If we can keep your current hard drive and RAM, we could have a really nice looking system here.
Here's what I'm looking at so far:

EDIT: Forgot to add, how do I tell is my harddrive is IDE? I read something on yahoo answers about the cables, I have these small red ones that are about the size of my thumb that go in it.

I couldn't find the video card/motherboard on tigerdirect or newegg but wondering if I should get a video card with 1g instead of 512 since i only have 2gigs of ram in the computer

For the video card, just grab whatever is the cheaper card, for a build of this budget it wouldn't make a difference how much video RAM the card has.

also wouldn't it be better for me to get geforce/nvidia cards so that i can use my current card with the new one?
And how do i buy the deactivated items on newegg?
Sorry for all the questions but your help is appreciated

If you want to run SLI then I would need to re-do the motherboard setup, don't worry about running two video cards with this budget.
If the items are deactivated on Newegg, see if you can find it elsewhere in stock. Otherwise let me know what you can't get and I'll find you an alternative.

However the jump in price tells me it's not worth it. I can't even find the original 4850, the cheapest one is around the $120 mark now as pricing has changed a bit.
