My current Rig is:
Motherboard:Biostar TA785GE 128M
Processer: AMD Athlon II x3 425 2.7GHZ (unlocked 4th core)
Memory :4GB
GPU: Radeon HD 5770

I use this to play games and work on. So far I am able to play any game that is released but figure that won't last forever. I built this PC about 2 years ago and plan on upgrading one part at a time and plan to spend about $100 to 200 on it. what do you think I should upgrade. Thanks for the answers ahead of time:)

Agree with assassin, buy a new gfx card. 4GB RAM is more than enough for current systems. You can go with this gfx card for a tad bit more than $200:
Radeon HD 6950:

Or if you cant go over $200, the HD 6870 works just as well:

With the extra money, you can buy another 4 GB of RAM and upgrade to 4GB, or save for another CPU

What's your PSU (make & model)?

I think you should look for a deal on a 6950 1GB. I've seen them for like $175 after rebate.
