Well if you are going to use a better CPU,you have to change your motherboard as well.

So if I have an AGP card what am i looking at cost wise am i just better to spend an extra 150-200 bucks and build a comp?...along with CPU and Motherboard of course. if I am going to be runing an AGP ATI Radeon 3650 what mother board should i get to run Aion or am i again better off buying an PCIex16? Card?

There was/is a deal on newegg where you get a microatx geforce 6100 mobo & amd regor 245 cpu for 60 bucks?

Toss in a 4850 (100-120) and boom. there ya have it.

NZXT Gamma cases were just on sale too.

Glad I got one :D

You might want to start a New Build thread (there's a sticky with the preferred format) that includes all the information we're likely to need (including budget and where you can shop) to help you create a decent machine.
No one would even consider AGP for a new machine, and just about any CPU you could buy today will be faster than what you have (and meet the multi-core requirement).

Yah - Looking at what you have, I'm inclined to advise you buy or build something new.
