I would say grab these things
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black 3.2GHz Quad-Core Processor ($91.80 @ Compuvest)
Motherboard: ASRock 770iCafe ATX AM3 Motherboard ($62.55 @ Newegg)
Memory: Mushkin Silverline 4GB (1 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($24.98 @ Outlet PC)
Memory: Mushkin Silverline 4GB (1 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($24.98 @ Outlet PC)
Storage: Samsung 840 Series 120GB 2.5" Solid State Disk ($92.99 @ Adorama)
Total: $297.30

It will be a significant upgrade to what you have,even without a 6Gb Sata port the SSD will be a huge improvement.
