Well you can upgrade the GTX as long as it can be supported by the mother board.

Not worth it, IMO. If you really want to upgrade your video card, you should wait till Nvidia releases their DirectX 11 cards later this year.

Going from a GTX 260/216 to a GTX 285 is just a big, fat waste of money.

I agree with jackbomb...you'd be paying over $300 for just a minor performance increase.

Is your "Intel Classic Motherboard" overclockable? If you feel you need a boost, reclock your CPU to 8 x 400MHz (3.2GHz) & set the RAM to run in sync at 1:1 ratio. If that's not enough for you, try overclocking your already overclocked GTX260.

Thanks for the answers! I really appreciate it!. In december my pc would be almost 2 years old and i might sell it to my father cheap, so i save money this year, and by december i might be able hopefully to buy a new pc, I would have around $1,200 usd, maybe its time to research what i should need.
