computer gaming rig suggestions??

I have intel 2.13 6400 series core 2 duo’s. Pretty old processor. I’m still on windows xp, I want to upgrade the OS and just get better performance...I'm consistently starting to have to run things on medium settings.

So I could do a few things

***Add another graphics card, problem is I need a power supply, and I’m still on 2 gigs of ram and windows xp. Possibly add more ram.
**Build a new rig.

I don’t really see any other option available.

Suggestions?

budget isn't really an issue... 2k for a new rig... but I'm more interested in seeing if upgrading or swapping out some parts can work out first.

I would ask here for best result

Edit: We need a budget before anything can be decided. Do you find the processor lacking? I would def double your RAM to 4gb if you dont have alot of money to work with. Upgrading to windows 7 is never a bad idea either imo.

A ram upgrade would be a good idea for sure. Patsrule was spot on though.
