Given the situation of the OP, I'd grab a 64-bit CPU (I like AMD, but it doesn't matter), a decent mobo for the CPU that definitely supports 4 or more gigs of RAM max, a GPU a touch higher performance than you think you need now, and 4 gigs of RAM (3 for now, one more to grow on and for dual channel, not that dual channel makes much difference at all). I'd seriously consider getting a new power supply (don't skimp on getting clean power) and maybe even a new case, too.
BAM! Done upgrading for a while.
