I recently came to a hard fact that my decent computer in 2007 needed a few upgrades.

MB:p5n32-Sli e Deluxe Asus
PS:Antec True Power Trio TP3-550 550W ATX12V SLI
RAM:2Gigs of DDR2-500 (according to crucial scan) or DDR2-800 according to new egg link about my MB
CPU:Intel Core Duo 2.13GHZ
OS: 32 bit XP SP3
VC: nVidia 9800 gt

I play games alot and my computer crashes quite frequently. I think the reason is because I need to up from 2.13 ghz to a 3+ cpu processor also I need to add more memory and while I'm at it I might as well up my OS to Windows 7 64bit.

I was wondering with my spec above can I upgrade my processor to:

CPU:Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 Wolfdale 3.16GHz 6MB L2 Cache LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor BX80570E8500

And can I add 8 gigs 2x4GB to my comp without any major issues?

Forgot to add--Can I up my OS to Windows 7 64 bit without any major drive update issues?
