Windows 7: need some expert advice on how to spend my money

The 6950 TwinFrozer III is a great card. Before you buy anything off of ebay, make sure they are a certified vendor for MSI, otherwise the warranty may not stand up.

And, to answer this best, the motherboard is the backbone for any build. My best advice is to first figure out if the case your current PC is in will be worth hanging on to. If it supports an ATX MoBo and has decent air flow, I would buy a MoBo like this Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

You can't use that MoBo unless you are hiding a socket 2011 processor in your back pocket.
