Exactly, you'd be fine if you could put a 6600GT or better in there. Even a 9800pro would be a huge improvement than whats in there.

Many companies make the 6600gt. Check this one out http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16814130220. I believe but i could be wrong that the 6800gt is an AGP and would work for your system if you wanted to wait and save up some more money.
Better sig coming soon.

Personally for a budget pc I'd get
AMD 3000 Skt. 939
MSI K8N Neo4-F
1 Gig PC400 (3200) Corsair Valueselect
Evga 6600GT

then whatever else, like harddrive, optical drives, etc
REMEMBER: Seriously wait to upgrade to something like this. Or, if you find yourself in a position where you think 'I'm going to buy this because it's cheaper' DON'T. You'll regret it later. Just be patient

Default yep

you have a pretty good setup but if you just get a better videocard in there you will be much better. The 9200 sucks a$$ man lol. Get a decent one like a 6600 or a 6600gt.
