Default Opinion's on what I should do...

Well, looks like I'll be coming into some disposable income here, so I'm going to blow it on computer parts

My computer is in my sig, I built it for very cheap about a year and a half ago and its way out dated now, and is using the 939 socket.
I'll be getting around $400 and I know I will be spending about $200-250 on a 8800gt 256mb, but I am undecided on what I should do with the rest. I can either pick up a 4200+ 939 and try to squeeze some more life out of this socket, allowing me to get another hard drive since 250gb is 1/4 of what I need at least. OR I can get a whole new mobo/cpu and live with my 250gb for another 2 months or so. What would you do in my situation if you want to play the newest games coming out this upcoming year?
My Current PC-
Intel Q6600 G0 |Western Digital 250gb HD
Seagate 500gb HD | Western Digital 500gb HD | VisionTek HD4870 | 4gb Cruical Ballistix Tracer DDR2 800
850w Thermaltake PSU | Cooler Master Centurian 590 | 2x Dell 22" LCD
