2GB of ram can help for sure in some games (Battlefield 2 for one) and would probably help overall performance. I would get another gig of ram and a 7800GT (or GTX if you want) then you will be set for some great gaming.

2gb of RAM would certainly benefit very high-end games like Quake4. If you can afford it, go for it.

Yeah, but certainly get that new video card first, it is what's holding back your system at the moment.

All cards are standard sizes. No matter what country you buy it in, it will fit, assuming you have the correct expansion slots available. (AGP, PCI-E, etc.)

Take a look at www.ebuyer.co.uk, they have some pretty good deals.

Man you got an amazing monitor, with a good graphics card, you can have a fantastic time playing most of the games on high settings and get decent fps as well. Go for a 7800 man!

Yea that system will run most games that are out today. But you should upgrade the graphics card dual 6800GT SLI.
