You should really have at least memory that has a speed of PC3200 (DDR400), you are not getting the best out of your CPU using DDR333 memory - good quantity of memory though.

What hard drive have you got?

Nice cooling. Nice mid-range graphics.

AMD Athlon XP 3200+ *400 FSB* Barton (2.2GHz)

1024MB Corsair TwinX XMS 3200 (Dual Channel 2x512) 2-3-2-6

I know that I have a lot of room for upgrading, but I just spent about 900 bucks on this thing and I'm going to slow down for a while.

AMD Athlon 64bit 3700 64Bit (32Bit Compatible) CPU (1Mb 2nd level Cache) Socket 754 or higher.

1 Gb (2 x 512 Mb) Corsair TwinX, DDR500, PC4000PT, Cas 2

256Mb X800 XT Platinum Edition (GDDR3, D-Sub, DVI, VIVO)


256MB GeForce 6800 ULTRA DDR 3 Tv/DVI

2x74Gb Western Digital Raptor Enterprise (10Krpm,8MB) on a RAID -0 configuration, using High Point Rocket RAID 1640 (4 channel SATA) controller.

For EXTREME overclockers use:

Yesico Fanless 420W PSU with TMS (Thermo Management System)

Vapochill Complete Extreme Edition - AMD (Socket A) Titanium with Side Window (FS-019-VP) £444 or $825 (USD)

The above cooling (+ cool looking case) will hit your CPU temperature down to -50 degrees centigrade allowing you to overclock your AMD Athlon by 1GHz or more.
althought the lifespan of the cpu will be dramatically decreased...
15'' Macbook Pro
Intel Core 2 Duo 2.16ghz

Windows XP/Mac OSX 10.5
