I agree with dang, the man. Add another gb of ram for better speeds yet. You may b able to get a decent quad core/mobo, or simply replace your current 1 with a quad.

There's a quad at Tiger Direct 4 a decent price. How about a phenom II x4 940 black edition 4 $127 + the government's share, which is still less than $150. If you like 2 oc, it's a black edition!

After replacing your cpu, and adding more ram, consider moving up 2 a higher res.monitor as suggested by another member.

After that, you'll be able 2 make better use of your gpu as well.

U mentioned the psu wasn't a problem, 4 a decent gpu a 500w is recommended as minimum, and with those upgrades a good 650w would allow 4 a more powerful gpu down the road.

There are a lot of guys who could help u, and trolling the BST can save even more $ 4 the same, if not better, components.

Good luck and let us know what u decide, out of curiosity.
