Ok. I built a computer about 1-2 years ago without knowing much about them.

Here is what I did:

Intel Core 2 CPU 6300 @ 1.86GHz (2 CPUs)
1 GB of RAM

NVIDIA GeForce 7900 GS (256 MB)
Creative Audigy LS Audio Processor

NVIDIA nForce 430/410 Serial ATA Controller (says this twice)
Standard Dual Channel PCI IDE Controller

Windows XP Service Pack 3

I dont know what other information I should put down but I can get it if needed...Just let me know.

I have been playing the new Call of Duty World at War and lately I will get 10 minutes into it before it begins to run poorly. My guess is that I need a better cooling setup?

I came into some money and I am ready to spend some on a PC upgrade!

My motherboard is SLI compatable. Should I get another video card and a good cooling setup? What does everybody recommend? I am afraid to try overclocking and wouldn't try without being sure my computer could handle it with its current cooling setup.

HOW CAN I UPGRADE MY PC?!?!?!? I know I can get more RAM but what else?

Getting better cooling would be the first step, because I know that if a computer starts to slow down after a few minutes of gaming, that usually means that the computer is getting hot. More memory would be a good upgrade too especially for COD: WaW. SLI would be a good investment for future games, but it is not mandatory, games should run fine with the card you are using.
