You can upgrade lots of stuff, namely the motherboard, psu, cpu, sound card, video card and the ram.

Wait for June, we have socket M2, the G80 core, DX10 and Windows Vista! The PC you have now is more than enough to hold you over until then. You will regret it if you don't.

I agree with what BandwidthHogg said. If you get new hardware right now, it'll be outdated very soon. Just wait a few months and then upgrade.

on the flip side, that new hardware is going to be very expensive out of the door. New video cards usually land around $700. New processors are a around that same price. New operating systems are tripled in price to what I'm used to paying.
