    My current computer:

    Dell Dimension 4550

    Penitum 4 Northwood 2.4ghz s478 (does not support prescott cpus :( )
    350w Power supply
    Nvidia 6600 OC
    2 gigs of RAM (Max on Mobo)

    I have $200, what can I buy to get decent FPS on TF2, currently I am sitting at 20fps.

    Thanks in advance.

    Basically nothing. TF2 relies too much on the CPU for a graphics+power supply upgrade, which you could afford, to make any difference. A new motherboard, CPU, RAM and OS are out of your budget. ~80 $ for a decent motherboard, 110$ for a really good one, 50-80 for RAM, 80-130-150-190 for a CPU, 90-150 for an OS.

    the lowest "budget" for a decent Desktop in my opinion is at least 500 bucks..
