    well you could get an x-fi sound card or a bigger screen (dell 3007?) or add some kind of mad cooling (water, phase change) then overclock for some extra performance.

    eeerrrmmm....?

    what about a ramdisk?

    Alright Ill buy the X-FI card today or tommorwon the X-FI pro yeah it will make the sound better my current sound card Is like 7 years old my friends computer died back then in 2000 and he sold it to me for like 10au and It still works it gives 5.1 sound and is much better then onboard but I guess after 7 years its outdated.
    Monitor im not willing to buy a new one I bought this one 2 months back and is really good.

    Cooling yeah I might look into water cooling and dispose of my fans which I have ab out 4 or 5 of.

    My current fans arent letting my pc overheat running high end games most of my fans are bigger ones anyway,Im not gonna overclock as I dont need it right now and Intel MainBoards are a pain to overclock if they can even do it most Intel's cant I know for oen my other P4 cant and the Intel D815efv P3 board cant.
    Im just looking for parts and Peripherals,Anything else besides the X-Fi

    If looking to spend money, buy 2 WD Raptor hard drives and set up a raid configuration.
