However, the only really noticable effect of this, is the 1gb memory, right?

in the next year? if you're gonna wait until next year you might as well strive for a dx10 card. and yeah if you upgrade to am2, you'll need ddr2 ram. but, i'd get conroe for processor/mobo instead, it's alot better than amds processors atm.

First of all, before you buy those two 7950 GX2's, what monitor are you buying? If you're not running multiple-monitors or a single 24" or larger widescreen LCD, don't bother. Save yourself some money and power by getting two 7900 GTX's instead. All you'll do is waste processing power and money.
