Question What to get?

OK I have exactly $100.25 to spend on my computer and currently I have a really bad computer. My specs 333 Ram, 1.33 Soket A Thunderbird, 7200 rpm 80 gig harddrive, extra 8 gig hardrive, gay mobo, and a retarted HSF, with a gay litlle case, also a geforece ti 200 videocard. what should I get? I was thinking about getting this heatsink

or this case

http://www.newegg.com/app/viewproduc...156-148&DEPA=1

Which says it has 5 external bays now I don't know much about cases but are external bays ones that are like the Dells? I don't think so right?

Don't worry about heatsinks or case, you need something like a better video card or CPU

If you have a socket A motherboard, I would recommend getting this AMD Athlon XP 2800+ for $98.90, including shipping. That CPU would be considerably faster than your current model. It comes with a retail heatsink so you wouldn't need to purchase one.

If you are planning on getting that HS which is quite good, I was considering getting it, it comes with mounts which you can attach a 80/120MM Fan on to it.

I wouldn't buy anything.. Save up 350$ and get an amd64 cpu/mb, your ram will work in it.
