Default OK what to get

My birthday is coming up and I will get a present of around 150 USD and I don't know what to get. I'm thinking either RAM or a the extra little things like HS that will go along with my new computer when I get the money and the Computer now.

Could you list the detailed specs of your system, motherboard in particular?

Well I'm just waiting till I start my job this summer and then I get an extra 200 bucks so taht would be 600 and I'm getting this 150 so that is most of my computer and I was upgrading from what I got to a 64 bit maybe venice so I need a whole new motherboard as well and heatsink so I should make a good start on it now. so I was thinking about getting Ram or maybe a heatsink taht would work for soket A and 939 but I don't know.

Decisions decisions. Theyre a biach man.

I suggest saving the money and just rebuilding. 1.33 GHZ Amd isnt good enough for todays standards so i would probably start there.

Well yeah I mean that I was going to build a new system this summer and this would help me get a start on it now I want something I can use now aas well and just when I get the money just change all the stuff out. That is why I was thinking about the ram or maybe the HSF because The one I want is soket A and 939. maybe a new powersupply or maybe a new set of fans and cathodes I hate disicions.

I agree with DJ-Chris. Save your money and spend it on something worthwhile in the summer. If you absolutely have to buy something now, buy some RAM that you can use in both systems.
