Okay, so for what it is worth, I am going to grab a fx3600m (8800m GTX) and run with that instead of the platform upgrade, for now. Might go for something better for the CPU/chipset later, but right now I don't think the upgrades from it will help at this point in time.

More research would have been in order. Got the card and installed. That all went fine, with a single support strut that needed to be removed to clear the slightly larger card. But Also I was going on Notebook check specs that says 96 cores for the 8800m GTX/FX3600m , but this one has 64 cores. Proof:

There is an issue with it though, which would figure. The LCD does not work on it at all. Just full screen colours (black, red, green, blue, then repeat), but it will show through DVI and VGA just fine. But it will do fine for now, just another desktop. Tried replacing the VGA/Inverter cable also, did not help at all. Guess it will be a HTPC until I can get something figured out.
