The graphics card is definitely your weakest component. A new GeForce 8600GTS or even a 8800GT would do nicely, just make sure your power supply can handle 26A output on the +12V and 500W+. Also 1.5GB of RAM suggests that they're not in dual channel mode, which means not optimum performance. If you're really keen you could upgrade to a pair of 1GB sticks.
