If you want to make an upgrade worth your money, I would strongly recommend getting a new motherboard, why dont you want to?

Whats your budget? You should upgrade to a dual core processor, and get a better graphics card.

Don't get the 640mb, because it's not that much better than the 320mb version.

What you could upgrade to...is an X2 or Opteron processor, if budget doesn't allow for the 8800GTS, then the x1950xt.

What is your power supply?

Your computer is horrible

I would upgrade the motherboard to this
Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-P35-S3L LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

And the CPU to
Newegg.com - Intel Core 2 Duo E6550 Conroe 2.33GHz 4M shared L2 Cache LGA 775 Processor - Retail

Or upgrade to Quad core CPU if you have more money
Newegg.com - Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Kentsfield 2.4GHz 2 x 4MB L2 Cache LGA 775 Processor - Retail

Get a new motherboard so you can fit the core2duo processors on. If you aren't looking to overclock you don't necessarily need to spend so much on a P35 DS3R. Look on newegg. There are a line of duo processors ranging from the affordable to the expensive. If you think you can shell out some more money you can invest in the q6600. For the graphics card you could look at the 8800gts 320MB, more affordable graphics card which is still good.
