Default Upgrading my pc

I own a T6410 emachine with an added 512 ram stick i am looking foward to upgrading the following:

1. Add 2 gig ram (1 gig x2)

2. Add Geofroce 7900 gt ( tell me if getting a x1900xt is better)

3. A sexy LG monitor(Just looking at a viewsonic monitor makes me want to throw up) this is what the monitor looks like:

Now my question is do i need to add cooling devices and a better power supply plus can i upgrade my processor to a better one sicne buying a better 64 athlon is cheap.

You will definitly need a new PSU. I believe the PSU in that model is only a 300watt, if not it's no more than 350watt. I'd get atleast a 430watt.

You can upgrade your CPU if you want. Any Socket 939 chip should work.

Any recomanded cpu for under 200 dollars and will it be worth sicne the 3200+ is pretty fast on its own.

Yeah, but it costs more and it's not THAT much better.

EDIT: Wait a minute, the 7900GTX is better than the x1900xt...

Either one of these CPU's will perform great:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103562

This is what I'd recommend for a PSU:

And some RAM for the **** of it:
Good stuff - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231020

Good, but not as good stuff - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231039

Mate if you think that the LG monitor is good. You need ur head tested. Buy a Samsung 19 inch Syncmaster913N.
