Save the money and get a direct x 10 card once they come out. Everything is fine for now.

Stick it in a bank and let it build interest until you need to upgrade, 'cuz at the moment you don't. Was gonna suggest putting the RAM up to 2gb but you're doing that anyway.

Yeah, hard as it is, save your money for a conroe / cornrolls build. But if your stuck on upgrading, that graphics card is suspect. Sell it and use the money to get a 1900 or 7900gt. And your solid.

Use the ££ to go buy some :beer: and enjoy your pc, as it's already in good shape. ;)

But if you must buy something, which I can completely understand, go with Aristotle's advice above.

Another thing to consider is getting a good soundcard, as you didn't mention anything about what you have now. If you're using onboard sound, definately get a soundcard. Some soundcard suggestions:

Creative Soundblaster Audigy2 ZS Creative Soundblaster X-Fi XtremeMusic Auzentech X-Plosion Auzentech X-Purity (coming soon) (newegg links for info, not sure where to buy in UK)
