Give us a better list of what hardware you have. And, like Roger said, let us know what it is that you want to do.

If you dont know what hardware you have, take a look at the guide at the top of the Hardware Troubleshooting Section.

Judging by the video card I will guess that it is at least partly for gaming. Also, how much money are you willing to spend on the upgrade?

I'd upgrade the CPU
you can go for a Pentium 4 3GHZ for $177 at newegg.com
or if you are a gamer:
Athlon 64 3000+ Venice $146
MSI K8N Neo2 $60
