I agree, I think that you should get a new Processor and some more HD space, as the rest of that computer is just awsome. The X2 4800 should suit your needs well.

I'll check that hard drive out, If I was to overclock I would def. need to upgrade ram, the stuff I have now is crap, which is partly the reason I didnt overclock my 3700.

I really dont have a budget mind you, I just dont want to upgrade anything that isnt needed.

:-D
