what are you using yourcomp for, because if you want a major increase right now i would get a video card for your rig, seems like thats the only thing really missing from having a really good rig

Now just because I got that stepping doesnt mean you will, but its a good time, people have been receiving decent Ocer's lately (900mhz or a 50% OC in about 30 mins from installation is pretty damn good if you ask me)..
And get a GPU Bestbuy has PNY 7900GS' in stores for $150 outright... not a bad buy.... might be worth it...
I those two upgrades will increase performance pretty well, and wont cost a ton, 320ish dollars to pull them both in.
I am very pleased with my increase... I noticed things run better, and my windows installation on the new HD was faster all together, the system boots up quicker and runs smoother, especially with my OC hehe.
