  1. I'm mostly doing this for fun, but I've found that sometimes people come up with some really interesting (and good) ideas.

    Here are my specs:

    Athlon 64 3000+
    MSI K8N Neo 4 mobo
    1 gb corsair valuselect ram
    400W Powmax Power Supply
    EVGA 6600LE video card
    HP multimedia keyboard
    Logitech optical mouse
    Powmax Demon 2 case

    What would be the best upgrades in the following categories:
    0 - $100
    $100 - $200
    $200 - $300
    $300 - $400
    $400 - $$$$$$$$

    0-100 - GET RID OF THAT POWER SUPPLY!!!! NOW!!!!! BUY AN ANTEC OR SOMETHING!!!!!
    100-200 - Geforce 6800GT
    200-300 - Geforce 7800GT
    300-400 - Better RAM + 7800 GT
    400+ More better RAM, 2 7800GTX's in SLI. Athlon64 X2 4800+

    I must agree with MetalX on the $0-$300 categories. However, I think the best option in the $300-$400 range is a 19" LCD monitor (1280x1024 resolution). This is, of course, assuming you don't already have an LCD monitor.

    I forgot about the monitor. It's a 15" HP M50.
