System specs

Proc: AMD 2000+ XP
MB: Asus AS7S333
Expansions: 5 PCI
1 AGP 4x
GFX Card: Geforce 2 64 Mb Ram.

I think that should be the main stuff you need to know, if not let me know.

Graphics card. It's doable but you saw how your framerate in UT2K3 was. If you can afford it snatch a Radeon 9700 PRO. If not, get a GeForce 4 Ti or Radeon 9500 PRO.

Also, how much memory do you have?

My harddrive is a joke, that really needs an upgrade.

As for RAM, 256 ddr, not sure what brand off the top of my head I will have to open up the case and look to be sure. But I think it is corsair 2700

In that case, in this order:

If the hard drive is under 20GB, that first.

Then memory, 512 total system RAM at least.

Then a new graphics card of some kind.

Cool, thanks for the advice.

You can get a 512MB stick of DDR ram from Crucial for only $100. Then I would suggest a GeForce4 Ti 4600.

In my opinion, the RAM needs a definite upgrade first. You'll still be able to run PS with that video card.

Long term upgrade should be a new mobo. I recommend getting the Asus A7n8x board myself. You know what kind of product Asus makes. Or, if you're an Overclocker, get the Epox 8RDA+ board. I've got one of those and have yet to start OCing it. But it really is a nice board with tweaks and stuff built right into it.
