What should i upgrade next?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hey Late Nighters,
Doing some late night shopping on new egg and I have hit a wall. I don't know what to upgrade next those are my current specs except i just ordered this crazy case http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811103008.
I do need a better sound card but my gf is getting me that for christmas kind of in a bind ideas about 150 dollars or less?

Perhaps a New PSU or a second HDD for Backups.

Or get both, Maybe a Sunbeam NUUO 550 watt, and a 250 gig hard drive for backup.


http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817709003 = PSU

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822144417 = HD

A little under 150 before shipping
