Question about Motherboards
Dependending on your budget for your upgrade project you can implement some or all of the following to upgrade your PC.
First thing I would do is to upgrade your Videocard to one of the new PCIe offerings. ATI would be your preffered vendor as your Onboard video is ATI and this will limit any possibilities of driver conflict.
Next I would upgrade the RAM in the system you currently have 1GB which is sufficient for MOST games currently on the market but there are games in developement that can put some extra ram to good use. Your current MAX for this board is 2Gb with a 1Gb module in each DIMM slot.
CPU you can check with Intel and see what other duocores are available that might improve your speed.
Get a pair of SATA WD digital raptor drive (Fastest you can find) and set them up in a RAID array and install your Operating system on it. this is going to allow your computer to access the data at twice the speed as a non RAIDed drive
then I would consider a high end Audio card (My preferred one is the creative Xfi)
Hope this helps,
