I think you're fine the way you are.
The only worth while option is the hard drive.


If you plan to overclock, get a GPU cooler.

If you are going to buy watercooling kits, cheap is not the way to go. You would have to spend at least $150. And I suggest making your own watercooling kit by buying parts as well, not the pre-made kits as they are not as efficient, from what I have been told.

Here's a good way to look at it... Computer componets always get cheaper and women always get more expensive ;P
