By that time, 2gb will probably be the standard amount you will need to keep up with games. If they keep making games like BF2 it will anyway.

2gb isn't that expensive. It's only costing about $400 for mine. And it's OCZ ram. I bet it would be cheaper in Aussie.

Sound card, or hard drive maybe. $100 isn't much, it's like five days pay for me.

My views are more on number crunching and business related tasks such as encoding.

1. CPU
2. RAM
3. PSU
3. Video Card
4. Sound Card
5. HD
6. Opticals

Just don't download too many ripped movies or pr0n.

Or that thing will fill up faster than... something that fills up fast.
