Most of the new videocards have a faster processor than your CPU if you're using a 1ghz....it doesn't get much more imbalanced than that.
You can get the same video card, processor, MoBo, and memory thats in my sig for about $700. Just port your hard drives over and be done with it.SAGER/CLEVO Laptop: SHIVA
i7 740 at stock speeds
ATI 5870 Radeon at stock speeds
320 GB HDD@7200 RPM/160GB in bay 2
(I highly recommend these cases. Easy to maintain and upgrade as a desktop)

Yea start with getting a new cpu/mem/mobo. Keep youre ti4200, then when you have morem oney buy a new video card. Getting a new video card with what you will more then bottleneck the thing, like said above they have video cards where the memory is faster then the cpu in ur system.
