Default Components for gaming comp?

As soon as i sell my go karts i should have about $1000-$1250 au ($1250 = Roughly 990us) and what wondering what i could buy with it?

At the moment i have a cheap intel celleron and am looking to upgrade to a whole new syste, or as much of it as i can. I have bought a Nvidia Fx 5700 256mb graphics card which is recommended for WoW. I have been looking a 1Gb Corsair XMS ram (512x2) and a AMD Athlon 3800+ with a MSI Mobo (Forgot the name ... was something like Neo platinum 4?).

My current computer specs are:
Intel Celleron 1.7ghz
768 SD 133mhz Ram
ProsavageDDR Graphics Accelerator...

Any help would be appreciated

I would have gotten only a 3200+ or 3000+ and a better video card for a more balanced system...

I would sell that graphics card, and get atleast a 6600gt. The wincheser 3500 would be a better choice to save money for the gpu. Also get a different motherboard. Abit or dfi lan party are the ones you want.

Don't buy peformance ram and get something like the one posted right above me.

Also, 5700's are an old card and to have a well balanced system, a 6600GT would be much better
