Well I would say your CPU is fine as there are not many good upgrades for that motherboard and the CPU is still good. You can overclock it if you like to get a little added performance. RAM is good unless you have a 64bit OS then you can add more if you like. But I have the same set up but with 32bit OS and it only detects 3.5GB of that anyways. I would upgrade the GPU as that is easy enough to do, get the latest if you like to high performance game. An HDD upgrade is simple enough I have 4TB of HDD space in that same mobo. I don't know much about the PSU but I would look at power requirements of the new GPU you plan to buy and maybe upgrade it accordingly.

I would definitely not buy a new one yet as that still has a couple years left in it with a couple upgrades.

Ur current psu is not big enough for a 4850, it requires Atleast 450w. Get a 5770 and a 500w corsair and you'll be set.

Got a budget?
Screen resolution?
what games do u play?
