Default Computer Upgrade - 15 Feb 2008

Given the current system specs I have, I'm considering a reasonable PC upgrade. Assuming Yorkfield procs work on an EVGA 680i board, and in addition to an extra 120mm fan for the front of my case, these are my options;

-Q9300 (and some Arctic Silver)
-A second 8800GT
-2GB of RAM and Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit for the second drive.

Which would you people suggest?
