To me, this is what I'd do.
Buy a new CPU: A P4 2.4GHZ
Buy a new GPU: A 6600GT (If you have AGP)
Buy some RAM: 1GB DDR333
Do you know your motherboard model?
I have to agree with lhuser, the chipset, fsb and socket are the major factors here, with the information supplied by the original poster, all replies are conjecture at this stage.
With respect to lhuser, and hopefully to the benefit of the OP, the board will be 800mhz fsb and able to take a GS series AGP card, if in fact it is a 533 fsb board there will be a bottle neck problem with any 7xxx series card
@ OP .......... More info would be of assistance
