Unless you have to have W7, save the money and put that into a HD 6850 and overclock it. For the keyboard upgrade, again, it's preference and not performance.

Quad wouldn't be a bad upgrade. OC that to 4Ghz with a HD 6850 and you'll have 50fps on average if not higher.

Will the hd 6850 work with my nvidea galaxy 9800gt and does it take up 2 or 1 slot(only have room in my case for 1 more. also could you recomend a cheaper card as It would be better to save money(i'm ona tight buget)

No, he means for you to replace it. So you might be able to resell it for a little bit of money.

Considering this is Australia, it looks okay. I don't see how adding a GT 430 to a 9800GT will provide benefit though unless you fold - they won't SLI together.

You may be able to get a cheaper Windows 7 upgrade license rather than a full OEM license to upgrade from Vista; though going to 64 bit you will still have to do a clean install, it should work. (EDIT: I checked, it appears there's none available).

Well its hard to just call it off the bat, but a good way to see if it will is to compare your setup with someone who has a similar setup, and see about what they get.
