well i was thinking of getting a new motherboard/cpu/ram/videocard.

now i know i dont have too much money but i found this that looks good.

AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ Windsor 2.6GHz 2 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM2 Processor

ASUS M2N-SLI Deluxe AM2

1GB DDR2 800MHz

ATI X1650Pro PCI-Express 512MB Video Card

Seems like it would be a good upgrade for me now, it fits the budge and would allow for future upgrades later.
