Hi! i just recently bought and constructed a PC and here is its specs:

Processor - Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 @2.93GHz (stock HSF, not OC-ed)
MoBo - Elite ECS G41T-M / 1333 FSB / PCI-E x16 / Dual Channel DDR2 800
GPU - Powercolor ATI Radeon HD 3650 GDDR2 512MB / 128-Bit / PCI-E
RAM - Kingston 2GB DDR2 800Mhz (x2 = 4GB)
HD - Seagate 320GB SATA @7200RPM
Display - AOC 19" @ 1440x900x32-Bit
OS - Windows 7 Ultimate 32 Bit (Genuine)

i don't know much about building PC's (because i work as a nurse), but please advise about my build and post any suggestions to further improve its performance, thanks! :)

Looks like a nice rig. One wonders, "If it is already built, why ask for advice?".
Except for long renders of Video codecs (transcoding) and effects, your build would handle almost anything else that I do. I would call it "a very thick client" , Like a supercharged ATOM/ION, on streoids. Shouldn't drag, at all, as long as you don't have extreme gaming or HD video expectations/aspirations.

when i play games, say CoD 4: MW2, Resident Evil 5, or any new games, when i turn on AA, my game lags, or say my Frames-per-second decreases, so i usually remove the AA settings... what can i do to solve that problem? do i need to buy a new GPU?

Others will have to answer that. Games are not high on my list. My big plan (only just lately) might be to get a PS2 (used) so I can play all those good ol' games for cheap (and still be running other stuff (music, etc.) on my computer) It's all running thru a mixer ... works.
