Hey guys! Sorry, not sure what category this would come under.
I'm looking to upgrade my pc a bit. Lets get to the main point, i don't have much cash. My budget will be about £150 ($230).
The processor itself is fine for me. Its an Intel Core 2 Quad Extreme Q9300 2.50ghz with a stock cooler.
The motherboard is an Asus P5K (not deluxe or wifi or anything). The Intel is an LGA775 and the max RAM specs are 8GB DDR2 1066mhz (max 2gb per slot) with dual channel support for the 4 slots. (By which i mean it can support 2 dual channel confgurations)
Right now i have 2 Corsair XMS2 1gb 800mhz sticks installed. But 2gb is no where near enough for me, i'm quite a big gamer.
The graphics card is a Palit ATI Radeon HD4650 1GB DDR2.
I'm hoping to upgrade the RAM, graphics card and cooler.

Any thoughts on what i should get? Also i don't really want to upgade the motherboard or cpu even though the motherboard doesn't support DDR3.
Thanks guys.

I should also mention the mobo supports SLI.
And also that i have 2 graphics cads i could sell (The HD4650 and an NVidia 8400GS 512mb) for around about £60 ($90) and a Pentium 4 HT 3.06ghz i could sell for about £30-40 ($45-60)
