Knowing what your budget is would help. No-one is going to suggest a £400 gfx card if your budget is only £200.

Question: How many $$$ are you willing to spend on this upgrade? Because upgrades vary in magnitude -- if you want a dream machine, we can give you specs for things you need to buy, but then again -- if you want to just upgrade a few things, you should specify that too :)

Either way, getting more speed is easy, it's just deciding -how- you want to do it that is the difficult thing. (i.e., Buy $%^$-hot new video card...which is slowed down by your slow-ass processor? Not always worth the money...)
