In some games the dual to quad would get you more then increased speeds of RAM. Depends if its threaded for that and going up in speed might get you some performance like maybe 1-2fps.

OK on to CPU? Well mostly at super high resolutions Quad does help on some not on others. I mean above 1900x1200. And further we are talking best case 5-7 FPS at best. Not exactly great improvement? And that is not on your system as I am talking higher resolution than you have.
Your GPU does seem to be the very best component. I suspect CPU could be the next upgrade. But short of benchmarks doubt you could tell.
I could look for the high resolution Duo vs Quad benchmarks but not easy to find. I hope you just trust me?
If I have not said clearly enough? DDR2 to DDR3 with looser timings gains you nothing.
Your system looks fine to me. That said your next upgrade is CPU. Then RAM then HDD.
But please buy a Sound card before anything else.
Your system is balanced nothing needs to be done.
3 FPS does nothing when avg is 60, heck even 35 means little.
