Maybe a better CPU cooler, a GTS450, and a monitor?

Why the LOL? You ask for help and obnoxiously reject it. I know very well what I'm saying. Any new part would do nothing for this rig. On the Zalman you can't OC farther and at 3.4GHz you're hardly keeping up with anything. Anything else you want?
