Cpu: AMD PHENOM 8750 2.4GHZ TRIPLE-CORE
Motherboard: ASUS M4A785D-M PRO
Gpu: ASUS EAH4850/HTDI 512MB PCI-E
HDD: 2X SEAGATE BARRACUDA 7200.12 ST3250318AS 250GB SATA2 RAID0
Ram: 2X KINGSTON KHX6400D2/2G HYPERX DDR2 2GB PC6400 800MHZ GENESIS

How about a AMD Athlon II X4 640 Propus 3.0GHz and a GTX460?

The chip is around 100USD and the card is around 150USD

The two would be a nice upgrade over the 8750/4850

You won't be able to hybrid crossfire but this card will be faster regardless.
