Default Upgrade to an old game system

Heya peeps, my name is Gazz!

I am currently looking into upgrading my pc. Basicly a AM2 system with ATI 1950 pro. Since my budget is small this time around I am looking into upgrading into amd once again.

I was simply wondering wether to get a new cpu for am2, or replace the mobo and get a cheap mobo/cpu pair. I am thinking about the 4850/90 range for gaming.

Anyway, some more info,

Main operating system: Mandriva Linux 2010
Gaming OS : Windows 7 (keeping it nice and clean for optimal performance)
