Everything looks good. Maybe a soundcard if you game or listen to music often. Or a new HDD if you need some more storage.

Your rig is fine. How does GTS work under your 32" monitor? Maybe get another Seagate 250GB for RAID0.

I would say get a new hard-drive (or RAID, but I don't think your mobo supports it ). You could also go for vista home premium 64-bit and 4gb of RAM

Yeah I listen to music a lot, good call.

My GTS handles 32" so well. I can play Crysis on High settings at 1920x1080 and get around 33 FPS. RAID0, I'll definitely look into that. Thanks.

Yeah, I would like to get RAID0. I'm pretty sure my board supports it, but wouldn't I be better off getting a RAID card? Vista, meh. I had Vista for a month, didn't really like it.

4gb of RAM probably is worth it in XP - you're only going to lose 0.75gb. A dedicated RAID card may be better, but you need a good quality one = expensive. You may as well use onboard RAID, which would give you quite a performance boost.
