Hmm the HD 5850 is arguably the most bang for buck Full HD gaming class GPU these days and i dun think $$ is much an issue for you :p

If this is just gaming, you could change to an AMD build with an x4 955 or an 1156 build with an i5-750 for performance that is basically identical to the i7-930.
This would give you the money to upgrade to a 5850/470.
What is the budget?
Also, change to this set of ripjaws:
