Hi everyone, since Christmas is coming and gifts will come I'm thinking on upgrading my PC to be able to play games.

I currently own and HP Pavilion a6615la.

My current specs are these:

Motherboard Name: MCP61PM-HM

Chipset:nVIDIA nForce 6100-430, AMD K10

Processor: TripleCore AMD Phenom 8600, 2300 MHz (11.5 x 200)

Ram:
DIMM1: Kingston 2 GB DDR2-800 DDR2 SDRAM (6-6-6-18 @ 400 MHz) (5-5-5-15 @ 333 MHz) (4-4-4-12 @ 266 MHz)
DIMM2: Hynix HYMP112U64CP8-S6 1 GB DDR2-800 DDR2 SDRAM (6-6-6-18 @ 400 MHz) (5-5-5-15 @ 333 MHz) (4-4-4-12 @ 266 MHz)
DIMM3: ProMos/Mosel Vitelic V916764K24QCFW-G6 512 MB DDR2-800 DDR2SDRAM (6-6-6-18 @ 400 MHz) (5-5-5-15 @ 333 MHz) (4-4-4-12 @ 266 MHz)
DIMM4: ProMos/Mosel Vitelic V916764K24QCFW-G6 512 MB DDR2-800 DDR2 SDRAM (6-6-6-18 @ 400 MHz) (5-5-5-15 @ 333 MHz) (4-4-4-12 @ 266 MHz

HDD: Hitachi HDP725050GLA SCSI Disk Device (465 GB)

I already bought a GPU:

PNY nVidia GeForce 9800GT 512Mb PCIe lowpower edition

And I was adviced by you that I should buy this PSU:

Corsair TX650 650W

My question is, since I read something about "bottlenecked" components, should I upgrade something else?

I've been reading a bit and my motherboard only supports procesors on AM2 sockets until de Phenom 9600 series (no Intel for what I read).

All I want is to be able to play some games, like PES 2010, Assasin Creed's, GTA IV... Im not a hardcore gamer but I like to play every once in a while.

Thanks in advance !!
