Old/New wat to do????

Hi guys
I currently have a system
AMD Athlon64 3500+ 939pin Venice core
Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe mobo
Kingston 1.5 GB DDR400(orginally 512MB * 4)-(sold one)
Zebronics ATX cabinet and 450W SMPS

I had a 6600GT which I sold
(I can buy this back if I need by giving him back $70)
I have a Budget of $220
to upgrade the system.

My current mobo lost one of its memory slot lock so I sold my 512MB DDR
(which can be bought back by giving back $18) if that problem can be sold.

My main use of the PC is
Playin DirectX 8,9 Games,
playin Divix movies,MP3s.
etc.

Wat should I do?

Upgrade mobo,CPU,RAM+low end card/my card

or buy just a new GPU for $150-$200.

Or if u have a better suggestion please reply.

  1. I am in a similar situation. I am just going to save save save. Then build all new when Nehalem comes out.
  2. g31 MB - $40
    e2180- $70
    2GB DDR2-800 - $35
    8800GS - $100

    I'm estimating on some of the prices. Good enough?
  3. I'm from India so the 8800GS the 2GB ram cost 150% of ur price.
    So its out of my budget.

    Thanx 4 suggesting the mobo though cause if I'm to upgrade the mobo
    I'v now got a good one to go buy.
  4. Guys will buying all new mobo+processor+ram+8500GT/8600GT
    give me better perfomance for my applications?
    Than putting a new 8600GTS/9600GT on my current system?
