I have a HP Pavilion a6000n, same spec with this link except that mine has 3GB memory and is Window Vista Home Premium 32-bit.
I am thinking to upgrade some of my computer's hardwares that can run smoother in some games, and to enhance my gaming experience.
I am looking to replace the processor and the graphic card. Right now, I have a AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4200+ 2.2 and a NVIDIA Geforce 6150SE nforce 430.
My price range is around $100-$200 for both processor and Graphic card together.
Will they make a big difference and improvement than what I have right now? If not, then can you guys give me some suggestions on choosing some better ones out there?

Thanks for the reply Kalt,
I just have 1 more question, I just looked at this Power Supply, will that be good enough to support better graphic cards such as the Geforce 8 to 9 series?
I just found out that my comp has a limited of 256 MB for the Video Graphics, and PCI Express 16. So I'll probably stick with the graphic card I linked, there probably aren't that many good graphic cards I can get out there for this limited spec, i think.

These are the motherboard specifications a6000n. Look carefully at the processor upgrade information.
Be sure that your PC is running the 5.13 bios level before you attempt a processor upgrade.
