Default Future upgrade...

Thinking about a future upgrade...
this is my current setup: Amd 64 X2 4600+, XFX 7900GS 256/256, OCZ Platinum XTC PC2-6400 800Mhz, Seagate 320GB SATA II, Asus M2N-E, Creative SB Audigy...and that's all.
I was planning on another 500GB hdd (this is certain western digital or seagate ..I will see that later).
Now I don't know if the mobo should stay. I could get the :

Amd Athlon 64 X2 6400+ Dual Core Processor Socket AM2 3.2GHZ 2X1MB 90NM Unlocked Retail Box *No Hsf* for 186cad let's say..

Will it work ok on the M2N-E?..
Another thought regarding the mobo and cpu, I saw that the E6750 is something like 175Cad. That cpu plus let's say
Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L for another 80-90bucks. Will I see a bigger difference that with the amd cpu? (for 80-90 bucks approx)
P.S. I don't do overclocking. just so you know

As for the video card I thought a 3870 would be fine the 512Mb one..and plus another 2x1gb kit (ocz platinum, same kit..)
These are my plans I'll see if anything new comes up. Please tell me what you think
Oh and, all these will be put in a Silverstone TJ04 that I already own..and the lcd thingy is an Acer 19" AL1916 (that will stay)..

Memento mori
