Default Upgrades HELP

Hey,

I think I might be spending a bit on upgrades for my pc, just got my paycheck today so after a few hundred to my mom for college, I have a few options:

1. 2nd GB of PQI DDR2 800 Ram
2. Creative X-Fi ExtremeGamer Soundcard (I have Logy x-530s)
3. WD Raptor for OS + Games

Or replacement upgrades

4. 20-22" Widescreen 5ms LCD (sell 19" 8ms LCD)
5. C2D e6300 w/Asus mobo (sell AM2 X2 and Asus M2N)
6. eVGA 8800GTS (Sell 7900GT KO)

So many choices...but basically.. I want to aim my pc for Crysis action when it comes out so I want to slowly creep up on it.
what do you think is the best idea? Will my 2.7GHz AMD handle DX10 crysis at 12x10? What is the best strategy? Thanks!

I think you need to upgrade your processor... Getting a 8800GTX for that would be a waste. We can't tell you whether you should upgrade your monitor from 19" to 20-22" as that's a personal choice. I know I wouldn't, because 19" is already pretty big and if it means you should give up on a new processor or a new videocard then to **** with that idea.
