Default Help me with my computer :|

OK im thinking of either getting a new graphics card, or upgrading my computer.
At first i needed the graphic so i could play battlefield 2, i was thinking of a 6600 geforce Gt, since my computer doesnt have pci express.
But, maybe instead i should buy a new cabinet, then one im using now is small, a new motherboard, sine my own is very small too (only place for 2 ramblocks)

Im currently using geforce 5200, 1024 kingston ram, 3.0 Sempron etc.
So maybe i should upgrade it, so i dont have to do that in the future, and upgrade it
so i can use graphic cards with pciexpress too....

If you could give me some advice on if i should upgrade completely (graphics, cabinet, motherboard, few RAM), or only the graphic card would be nice.
I you think i should do the complete, please also include some hardware options you think i should go for, good and with a fine price.
I dont want to pay too much,,
id say my limit is about 500 dollars.

Thanks a lot!

Get the 6600GT first. But if you are wanting a new case get it first. Then get the gfx card. Dont worry about RAM. I have 1 gig and BF2 runs great and it looks great.
