Hello fellow South African! LOL

What graphics card are you using?

I am assuming that you want to play games better?

To be honest that setup will struggle to run most modern games. The graphics card will be fine, but i recommend getting a more powerful CPU and at minimum 4gig of DDR3 RAM.

Hi there, another South African here...:) 

I suggest getting a new mobo, cpu, ram.

http://www.sybaritic.co.za/store/product_info.php?cPath...
R1362
http://www.sybaritic.co.za/store/product_info.php?cPath...
R940
http://www.sybaritic.co.za/store/product_info.php?cPath...
R561

Total: R2863
That Core i3 will provide a good upgrade for your c2d, I think you will see a nice jump in overall performance.

Oh, btw, I have used Sybaritic before and their service has been good, delivery time was as they promised.

I'd upgrade the CPU, MB and RAM as well:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

These items would fall under your budget.

This setup is the same as a recent build. Excellent performance and future-proof. This new Vishera quad-core will outperform Intel dollar for dollar, especially with a good MB/Chipset as listed.

Good luck!
