    Replace that RAM with a 512MB stick of quality RAM. This Mushkin would be good, but this Corsair would be a bit better for overclocking. After that, start saving and eventually sell that FX5500 and replace it with a GeForce 6800.

    This is all assuming you're in the U.S.

    A couple things to note:
    That motherboard was a colossal waste of money, and the hard drive was a big waste of money. Better options could have been had for less money.

    Click on the links for the prices...

    And for God's sake, don't get a 9550 of any kind. Get a GeForce 6800 non-ultra non-GT. It's only about $270.
