ATM my P.C has a 250GB HD 256MB Nvidia Video Card and 2 GB of ram.
Which should I upgrade first?
which video card? 2GB of ram is plenty by today's standards, and unless you're out of hdd space, I'd go video card first, depending on what you're doing with it.
details are overwhelming
but as said, unless you are a hardcore or you just want to upgrade in increments of $50, you could pick up another HDD and a awesome vid card for less than $200
I would not call anything under $250 "awsome".
Why do you want to upgrade? Unless there is a specific need, it's probably not worth it. Save the money for something bigger.
Shut up, not everything has to be super expensive to be great, We need to see more specific specs to judge this further.
you have downgraded now from "awsome" to "great".
I'm not saying everyone needs a $200+ card. I don't. But to call anything sub-$200 "awsome" or even "great" then I do think you're a tard.
Ignore Jolly and stay on topic.
We need full specs and we need to know what you use your machine for. Based on current info, I don't think you need to upgrade anything.
Sorry was at school when I posted this.
Sorry can't remember exact specs, but if it helps I purchased it from HP.
Vid card= Nvidia 7300 LE 256 MB
And I use it for Gaming. MMO's mostly.
are you noticing any poor performance, or do you just have money burning a hole in your pocket?
because if its the latter, you can put your money toward my Newegg account, it will be like you bought computer parts
I just want to know for future reference when I do have the money to upgrade.
You still need to tell us what you use your computer for.
I spent like $130 on a XFX GeForce 8600GT and I think its a pretty darn good card. I'm not a hardcore gamer, so no big deal. Not bad for a DX10 card.

MMOs usually don't have the hardware requirements that say a FPS would. So the next question is whether or not you plan on upgrading to Vista ever?
If you don't plan on running Vista, then you could run a Radeon X1950 or something like that and be fine
