Default What do you think i should upgrade next ?

ight here is what i had and went to ony my project computer , the updates go from left to right, right being the oldest, left being the newest



Pentium 3 700mhz | Amd Athlon Xp 2200+ 1.8ghz
128 mb sdram | 256 ddr ram | 768 ddr ram (333mhz)
TnT2 32 mb | Geforce Fx 5600 256mb (OC'd)
Stock MOBO | Asus AV78X-X
40 GB HD | 120 GB HD (MASTER) & 40 GB HD (SLAVE) (160gb total)
Sound STOCK | ASUS SoundMAX Stock sound
Stock 6X CD-RW | Lg DVD-RW 4X, CD-RW 16X, rom 52X
No Cooling | CPU FAN/HeatSink + Normal Case Fan
WACK CASE | NEWER but just as WACK CASE


im just wondering, in your opinions what should i update next,

i was thinking about buying an Athlong Xp 3000 but im not sure,

The HD is fine, and the RAm is fine, i like my Graphic card as well, but the REST is and NEEDS to be updated

So give me some ideas on what i should do, for cooling etc..

i will take the most logical and best, update the computer and post pictures for you guys to see, also i need some ideas on a Case i could buy that is nice and can fit my Mobo

Come on, you just answered your question =)
I'm not trying to offend you, but since you are happy with your RAM, HD and etc, why waste money on upgrade for them? I think pointless, get what you really need.

The most important thing is CPU, if you can upgrade to this, anything else you have already
