I would go with conroe but you would have to get a new mobo too, and thats $$$. Maybe you can go AMD 939.

Do you have PCI-E 16x motherboard, if you do, get a better graphics card. If not I would get some more RAM. 2 GB.

1) Graphics card

2) 2 gig RAM

3) CPU (but you'd have to go AMD or C2D)

well see i have an AGP setup...
so i will have to buy a mobo and a gpu.

im kinda stuck..

*EDIT* is it wise to wait untill vista and the new g80s come out to make sure that i dont have to buy another mobo? Beacuse i dont upgrade very often

IMO, save your money up and get a new motherboard and c2d processor.
