I used this site for being able to save a whishlist:

You can play at your maximum resolution with that video card but you'll have to add later one more stick of RAM.

Can you reuse your HDD or the case?

maybe the case , the HDD is the problem so i cant use it anymore , also maybe another memory brand

If your RAM is DDR2 you can reuse that, you'll need an AM2+ mobo instead of AM3.

OK, get what's above. You can also sell your old parts and the monitor and get a new monitor.
