At that resolution a crazy video card upgrade wont really help that much. The processor should definitely be your focus. If you're that pressed for cash, then your first choice should be looking here on the forums for a Good quality used Heatsink/cooler thats in decent condition. Im sure if you can scrounge together 30-40 bucks it'll be enough for something decent. With that the temps will drop drastically on your current CPU, so you can overclock it more AND you'll be able to use the same cooler on whatever the next processor is (providing its compatible, socket-wise). How much money can you realistically put together to help your gaming experience?
