Talking Need help looking for a setup to improve gaming performance.

I have no idea how to look for the parts to improve gaming to the max, so I'm hoping you guys could help me.

I'm using:

Windows Vista Home Premium
3070MB RAM
DirectX10
NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT 1523 MB
1440 X 900 (32 bit) (60 Hz) Monitor
AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5000+

I'm looking for a new processor, video card, and power supply between a budget of 300-400 dollars.

This is my MOBO: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/d...roduct=3686674

-I'm looking for a setup that can run games on max settings. Specifically Mortal Online with their Unreal Engine, and Warhammer Online to handle hundreds of players on the screen at a time.

The problem with keeping that mobo is that the bios is locked. If you think you may want to overclock or just have more control over the system, you should look into a new one. There are some pretty nice ones out there for around $50-$75.

This is a nice one- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128376
