Default What next?

I know everybody seems to post this topic up, but what are you guys ideas on my next upgrade/add-on? You can see my specs in my sig. I was thinking of a Raptor HD (37G) for my boot drive and my current 80G for my music, games, and what not. The upgrades have to be within or around $200...my b-day is coming in awhile and so is Christmas. Gimme your ideas...and post the sites you got'em from too. Thanks...

I kinda agree with saving that money and putting it towards a larger upgrade A 6600GT is not gonna give you a huge boost in FPS

this is newest technology came out of Logitech, its like 20x precision and speed. check urself logitech's website if they have started advertising. (optical is sensor based), just consider optical has now become obsolute after laser mouse have came ionto market.
