How much hard drive space do you think you would want? I notice you said you do downloading...enough to warrant massive amounts of space?

if your downloading off the web, a new cpu is not going to speed things up i dont think. thats allmost all about the connection speed.

What taste said. This will speed up your computer, not your connection speed. But you will definitely notice a difference.

And I finally grabbed some parts together.

Newegg.com - Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases

Newegg.com - PC Power &#38; Cooling Silencer PPCS500 500W ATX12V &#47; EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Power Supplies

Newegg.com - Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Wolfdale 3.0GHz 6MB L2 Cache LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor - Processors - Desktops

Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3R LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

Newegg.com - OCZ Reaper HPC Edition 4GB &#40;2 x 2GB&#41; 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 &#40;PC2 6400&#41; Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

Newegg.com - Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 ST31500341AS 1.5TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb&#47;s Hard Drive &#40;bare drive&#41; - Internal Hard Drives

Newegg.com - EVGA 512-P3-N954-TR GeForce 9500 GT 512MB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

Newegg.com - LG Black 22X &#40;CAV&#41; DVD&#43;R 8X DVD&#43;RW 16X DVD&#43;R DL 22X &#40;CAV&#41; DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 12X DVD-RAM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2MB Cache SATA 22X DVD&#177;R DVD Burner - CD / DVD Burners

Newegg.com - Acer X223Wbd Black 22&#34; 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd&#47;m2 2500&#58;1 - LCD Monitors

All that comes to $957.45 after shipping. Also, there's $85 bucks in mail-in rebates, so more savings there.

There's some wiggle room on some of the parts. Here's a case alternative:

Newegg.com - Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases

I recommend the 4gb of RAM because memory is so cheap nowadays, but we can go down to 2gb if you wanted. Also, you can grab a smaller HDD if you want, but the 1.5tb is a really nice HDD in general, and it has loads of room for not a bad price.

484 kbs on uploadin

your 15k download is pretty decent imo, better than my 10k,

but that less than 500 uploading is horrid, i dont know what the problem is.

usually your upload is about half your download from my experience. your upload should be near 5-8k.

perhaps you can look into that upload speed and pinpoint a problem.

i just ran it to give you an example
