tech questions on upgrading system

I'm noodling getting a new motherboard and cpu.

Now, here's my quandry... I have two component parts, and I need to decide if they're worth keeping...

Winfast A250 Ti-4600
This was a great card when I bought it-- it's STILL a great card. Is it good enough to warrant the purchase of a board with AGP instead of PCIexpress?

Creative Audigy 2ZS Platinum
While this piece of hardware is an evil little monster and absolutely does NOT play nice with others, it does have front inputs, and gives stillar performance once tamed. I'm hoping a new mobo might make it happier.

I'd also like to keep my Enermax Noisetaker II 480W PS if at all possible.

I'm considering moving from Athlon to Pentium because of heat issues in the room, but I understand that Athlons run a lot cooler than they once did. I'm also considering dual-core.

Any words of wisdom from the peanut gallery?
