What I want to do is improve performance for programs such as Zbrush and 3d Coat.
So I thought I would upgrade my GPU and my harddrive.
These are the items I am considering upgrading to.
GTX295 1.7GB (on each GPU so it's really half) or GTX275 1.7GB (single board so it's all 'real')
SDD G.Skill Falcon 128GB <-- for OS install and swap file
Do you identify any bottlenecks here? Also, I'm not sure whether a sculpting program will see benefits from a multi-GPU such as GTX295, and I'm also not sure how much a sculpting program can actually use the 2GB memory on the GTX275 I have listed. What do you suggest I do to upgrade. Can an I7 processor work on the same mother board as my Q6600?

i7 requires socket 1366. Q6600 requires socket 775. You need a new motherboard and memory for i7.
Your computer is fine. I would suggest overclcoking the processor.
