I have a Dell XPS Generation 5.

Pentium D 3.2 Ghz
Radeon X850 Platinum
2 160 GB Hardrives

Should I try to replace my motherboard and go SLi compatiable? I can play most games now on high settings just wondering if should save for new computer or upgrade this one. Do dells have upgradablitily issues might also be another possible sang. Any help is appreciated.

Although all the rich people will say SLI SLI SLI. I personally (especially with DX10 coming out) think you don't need to upgrade at all right now. Most Dell's have upgradability issues but I have a feeling the XPS won't considering it's pretty much made for gamers, but before upgrading, make sure 100% that it will work.

As of now, wait. Wait for DX10 and Vista and upgrade then. I think upgrading to SLI is a waste considering they make video cards that are powerful enough to run most games on highest settings.

SLi itself is an ineffective upgrade for a number of reasons.
