Graphics memory and system memory are seperate and have no bearing on each other. I have DDR2 RAM and GDDR5 on my graphics card.

That power supply is fine for a GTX260 SLI setup.

A quad core CPU generally uses more power than a dual.

If you have a 64 bit OS then yes I would upgrade to 4GB for sure. Even if you have a 32bit OS 4GB will be better even though only 3.25GB will be used.
