The only thing for gaming you could upgrade in the future is the video card, though you have a higher video card than I do and I can play most games fine. So If you want to buy something I would go with a bigger hard drive, you can find 200gb drives for less than $100 some places now. But it doesn't look like you need any upgrades, almost all of your specs are better than mine

thank you,

i need something, cause my 2,1 gig pentium 4, 515 ram, 60 gig hard drive, (with less than 1 gig avail ) and a much slower videocard, loads games like battlefield 2 faster than my main computer with the stats listed previously,
abd beats it with a minute atleast load time is about 3 min for this computer and 4 min for my good computer, wondering why thats so

any sugestions on hard drives, i know some are faster than others, i need a fast one with good amount of disk space, you or someone else got something good in mind?

For a hard drive, I have a Seagate 200gb, and I have had no problems with it. Seagate is one of the best companies for hard drives. But I would recommend you get a 250gb because you can find them pretty cheap, only a little more expensive than the 200gb.
