seeing as your stuck on an AM2 board it would be better to upgrade your entire system.

May be a good idea to start afresh, that's what I'd do, anyway.

I'd upgrade the GPU, first and foremost. Take a look at a 7850 or a 7870, both should be adequate.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sapphire-11199-16-20G-Graphics-... this should do perfectly well, will be a bit bottlenecked by your system till you upgrade but wil be a large upgrade over what you have.
