I say if you want to keep the RAM and CPU you have and be able to OC go for 2x 3870x2s. if you don't mind investing in some DDR3 and a hefty tagged mobo go for a 790 ultra SLI and 2 9800GX2s... Maybe I'd suggest a 780i but supposedly they still don't OC all the well for CPUss. at least u'd be able to keep ur RAM.
Basically I'm saying yeah, ur gonna need quad GPUs if you want to have playable frames and good looking graphics on todays top-endd stuff and the near future's everything else, lol. I got a 24" screen while i was on a single 7900GT, OMG was that mistake. I havea 7900GTX now and @ 1920x1080(42" HDTV
) and it still struggles alot in some older games @ that res w/ like 2x aa or jsut standard settings...
Max it out man! it'll soon be out dated no matter what you do, lol. todays high-end becomes tomorrows mid-end, so... yeah.
Good luck and I hope your pocket book doesn't cry for it's momma...
