I want to avoid replacing the mobo if possible because I'm a bit of a noob at replacing mobos ( meaning I have never replaced a mobo) and I'm afraid I'll mess something up.

well not technically.

I mean sure a better processor, but you can keep the ram, keep the HD, or buy the caviar as you suggested, and you can keep you GFX and buy a brandy new PCI express one when you have more money.

Mine as well bite the bullet

Wow! Trotter that is pretty nice for just $822!

I'll be sending these parts to my brother who's going to build a new computer soon.

Well, it doesn't include Windows, and you could drop down to a 3000+ or a Sempron (but the price difference isn't that big). You could also go with an older video card.
