Howdy!
After much research on nVidia/AMD/ASUS website I'm still at a loss as to if i can upgrade.
I have an ASUS M2N32 SLi deluxe mobo, nvidia 7900gtx and amd x2 4200.
Was looking at getting amd x2 6400 and nvidia 640mb(?) 8800gts but i'm worried that my mobo won't accept the graphics card unless i get DDR3 memory which im not sure that my mobo will take.
Any advice/obvious advice/slaps in the face for being silly would be much appreciated! :D

the graphics card will use ddr3 and the cpu ddr2, standard set up, shouldnt have any problems.

says it supports X26400 since bios revision 1201

It will take any pci-express card, (or two in SLi). The 320mb versions of the 8800 cards are particularly good bang per buck; looking at gaming benchmarks I'd find it difficult to justify the extra money for the more expensive versions.

Cool! thanks for the help! Just wasn't sure if the mobo would accept anything related to DDR3 or not.
