    Change the e6600 to an e6300
    Bump the RAM to 2GB
    Change the Hiper PSU to an Enermax, Tagan, Seasonic, etc.

    go with what listy said but keep the hiper psu they are really good and have possibly the lowest voltage ripple of any psu on the market at about 1% if you can find a tagn or enermax with that little ripple go for it but the enemax psu's have up to 10% ripple thats alot

    agreed, keep the Hiper mate, but Listy makes a good point with his other suggestions
