    Hi
    I would honestly have to say: "The whole PC"..
    ... but if you were to post the name and model of your motherboard , i might be able to suggest some parts to , at least give your pc a boost ...

    on second thought .. definately think about a New PC..
    cheers :)

    Boykoc, if you read all the info in his post, his mobo is an MSI MS-6380.

    It all depends on the games you want to play, if its anything made within the last year or so then there is no way that your current pc will play them without lag if at all.

    The MSI MS-6380 only has an agpx4 graphics slot so almost no games will work with that very well.

    Have problems first

    But if you mean 64.0 mb video memory,upgrade this.
    Get at least a 256 or 512 8x video card,
    and 2 GB system ram,if your motherboard will accept it.
    Minimum of 1 GB.
    You don't describe your monitor enough to reply to that.
    But go LCD Flat Wide screen.
    Note : Read game requirements,before buying.
    Do you meet them ?

    As i said in my last post, the mobo only has an agp x4 slot. An agp x8 graphics card would be absolutely pointless.
