Default Its time to fix up my computer

Its time to fix up my computer (replace the IDE’s new fans maybe a new case) so though I’d upgrade some random useless part. I’m content with my motherboard/ram/processor and already got a nice video card and sound card what else could I add/upgrade?

I've got room for jsut about anything.

Might just get this for now.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835150076
MASSCOOL/SYTRIN KuFormula VF1 Dual Heat Pipes VGA Cooler - Retail $24.99

I don't do much hardcore gameing anymore but it's something to waste time/money.

I've got a Radeon 9550 can't hurt it.

Edit or maybe just this:
