For just about 10 bucks more you could add another 50GBs and S-ATA 3.0GB/s, and another 16MB cache.

Western Digital Caviar SE16 250GB 3.5" SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM

Also for about 20 bucks more you could get "200MHz faster" processor than the one you have and a 1MB L2 Cache.

AMD Athlon 64 3700+ 1GHz FSB Socket 939 Processor - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103539

Those are two things I would look into, only 20-30 bucks.

Its a decent setup, however, dont expect the 6600 GT to play all games on highest settings. If u want to do that, invest in a 7800 GT
