limited upgrades

This christmas i think im going to upgrade my Mobo to something that has some good fast PCI-E 16x slots.

Right now im Running:

Mobo: an ASUS PC-132E Deluxe (i believe thats what it is)
Intel Pentium IV 3.2Ghz Processor with HT
Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS
2 Hard Drives with a SATA connection
ATI Radeon 9800 Pro 256MB 8X AGP
4x 512MB (2GB total) PC3200 DDR Dual Channel Memory.

I really want to just change over to a GOOD Abit/Asus motherboard and im looking at the Nvidea 7950 card, the one with 2 GPU's mounted on one board, as a sort of mini-SLI setup for cheap, its got pretty good reviews.

How feasible is it to switch over just the mobo and install the new card without running into a TON of issues? Any recommendations on motherboards that fit the bill?
