you mentioned "bottleneck..."

i'd look at getting up to at least 2GB of RAM for that machine.

A stock-clocked X2 3800 will definitely act as a bottleneck. Does your BIOS let you overclock? Pushing it up to 2.5GHz should be quite easy and would give the GTX-260 a little more headroom.

If you can't overclock, get the GTS-250 instead.
