Default Starting Fresh, Need help

I am fed up with my system. Its not bad but Its about that time for a fresh upgrade. I have the money (within reason of course)
But I have been out of the game for a while as far as whats good and whats worth the money, so I need your help, Im just gonna order it all from newegg.
I have currently
2.53 P4
DB965PERL intel MB
1GB Kingston 2100 HyperX
80GB WD 8MB Cache
160GB seagate (used for storage)
DVD burner/Cd burner and a dvd rom (dont need new ones)
PNY 6800GT AGP 8x

Ok. So you can see my system is middle of the road.
I am happy with my case, powersupply,and optical drives
the rest has to go. Please tell me what to go order, and I have a open budget but am not looking for a $500 video card, or a P4 xtreme edition or FX series AMD for $500-$800.
I just ordered
74GB raptor HD.
Just need a Processor/MB/RAM/VID CARD
I was looking into the Athlon 64 X2 3800+, but is it to early to invest in the whole dual core thing?

BTW: All i do on my PC is play BF2 and EQ2, and high end games.
