  1. You haven't listed the motherboard model. We need that to tell you what your best option is.
  2. Best answer
    Looking at it being a lga 775 with a QUAD already there is not really any viable options without going modern and upgrade both board and CPU.
  3. Also, FYI, your GPU memory (VRAM) is not the same as your System memory (RAM).
    You can't combine them for any purpose, you only have 8GBs of ram.
