A dual core X2 would be the only great improvement for now, but I would reccommend waiting for the next gen of CPUs and GPUs until you upgrade. You have enough to play any current game comfortably so just hold out until the next wave of Conroe and whatever AMD comes out with and the D3D10 GPUs.

Uprade your graphics card and OC your CPU (get a new HS/Fan fo it and better memory).

i really don't think there is much to upgrade it should be fine. perhaps overclock the cpu and get a 7900gt but the 6800gs is quite adequate still.
