I normally build a pc every 2 years or so,but due to the prevailing economic climate and poor health these last few years,money is tight and was wondering if it is worth upgrading and if so with what. I am a gamer so graphics important. Thanks.

Processor upgrades will give limited performance boost at best and you've already maxxed out on RAM. So can only recommend either adding another 8800gt or buying two new cards (more recent) to go into your PC. Since you are a gamer this seems to be the most logical choice.
I have a broadly similar spec p/c as you and I keep looking (over the last 6 months) at upgrading all or part of the system.
Problem is that I can't really find any justification for it - in that even if I spent a grand (which I couldn't afford anyway) it will only give me a p/c with marginally (5% to 15% say) increased performance to what I have already.
