Why don't you buy another 5770?

I would go with the last memory kit.

Newegg.com - G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 12GB (3 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL8T-12GBRM

If your only gaming you don't need 12 gb of ram.

I agree with slaymate and would probably only get another 5770 at this time unless you use multiple monitors or have a 1920x1080 or above resolution.

If you do plan on getting a GTX480 you will not be able to SLI it with your current psu as this link shows peak power consumption is 851w: AnandTech - NVIDIA. For a GTX570 in SLI I would recommend atleast 800w.

I would go with one of these, the EVGA models with -AR in the part number have a Lifetime Warranty.

Newegg.com - EVGA SuperClocked 012-P3-1572-AR GeForce GTX 570 (Fermi) 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Newegg.com - EVGA 012-P3-1570-AR GeForce GTX 570 (Fermi) 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
