    I currently have:
    celeron 2.7
    80gb hitachi hd
    asrock mobo w/ agp
    asus 9550 agp vid car (w/ dual monitors)
    creative sb sound card
    dvd burner
    dvd rom-to copy dvds from
    1 gb 3200 corsair ram
    vantec ion 350w PS
    generic case

    Over xmas break i want to upgrade to this:
    at least 3.0 P4 cpu
    478/775 mobo w/ agp
    retain my vid and sound card
    a fast sata drive for my OS and retain the 80gb hitachi for music/movies
    200gb external hd
    retain dvd burner and rom
    retain 1gb corsair ram
    new antec case

    would this be a worthwhile upgrade? Im unsure of wether to go w/ a socket 478 or 775? mobo,as i already have an upgraded cpu cooler for the 478 anyone recommend one under 125?

    Also, is my vantec ion PS good, ive heard mixed reviews, if not i may get a sparkle.
    and what bransds of small sata hdd is good?

    Thanks

    The harddrive space would be good for tv and movies, the cpu isnt really a needed upgrade unless you have a purpose for upgrading. :dunno:

    2.7 to 3.0 wont be a large jump (or even noticeable) in performance.
