Here's my setup:

CPU - Intel Core2Duo E6750 2.66 Ghz
MP - Gigabyte P35C-D23R
RAM - 4x1GB DDR2
VC - ATI Radeon HD 2900 XT

I'm looking to purchase one of the following:

1 - 2x2GB DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)

2 - 1x4GB DDR 3 133 (PC3 10666)

or

3 - ATI Radeon HD 5750 1 GB 128-bit DDR5

Any Suggestions?

Thanks

I'd personally get the gfx first.

the only way youd be able to run DDR3 is with a new mobo, and i wouldnt spend that kind of cash on a core series processor.
besides, you already have 4gb of ram.

a 5750 would be a considerable upgrade, however. and could also be used in any new rigs.

+1 for graphics card.. Also, try and get a 5770.. The price difference is not much.. Sapphire has a sweet 5770 vapor-x edition which you can give a look to..
