I agree with adding 2 more GB or RAM to improve performance. But a GeForce 9800GT would, at best, be equivalent to your 6600. If the 9800 had more graphics memory than your 6600 then it would be a downgrade. Two GeForce 9800GTs would be a considerable downgrade and would obviate any benefit that 4th GB of RAM might provide.

You do not want to use any more graphics memory than you absolutely need when building a photo workstation. There is nothing on a GeForce 9800GT that would provide an advantage over your GeForce 6600 for photo work. Photo work does not require 3D graphics processing or fast refresh, and it needs very little graphics memory.
