Default Hmm, I'm bored. What should I do?

Okay, I'm bored and have a few paychecks from work layin around. I'm gonna save most of the money, but what's something neato I could put in my computer for under or around $60? Most of you know my specs. P4 3.4, dvd rom, dvd/cd rw, and guess what gpu... Anyway, any ideas? Thanks.

i would mess with the cooling and try overclock
make sure you got good airflow in your case, maybe start doubling up fans

Yeah, I was thinking maybe an aftermarket GPU fan and heatsink. I already have 3 case fans. How hard is it to install a gpu fan?
