i have about £200 to spend on an upgrade and as my motherboard supports a 4x apg and i have a 5700 nvidia graphics card would i be better to upgrade the motherboard and prossesor to a amd64 3000 and keep my curent graphics card or just replace the card for a 6600 gt

What is the main use you put the PC to, and what are the rest of the system specs?

(IE CPU, RAM, OS, etc...)

the 6600gt will improve gaming a lot and is a lot easier upgrade.

The RAM may not be useable on the new motherboard depending on the speed of the FSB of the new processor so I too would vote for the graphics card upgrade.
