Since thats an old p4 and running ddr ram you'd basically be better of scrapping it all and starting with a new build. The 7950 gt is no slouch so you could keep that and add a new motherboard cpu and a couple gigs of ram.

Do you still have 1gb of RAM? Upgrading to 2gb (adding 2x512mb if you have 4 slots) can help smooth some games if they are paging to the swap file. I think a new GPU would under perform, being bottlenecked by your CPU.What computer do you have? And please don't say a white one. - Sheldon Cooper

With what he has there, the cost/performance of upgrading he's be better off going with a new board, cpu and ram. For the cost of 1 gig of DDR you can get 2 of DDR2, no to mention he's probably already at the cpu limits of that board.
