Meh, nothing to feel bad about. My original computer was an e6400 on a budget Gigabyte P35-S3G board with an 8800 GTS 320. This was when people were running Q9550s, P45 boards, and 9800 GTX+s/8800 GTS G92s.
Get the best that you can for your money, save up, and upgrade. Since you don't have much of a budget apparently, I'd focus on the GPU/monitor setup first since this will have the biggest impact on your gaming. Once you get more money, you can then focus on other parts of your computer (CPU, RAM, HDD, etc).

Really? Huh, what sort of performance increases did you see?
Being completely honest here; I don't see any sort of lag or hardware deficiencies playing 1v1s. But yea, definitely would like to know more about this.
