I now have a 2.1G dual core with 4 gig ram and ATI 2400 with 250meg memory driving a 24" HD Gateway monitor. Would upgrading to a ATI 4850 1 Gig card make a huge difference playing games like Empire Earth/Total War, Battlecraft, Civilization, Company of Heroes or would I be better off swapping out the processor?

Yes it will the 2400 is not considered a gaming card but the HD4850 is a upper mid range gaming card just make sure your power supply can handle the upgrade.

Thanks! That was the way I was intending to go. I have a 64 bit processor running 32 bit Vista, but going to windows 7 or vista 64 bit won't make a big difference playing games.

All vista or 7 does for you is enable using DX 10 and 11. Currently there are no games out that do not run on DX9.
