Exclamation need help with upgrading

ok, I'm new at all this computer stuff. recently i just bought a Alienware Aurora laptop. I had it all uprgaded on the factory site. i want to put in more memory and add better graphics cards. I have 2 slots for memory. I also want to upgrade the CPU. right now im looking to get this as the mother board to switch from DDR memory to DDR2

i want to try and get up to 4GB of memory for the laptop.
and im wondering which are the best graphics cards ? ATI radeons or SLI type video cards. if SLI which ones? i have dual cards in my laptop right now.
Dual 512MB NVidiaŽ GeForce Go 7900 GS - SLI Enabled .

can someone help me in the right direction with possible selection.

Default Re: need help with upgrading

For Upgrading Ram, There is a program you can use called cpu-z(google it) to figure out what type it is and how much RAM your laptop can take.

It is not possible to upgrade the video card on your laptop.
That mobo and processor combo is for a desktop.

| Intel Pentium D 820 2.80GHz(Smithfield) | EVGA 780i | EVGA GeForce 7600GT 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 |4GB Corsair 800 | WDCaviar 250GB | Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro(w/ arctic silver 5) | Ultra 500w X-Finity Power Supply w/ 120mm Fan | Antec P180B. | Windows Vista Home Premium | Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeMusic | Dell Ultrasharp 22" Flatscreen Monitor
