Are you going to be playing games alot?If not, Id start with a bigger hard drive, then depending on what your gonna do, a midrange 128mb vid card.RAM needs depend on which OS and what apps you are running.

If you are going to play games, definatly upgrade the video first. anything above a Radeon 9700 Pro will probably bottleneck though because of your processor. but hey, theres nothing wrong with a 9700 Pro, i'm using a 9500 Pro, and i can run Doom 3 (medium), HL2(high), Splinter Cell Chaos Theory(high), and Far Cry(medium) well over 40fps.
