I would go step by step, but I want my next build to be an AM3, which means new board, new ram, and new CPU. When I was thinking of that, I was like "Why not just sell my current one and build a new rig all together?".
Those 3 alone end up costing about $300 (more or less). I probably won't see much increase if I were to just upgrade those would I?

Alright, I will check out some benchmarks on that to see how many FPS increase I should get (estimate)
