    Totally depends on your needs dude... are you a gamer, video/audiophile, web developer, casual web surfer? If you are a gamer, consider upgrading your video card and memory.. get a 6600 GT or an X800 Pro (what Inno3d card are you using, is that an FX 5200? pls throw it out now.. ), and 1 GB of memory, DDR memory. If your mobo doesn't support DDR, then upgrade your mobo as well, might as well go for A64..

    If you're not a gamer and is simply considering a career in MS Word and Excel, then my advice is: don't upgrade.

    50k should do it..

    Go for an AMD system! Disclaimer: these are just price estimates.

    AMD Athlon 64 3200+ Venice (2 GHZ) hmmm, around P11,000
    any good nforce4 motherboard w/o SLI (MSI, DFI, epox, etc.) = P 8k-9k
    2x512 MB DDR400 memory = P 6,000
    6600 GT 128 MB PCI-E = P 9,500+
    new PSU around 400W+ (enermax, hec, task, antec, etc., no generic ones) = P 3,500
    +new case? you can probably keep the one you currently have... pero sige everything must go... a cheap one can go for P 1,500-2k

    new HD? that would be optional, depending on your needs, you can go SATA for 120 GB = P 5k+

    Total = roughly P 45k
