I was thinking of AMD Phenom II X4 3.2GHz Quad and a HD Radeon 6790 or a GTX 550ti, which gpu should I get?
Also What PSU will I need to run these? I can only spend 350$.

Try to find out exactly your PSU so we could evaluate if you need to change it or not. (Try to check 12V rail combinated amperage)
Check the GPU exact version so we check if you're doing a parallel upgrade or not.
Check the CPU exact version.
Get rid of XP 32bit, go for windows 7 64bits.

What will be your main usage? Which games you going to play?

Is that dual core amd or intel?
Run cpu-z to identify your motherboard exactly to see what cpu's are compatible.
It will also tell you exactly what ram and gpu you have.

Lastly(should be first) what do you do with your PC and what do you wish to accomplish with an upgrade?
