Default Need upgrading info/help

Hello there!

Need help with choosing the correct thing to buy ^^.

I currently have a motherboard which supports 478 sockets for Intel Pentium 4/Celeron processors (Model: ASUS P4P800 SE and supports hyper-threading (if this helps)), NVIDIA GeForce 5700LE, Intel Pentium 4 CPU with 2.6GHz, and 2 GB of RAM (can't even play Half-Life 2 Episode One on full res n graphics with no lag ='().

What should I get if it were for a gaming and plan to play games that have high requirements (games like Quake 4 at 1280x1024 res at 'Ultra Graphics' mode XD)? Price range $400-$700 totalled (possible?).

Should I get a sli motherboard with two other graphics card with a new CPU or even a motherboard with the new intel dual core and a good graphics card? Need exact models and details on what to get please, cauz I'm a PC noob =D. thanks, help appreciated.
