Hey guys could you give me help to decide which to upgrade on my pc?

Here are my specs:

Athlon 64 3800 Socket AM2

ASROCK AM2NF6G-VSTA Motherboard

Corsair KIT Value Select 2gig (2x1gig) 667mhz ddr2

PALIT 7900GS 512meg PCI-E

Western Digital 250 gig SATA 2 KS 16meg Cache


Im deciding if I should upgrade my video card or my cpu;
and if I upgrade my video card should I buy another 7900GS or save up for an 8800.

The site/s I'm currently looking to buy from are:
www.gamedude.com.au
www.surpass.com.au

Feel free to change sites but the shop must be in Brisbane.
Or very good reputation.

In the short term, I would upgrade your processor to a dual core. The low to mid end Athlon X2s are very reasonably priced right now. Then, I would save up my money and wait a while for an 8800GTS. They're a little pricey right now, but within the next couple of months the price will most likely drop significantly. I wouldn't waste my money on another 7900GS because eventually you'll want the DX10 support.

Unfortunately, I'm in the U.S., so I don't know any stores in AU.

For sure upgrade the CPU, unless you have to buy a GPU, I don't recommend buying a graphics card till the fall.
