Default Help playing games with my Rig!

I recently made this rig by myself and have had it now for about a year and a bit.
I currently play quite of lot of games at the momment including:
Call of duty 1,2,4,5,6
Crysis
Medal of Airbourne
GTA
Fallout 3
Mirror's Edge e.t.c
Recently I have experienced "lag" or jumpy gameplay.
And was wondering if there was anything I could do to my current rig to improve gameplay...
ANY Ideas???
ANY Shopping links will also be handy.


THE RIG:

Operating System Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate
Internet Explorer 8.0.7600.16385
DirectX DirectX 10.0
Motherboard M2N68-VM
CPU Type DualCore AMD Athlon 64 X2, 2900 MHz (14.5 x 200) 5600+
Motherboard Chipset nVIDIA nForce 7xxx-6xx, AMD Hammer
System Memory 3072 MB (DDR2-667 DDR2 SDRAM)
Video Adapter NVIDIA GeForce 9400 GT (1024 MB)

Also not sure if any of this helps
Temperatures (Degrees C):
CPU Idle:54
Motherboard Idle 44
In game the motherboard increase by about 8/9 degrees however the cpu stays pretty much the same.

Well I'm only 16 and would like to spend under 100(hopefully) but if needed would save up for longer.
