I think you would see a significantly improved overall performance from a new mobo/CPU.

The 285GTX is a pretty beastly Gfx card, odds are for your build if you bottleneck at all, it will be processor based.

Adding another 285 GTX will provide VERY diminished returns per dollar spent.

If it was up to me, Mobo and CPU, and if you have the cash 4 GB of DDR3 1600ish RAM.

But CPU/mobo is a higher priority.
