you not gaming very much on a 8800 GT and AMD 64 x2 4200.

how much are you wanting to spend?

where are located in NZ?

you need to get a more modern CPU/MB that use DDR3 not DDR2 the CPU you have is AM2 and is way outdated. you need a AM3 CPU and MB.

motherboard/CPU/Cooler/RAM (only 1x 2GB DDR3 1333 enough to run XP, win7 or Vista you will need 2Gb more)
