Either:

Wait until you put that little extra dollar or two a day and upgrade decently
or
Sell the computer as a whole and then buy a computer

for everyone who says i can only get 30-40 out of my processor check this ebay listing out.

but i think i'll just sell my box to my parents who have a pIII 700 mhz dell for 500 or so and build a new one

The Xp3000 is a better oc'er than the 3200. The MoBo/CPU together should allow a TF7025/3600 for just a few $'s. The 3600 oc's pretty good on stock cooler w/AS-5. Don't forget the exhorbitent S/H charge and toss in the Katana when you sell. I would only swap Mobo/CPU right now. Save up for a 7900GS over the 2600/8600 series. eVGA 7900GS oc's well and is barely a C-note after Rebate.JMHO

Your on the right track with an X2 3600+ those are great CPUs. I personally have an X2 4000+ Brisbane CPU because it only cost $8 more than the X2 3600+. My CPU is is amazing. Right now I have it @ 2667MHz 1.2v (This is from a 1.3v stock Vcore and 2.1GHz stock CPU frequency) rock stable running Orthos for 24 hours. I have a Gigabyte GA-M61S3 motherboard that has onboard Nvidia 6100 graphics. For some reason the Gigabyte mobo won't go any higher even though my X2 4000+ is just asking for more. So the other day I bought an open box DFI Infinity NF UltraII-M2 motherboard and will use that when I get a PCI-E video card. I used that motherboard in a PC I built for a relative and had a X2 3600+ running at 2.85GHz stable. Here's some suggestions for your new build:

CPU
X2 3600+ Brisbane: $61.99 shipped

X2 4000+ Brisbane: $69.99 shipped

Motherboard
DFI Infinity NF UltraII-M2: $78.32 shipped (just to worn you it needs to have the right bios to run with Brisbane CPUs, the one I bought for my relatives was from eBay and the seller said it had been flashed to be Brisbane compatible. There's really no way to know if the one you buy will have the right bios but it is definitely a great motherboard)

Gigabyte GA-M61P-S3 ($83.32 retail or $63.32 open-box)

Biostar TF560 A2+ (supposedly a AM2+ board): $86.32 shipped

Memory
HP 1GB DDR2-667: $23.24 after a $40 MIR (hurry rebate expires 7/31/07). You can send up to five rebates in so buy more sticks if you want. I have this ram. I bought five of them when the price was at $16 per stick! The brand on my sticks is Samsung and I have tested two of them at 800MHz 5-5-5-11 1.8v. It's The best deal out right now for DDR2 memory.

Video Card
It's hard to pick a graphics card right now because all the midrange DX10 card stink. I would say either a 7600GT ($80.83 shipped after MIR), 7900GS or you could buy a mobo with onboard video. Don't get pulled into the DX10 hipe. Both Nvidia and ATI's midrange DX10 offerings are a joke.

PSU
You need a new PSU since all the new motherboards are 24 pin instead of 20 pin. Here's one that I saw on Ben's Bargains:
Antec EarthWatts 380W Power Supply: $19.99 after MIR (shipping not added)

I hope that helps you out. I my self just came from an AMD XP chip too. My new X2 4000+ is soooooooooooo much FASTER! h4rdcor3, if you have any questions feel free to ask away, I would be glad to answer them. Have a great weekend everybody!

Why do you need an upgrade? If it's for gaming just keep saving up...
