Please let me know any suggestions you might have on building a new Rig while utilizing any of the parts of my current one.

Please leave links to the parts you suggest getting.

Thank you for your time.

From what I can see the motherboard is a very limiting factor.

It has no PCI 2.0 support. I would suggest upgrading to a new AM3 motherboard and picking up a new graphics card, something like 6870 or 6950 (if your budget can go that far).

Your pretty much looking for a decent overall build, minus the CPU. This could leave potential to upgrade to AMD's new BullDozer if you wanted to in the future.
