thats a pretty nice system already!
If you want to upgrade, and if you game alot
I would surely up to a 128 meg video card....can be pricey
but well worth it for what you are using your pc for.
You might wanna consider adding a dvd drive for playing
regular dvds and/or ripping of dvds. You could also
add another hard drive...you can never have enough drive space... 80 gig for $100 us. And if that is an actual 24x cdrom and not a cdrw... I would definitely install a burner and/or upgrade the cdrom. Hope this helps ya!

well im aiming to spend between £1000 and £1500

thanks for any help in advance
for that much money ... you can get more stuff than mentioned ...

I suggest you get atleast Sound Blaster Live! since you watch DVD ...

By the way ... you will also need a DVD drive instead of the 24X CD-ROM ...

Good Luck!

Sorry for the late reply ...

Best sound card? IMHO ... Creative SoundBlaster Audigy ...

best cooling system company? IMHO (again) ... SwiftTech ...

Good luck! ;)

Yeah it is old

If you into games, I suggest going a single processor solution, games are not written for dual processors or dual cores yet.
