u might want to check the temp sensor. The temp should increase quite much when gaming, and the 25C when running at 2.4Ghz sounds quite weird. (unless u have some awesome cooling)

And I'd definitely go for a Core 2 Duo cpu. Then something like a 7600GT and 2Gb of some good quality ram.

Yea. If you dont care about how good your computer looks, get a cheap cas for like 40 bucks, and ul already save some money which could go into a better processor.
