You didn't specify your GPU. You specified an archieteture for the GTX 4-- and GTX 5-- series. Could be a 480 for all I know. Also, post the name of your PSU. The model name. Who made it. and a link if possible

At your budget 6950's or 6970's in CF would do nicely (or SLI 570), as long as your mobo can support it and your PSU is a quality 750w, so you need to specify that.

Im actually changing my mobo because it only supports DDR2

You CPU only supports DDR2, so I don't think you can just upgrade the mobo and stick DDR3 in. You would have to throw a CPU upgrade in there as well.

Also, that spec sheet doesn't specify which 750w PSU that is, but unfortunately that is typical of pre-built PCs.

Worst (or maybe best :p ) case scenario is upgrading CPU, GPU, RAM, mobo, and PSU...so basically an entirely new system.
