Well, you can upgrade to a Phenom II or a X2 7750 BE, maybe upgrade that GPU or Volt or Pencil Mod that HD 3850... or get another HD 3850 for CFX if you want..

Um...

Oh, that board would support a Phenom II. I didn't notice that.

You could get one, either that or the x2 7750. Phenom II is obviously more expensive; 7750 is 78 bucks, while the pII 920 is 185, 940 is 225 methinks.

Get a new PSU. I believe there is only one ultra on the good list and it's not that one. Also if that HDD is SATA then change the optical drive for a SATA unit as well.
