You'd do best to buy the parts you'd need to make your current setup a C2D (CPU, mobo). Drop in a 8800GTX, and you're set. Then turn around and sell the stuff you just swapped out (CPU, mobo, video card).

Having the latest and greatest hardware doesn't mean squat if it isn't setup right.

Blowing another $3K on your current build would be... how can I put this...NOT SMART. I'm die hard AMD, but Intel is the clear winner for now.
