without understanding your requirement properly i cannot recommend what cards you upgrade but to benefit from the full switching fabric on the 720, you might be better off upgrading your supervisor 2 to at least sup 720-3B and your line cards to WS-X6748-GE-TX (CEF720 full fabric card), WS-X6816-GBIC as well.


You're better off speaking to your cisco account manager...
