What should I upgrade?

I put this thing together about 3 years ago and I definitely didn't optimize it. I'm looking to upgrade again to get the most efficiency out of this rig, so can someone give me any suggestions as to what to upgrade?

I am a light gamer and use my computer mainly for playing games at 1280 X 1024, but I want them to look and feel beautiful.

More about what upgrade
  1. How much are you looking to spend? You could benefit from a CPU upgrade, but then you would need to upgrade your mob and ram to get the most out of the upgrade.
  2. I'm not willing to jump to DDR3 yet =\ Plus, the new processors just aren't fast enough for me to want to spend $200 on one yet.
  3. If you aren't willing to upgrade the CPU/Mobo, the only thing you can do is add more RAM (4GB in 2x2GB) and upgrade the GPU.
  4. Add more ram and get a new GPU like the 5770 so you can play DX 11 games.

    I am just not to the new generation =\
  6. Adding more RAM is the most important thing to be done, add the RAM to 4GB.
    HD4850 can actually still serve you well of course without DX11 support, you can postpone the upgrade untill the HD6xxx are already in the market.
