You will need to replace the memory as well and most likely the power supply too if you are going to add any half-decent graphics card in there.

Yes. This is an OEM box in which they have limited the possible upgrade path to make as much money as possible. It is not in their interest to give you a decent upgrade path, they want you to buy a new system (from them).

Do you want the upgrade total to be below $100? Or below 3x $100?

If the latter we'll attempt to get you a CPU/board/memory/PSU combo of reasonable quality within your budget.

Yep, that looks like the way to go. Remember if you are running more than 3,5GB of internal memory you need a 64bit version of windows to see all of it.

put in a good $70 power supply like this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6817151094
or even $80 like this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6817151096

and you are all set.
