I say upgrade the CPU because the Video Card you have now isn't all that bad, and the CPU you have is not up to par at all, I think you'll survive longer on the current video card than you would with the current CPU.

Thus I say buy a 6600gt.
First you say to get a new CPU then you say get a 6600GT?
Actually my vidcard is all that bad, The stock speed it came at was 325/277MHz Core/Mem. Those speeds aren't even close to what a 9800 is supposed to be. I think my card is defective. Like Nubius said "games are getting very GPU intensive not CPU intensive."
