Default What within my system should I upgrade?

I purchased this system 6 months ago and have some regrets about my choice in hardware; especially after havin read these forums.
From a performance standpoint, what would be these best thing(s) to replace within my system? Or would I be wasting money...
IE new mboard, more ram, PSU....etc
Just curious, thanks all...
Also rate my system if u want...

Nothing? If you were really picky, you could get a AMD 64, but tbh I don't think it would be worth it.


When the new GPU's come out at the end of the month, you could pick up a 6800gt for cheap.

That's not too bad.
Only upgrade I would suggest is maybe a more powerful video card if you have money to spend.
