Well this depends, what do you do most on your comp? If you game a lot, then you are probably gonna want to get a new video card, or if you're just a casual gamer or don't play a lot of the newer, more graphic intense games you could stick with your current card. And you might wanna add another hdd depending on how much space is on your current one. Everything else is fine.

HDD i don't need, even with a lot of games, you don't play all at the same time, so i just uninstall and save the saves. A graphics card i am in the market for, but i will only get anything below $250 that would be a substantial upgrade, so i will bide my time. The only demanding game i got is Half Life 2, and it plays it ok. But in the next few months, it might be unavoidable and i will have to get a new one. Maybe the current crop of high end graphics cards will be cheaper in a few months
