    Nice motherboard man - Asus is first-class. I would upgrade your video card if I were you. The 9200se is a bit underpowered. As far as what to spend, well that just depends on how much is in your budget. Also upgrade your memory - 512 is pretty good but the newer games are wanting more and more memory.

    Definitly a video card upgrade. Any of the following card would be a nice boost : 5700 Ultra, 9600xt, 5900-xt, 9800 Pro (256-bit).

    I would upgrade ur video card tbh! I have a 9600xt and they pretty good for the price but personally i think that the 9800pro is the best value for money card out there atm :)

    dont spend money on a 256mb card..go with a Nvidia 5900Xt....badass card and stays cool..at least with me it does...plays 256bit graphics too

    If you are a gamer, definitely get a new videocard, depending on your budget I would go with a GeForce 6600 GT or superior.
