yeah, a flat pannel 19" would be sick.


Theres no point in getting more ram until you 're getting dual channel mem, which means there point in doing until you upgrade your mobo, which means theres no point until you get a new cpu.


If you ask me, Id say you should just build a new computer. It says you're getting a new mobo, ram, cpu and hdd? get a graphics card and canniblize some parts then you'll have 2 machines. You can make one a server for LAN's and stuff.
