Default The Upgrade Thread!

Is it raining outside? Are you stuck inside on your computer bored to tears? What are you to do except for day dream of what to upgrade on you PC!!!! Sure if your like me you probably don't have a dime to your name right now, but that shouldn't stop ya from planning

Post here your useless ramblings and planning for future upgrades

No silly, long winded questions though please

OK, for me, in order of priority

1. Notebook for College (Only 2 more weeks )

2. Sound Card and Speakers (6-7 weeks...maybe )

3. Monitor

4. And then maybe a Hard drive or ATi Radeon X800 XT PE if has them by then, if so the HD gets put to the bottom of the list

As for the rest of it......time will tell. I would like to upgrade teh case and PSU(worried that the PSU is cheap and unstable for the future), but would like to coinside that with a major overhaul, like changing the CPU and Mobo.......And as of now, unless I switch to AMD64, gains on the CPU side would be minimal and expensive, so maybe next year....
