I have been looking to upgrade my old computer so I can play the latest games without many problems. I don't mind lowering the graphics settings to play, but with the newest games, I can't play them without my computer dragging down a lot.

I am planning on upgrading both my processor and graphics card eventually, but I only have enough money to do one upgrade right now.
I have an Intel Pentium Dual Core 3.20GHz processor and a Nvidia Geforce 6600 graphics card.

which one should I upgrade first, and what are some inexpensive options for their upgrades?

Honestly I recommend saving until you can upgrade everything. Otherwise you'll not see a difference TBH.

I agree. If you got a new graphics card, the processor would still be the bottleneck and vice versa.

New computer time.
