Futureproofing is the act of trying to anticipate future developments and taking action to minimise possible negative consequences.
So if you futureproof your next build, you won't have to worry about being unable to upgrade in the future..
Well, the two questions you asked:
2.) Judging from your current specs, i'd pretty much say you'll need almost everything, if you're interested in playing newer games.
AMD 3200+ / MSI, DFI or ASUS 939 mobo / At least a 1Gig of value ram / Nvidia 6800GS / Antec 400w PSU / 250GiG seagate SATA HDD / may-be a new case... / Operating system
As far as you wanting to have a 939 mobo with both AGP and PCI-express support? I could see if you already had a decent AGP videocard and wanted to hold off on PCI-express for a while. PCI-express is the future. Your idea of having both support is silly, in your situation.
You said, "I know a lot about computers, but i really don't think you do." sorry...
