With recent price cuts CPU's are actually very cheap, however you may be forced to get a new motherboad then get DDR2 RAM, it's not the processor thats expensive but the things that follow it that need to be upgraded.
If you have vista home premium 2gigs of RAM is strongly recommended, but since you wouldn't be able to recycle your RAM to your new build later down the road it world be burning your money.
At this current point in time I recommend you disable a few things such as Aero, windows side bar and a few other things that suck up your system resources, if you have norton I recommend download AVG as an alternative as every little bit helps.
GHz means a fair bit but not everything when it comes to processors.
Before anyone lists power supplies, expecially the high end, you need to look at the PSU as it's the determining factor on whether or not the GPU will run. So can you please if possible give me a link to your PSU, otherwise a picture of the sticker (on the back of the PSU) listing the A on the rails as well as the total watts would help us determine this.
