In that case, buy an Athlon XP 2500+ and an Epox 8RDA+ with a GB of ram. Get a decent case with a good Power Supply, and salvage anything left of your Dell. Do NOT try to use your dell case or it's power supply.

BTW any games that play decent on your current system will play great on the system I just suggested.... It is the current best bang for the buck. With all the computer developments going on right now it would be really dumb to blow alot of money on a single computer. (Alot = more than a grand)

Simply put, nothing out now will play Doom3 well, and the computer developments only weeks/months away will de-value current hardware in a big way.
