If it was me I would stick with what you have for awhile longer and then just upgrade the CPU and/or video card. The only thing I would suggest upgrading now is going to 4GB of RAM such as http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145194. Now that I look at that price holy crap did it sky rocket since I bought it. Might be time to sell the second set I have sitting around for double what I paid :D.
