ATI HD 6770 & Mobo asus p35?

Here are the specs of the current computer
OS: Vista64 Home Premium
Monitor: Samsung 226bw 22in LCD
CPU: E8400 not OC, thinking about doing +50% (FSB1333mhz)
MOBO: ASUS p35
GPU: HD Radeon 4850 512mb
RAM: 2x2gb 1000mhz DDR2 (for some reason, it's running at 400mhz :( 
PSU: OCZ GameXStream 700w
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 500gb 32mb cache NCQ
extra fans, coolermaster case
running 1680x1050 resolution

so basically, I am able to run the game on LOW, but it crashes a bit too much to my liking and I just can't compete in any ways in 1v1 firefight because I am way too laggy.

I am REALLLY outdated on what why and how computer works :(  :( 
Is it because of my GPU? I think I have ram issues too... I am thinking about overclocking my E8400 to 4ghz or 4.5ghz.
Now let's say I fix my RAM, OC that CPU and buy a new GPU; would I be good for a while? Is there even a GPU I can buy that would fit on that old mobo?

Any advice would be very appreciated... I have a very limited budget so I can't afford a new computer :(

What is your budget? Also what software are you using to view your ram speeds? If it is cpu-z you need to multiply that number.

DONT SPEND I A SINGLE MONEY ON THIS OLD PC UNDERSTAND

SAVE MONEY AND BUY IVY CORE I3

AND I THINK YOUR GPU WITH I3 WILL WORK BF3 IN MEDIUM SETTINGS

Spend 30 bucks for a cooler master hyper 212 evo, and spend the rest on a radeon 6770.

you are positive this will work on a p35 mobo? the PCI-e slots are good enough?

Should I X-fire the old card along with the new one, I guess this would be quite pointless because of the extra useless heat?

I don't remember what kindo CPU Heatsink/fan I bought when I built this computer, but I remember spending around 30$ back then for something that had a VERY good reputation, so I guess this should be fine right? Also have an extra 120mm case fan

tx a lot for the fast response!!

Your 4850 won't crossfire with a 6770.

I bought my computer in 2008 and the motherboard is an asus p35.
I am wondering if that GPU ATI HD 6770 would fit on that motherboard without being bottlenecked.
I want to be able to play Battlefield3!

Thanks

Get hd 6850 it runs battlefield 3 pretty smoothly. If your budget allows you upgrade your processor to a core 2 quad or core 2 xtreme. I think your motherboard's socket is LGA 775 right?Core2quad is the best processor supported by your motherboard. :D

yeah Socket LGA 775
but I don't really mind the slow loadings... as long as everything runs smoothly in game
I read a few good reviews regarding 6770 and battlefield 3 and it fits my budget quite well

    a dual core will be fine for single player for bf3, for multi player which have large no. of players, around 64 max, a quad core is really needed.
