in the Policy Editor, right click the name of the policy and select properties?

I've created a group policy to replace another one, so want it to override the orginal.  If i link it to the OU i have the option change the link order.

To have this GPO take precedence over other GPOs linked at the same level, in the GPMC, select the OU that the GPO is linked to.

On the right hand pane, move your GPO to the top of the link order (no.1). Settings in this GPO will override conflicting settings in GPOs linked *to this OU*.

On top of that, GPO precedence is Local, Site, Domain, OU (i.e. OU takes highest priority, and local the lowest).
