Time to upgrade?

  2neat 21:59 27 Sep 2004

I recently purchased a Rad 9800 pro 128Mb. I have a P4 1.7 G,MSI 645 ultra(4* AGP) and 768 DDR 333RAM. I have the latest cat dvrs. I seem to be getting lag when gaming even offline(even on low settings). I have updated & tweaked BIOS but still no improvement. XP Pro SP2
Do I need to upgrade MB and CPU? If so what do you recommend? I was looking at Asus P5P800 (Socket 478) & Intel Pentium 4 530 "LGA775 Prescott" 3.0GHz (800FSB). I would like to use existing RAM. What would be a fair price for old MB,CPU & Rad 7200? Thanks for your advice.
