Default Assistance Required - what to upgrade for play the latest PC games

Hi guys after talking to one of the mods they susgested that i start here if i want to ask you guys about P.C's. I am think of upgrading my P.C, my parents bought it for me last year around august, however as i'm sure most of you know thats a long time in the world of computers, my current pc's specs are: (and tell me if you want any more info)
C.P.U 2.2 AMD 4200+
R.A.M 2 Gigabytes 667 mhz
7600 GT
ASUS M2n mx motherboard.
500 watt power supply

If you guys wouldn't mind could you advise me on what i should be looking at to play the next gereration of games, i dont want something that's gonna cost me heaps either, i'd rather keep it cheap and if possible utilise parts from my current one.
Thanks

Hey Aussie, welcome the forums.
Your CPU and RAM is sufficient for current/next-gen games, as is the 500W PSU.
Your motherboard is PCIe based so that's a good deal.

Currently the best value/performance product is the ATI Radeon HD 4850, so try to find one near you at a decent price ($150)
