well, that's easy.

8800gtx or x1950xtx GPU, 2x1gb DDR2 sticks, a microsoft habu (a blue-led version of the razer gaming mouse) / razer mouse, and possibly a 500w PSU to power all those drives & a new gfx card for your ""entertainment PC" system.

essentially what my last upgrade entailed.

here's my system.
antec p160 case
Abit KN8-SLI motherboard
amd opteron 170, s939
tt big typhoon heatsink, nexus fans.
Coolermaster iGreen 550w (replaced the PSU fan too)
2x1gb DDR Corsair Twinx
2x320gb SATA, WD 3200KS
2x320gb SATA, Seagate 7200.10
2x320gb IDE WD HDDs
HIS x1950xtx PCI-e GPU
Logitech G15 LCD keyboard
Microsoft Habu (razer) mouse
Dell 24" 2405fpw LCD monitor.
xbox360 PC gamepad controller
pioneer 111D 16x DVDRW
DVBt TV tuner card.
... and Vista Home Premium.

i suppose i could change the HSF to a noctua, replace the HDD's or consolidate it with a NAS/media storage unit like a NSLU2 or a thecus n2100 or swap the case, motherboard & CPU, etc.

hmm. might try the NAS next, always wanted to move files away from the PC, moreso when you have 2tb+. (really can't find a music player that will load/sort through ~400gb of music and work with an ipod in vista/xp/linux. quite depressing. media server might be the answer)

hmm, sounds like a good pc, maybe if you add 2gb more ram (thats all i could come up with) and maybe 8800 for dx10??
maybe even core2?

i use this comp mostly for games, uni stuff, composing music, watching dvd's sometimes.

my comp:

e4300@2.97 (1.4v)
p5b deluxe wifi
2gb kingston 667
x1950pro (256mg)
zalman 9500led cpu cooler
600w (decent but cant remember the name) psu
cooler master case (cant remember name)
marantz (circa 1970s) amp with seinhesser / philips headphones
19 wide lg (5ms, 2000:1 contrast)

cheers

e4300@ 3.55ghz 1.425V
asus p5n-e SLI
2gb adata DDR800
SLI 8800GTX
tagan 1100W psu
gigabyte aurora case

Easily need a new CPU

hmmm,, upgarde... i you have a big rig there... probably upgrading to a quad core would be your next bet... then a second GPU... and you haven't even shown your HDD ('s)... so then add another couple of HDD's in RAID0...


my beautiful rig... (it's a lappy.. but just say what i should upgrade.. anyway as if i could do it like a desktop)...

Mobile Intel Celeron 1.5ghz
GeForce 420 16mb (AGP 2.0 4x transfer rate)
1 stick of 256 DDR
20GB HDD




(P.S. I'm not running vista)...

I think you are in for a completely new system, except for hard drives and graphics depending on if it is AGP or PCI-E
