Best upgrade options?

Hi my pc is getting kind of old for new games so i was thinking of upgrading

here are the specs:

Pentium 4 3.0ghz 800mhz FSB
1.5gb DDR ram
ATI x1300 pro 256mb AGP graphics card

i wanted to make the computer better for gaming but the motherboard only has an AGP slot

this is the best AGP graphics card i could find click here

its £90

so my question is, it it worth paying that much? or should i just buy a new motherboard + dual core cpu + graphics card all together?

how much will that all cost?

That card looks fine, but you would improve things quite a lot by doubling your RAM at the same time.

Your other alternative would be very much more expensive, though I have not actually worked it out, I would say at a guess about £250 minimum.
