I'm using a rig that's 3 or 4 years old and trying to play newer games such as starcraft II beta and supreme commander II. In order to run either of these games I have to use the lowest settings and even then the loading time is excessive particularly in sup com 2. I'm trying to figure out what I want to upgrade first or if I need to do a multi-part upgrade. I don't have the $$ at the moment to build an entirely new system.

My specs -
2 GB RAM
4200+ x2 AMD processor 939
Nvidia 7800 GT
Asus a8n-e motherboard

You're not going to like what we have to say, but you need to build a whole new system. That's the honest truth.

You could a new generation video card, but then your motherboard slot or the processor would hold it back. You could get a new proc, but good luck finding one for that socket. A new CPU and mobo, but then your video card would still be lacking. Really, the bottleneck is the whole thing. Replacing or upgrading one part in there honestly won't get you anywhere.

Listen to Bigtoyota479 as it is good advice. I just gave my sister a similar rig for surfing the Internet and playing browser games.
