Depends what type of games you want to play. I think that mobo is socket A an upgrade from that and your CPU would be most logical. And certainly a new graphics card.

I think any less than the 3700+ and the 6800GS isnt worth the money for the upgrade of what hes already got

Everyone has a budget he could get a 6600GT or 6800GT a 3200+ venice or even a sempron 64 2800+ maybe less. He might not be able to play the latest games on full settings but he`ll get by, not all of us can afford the latest technology.

Well he hasn't given us a budget so how am I supposed to know how much he wants to spend?
