You should be able to upgrade to 16Gb of ram.

Look into the Radeon 4870. I use it in my Mac Pro but it's the revision after your but I've read that it works But look into it.

I think you should consider buying 3 SATA drives, but them into your computer and do a software raid 0. It will be very fast and really help with the performance. Just remember to NOT keep project or originals on it as it has a higher risk of crashing.

If you get a video card that can output to a HD monitor most if not all of the HD cards from AJA and Black Magic will downconvert the signal to SD.
