Next Steps: 8800 GTS 512 upgrade

Hi - been a long time since a computer upgrade; I think I need a GPU upgrade first but I would appreciate any ideas.

Currently, I have:
- GPU: 8800 GTS 512
- CPU: Core 2 Quad Q6700
- other details: its a 775 lga chipset; 4gb memory

What should I upgrade my GPU to? Will it require a better CPU? Would overclocking to ~3.3-3.7ghz get me there? Do I need a whole new mobo for a better chip?

PS I assume that getting another 8800 for SLI is not the best approach. Thanks so much!

yea even upgrading gpu you would still only be able to play new games on low and probably still get low fps. You need a whole new system overhaul. 8800gts was good in its time but that time is passed as well as the q6700.

Funny. I think the mobo just died

That whole system just isnt going to be up to par for current generation stuff. Would be great for browsing and media stuff.
