Default Lookin for an upgrade!

Well, I just graduated high school so I have a bit of cash on hand.

I have about $1000 CAD I can blow on computer parts... so I am not sure what to get.

Any suggestions?

Do I upgrade the motherboard and buy new ram or do I get a 9650 or 9550 (775)?

If I get a 285GTX will it run slower on this Mobo (original PCIe)?

Need new psu!

oh, and I will be buying from this store... http://www.memoryexpress.com/

Intel Q9550
BFG 285 GTX
PC Power and Cooling 750
1TB WD HD

Total: $1065 including taxes. $1005 after rebates.
