You could get an Audigy 2ZS soundcard if you wanted. Maybe another HD in RAID.

Don't think another Hard Drive is called for - unless you download films or something? Would be good for a backup drive though - not in RAID of course for that use.

RAM is the best option - get some Kingston 3200. Give it a nice edge.
Beyond that: its a finely crafted sword .

well if you have the money yeah.

If you are on a budget I would recommend some Cosair Value Select Ram, I am using this very same ram it runs spectacular. and if you are going for ultra highend Corsair makes the best ram. You will find that people looking to achieve high benchmarking scores use this ram: Corsair XMS extreme memory speed series. They will run for $300 US which is pricey. Value Select is $170 US.

Sorry I dont have the pound conversion, But I dont know of any good UK stores.
