    I'd definately upgrade the monitor next, to a nice 17" LCD, LG 1710B and the like at around £350. After that I would probably be looking at faster ram and maybe Athlon 64 next year

    I would say the monitor too, particularly as I know that you play flight sims.

    I'll say bigger monitor, but I'd also change the speakers!

    I've done some listening tests and trust me ... you'd be MUCH happyer with some Wharfedale 8.3s or 8.4s, compared with those mediocre Eltax ones!

    Athlon 64-FX obviously . Though by the other ideas, it doesn't sound too out of place.
