    the only thing that matters is the socket of the motherboard, and what CPUs it supports, If I were you I would do a full motherboard and CPU upgrade.

    you can get a P5K-SE for $128 and a good Intel Core 2 duo for $140

    You could buy a new CPU, but only up to 3.4Ghz, and it'll have to be a Northwood CPU (they're better anyway) You'll have to consider whether that's enough of an upgrade. You current CPU can't really be overclocked.

    That's not the fault of your processor, it's your graphics card.

    The FX5500 is one of the slowest 256MB cards you can buy, in Neverwinter nights 2 it's insufficient, trust me. NWN2 is still a relatively demanding game, I'll bet it recommends a 256MB card, but it really means a good one, such as a 256MB 7600GT.
