I've actually had some experience with that motherboard. What a slug! Newer VIA LGA775 chipsets aren't the best, but I didn't think that they were that bad. Video performance just seemed to be extremely low...screen redraws were visible, and HD video playback was slightly choppy, even with a Core 2 Duo and x1950 Pro under the hood.

The 3.0GHz P4 is also no speed demon. Upgrading to a newer GeForce 8800+/Radeon HD 48xx would only shift the bottleneck to the CPU.

And upgrading to a Core 2 CPU would likely shift the bottleneck to that slooow chipset.

I wouldn't recommend spending any more money on that system. Best to just leave it as it is, and wait until you can afford a brand new computer.
