Default What would you upgrade?

I have the ability to upgrade a couple things on my computer, and just feel like buying something new.. :-p

Right now I have an ASUS A8N-SLI Premium Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI ATX AMD Motherboard...

I also have:
AMD 64 3200+.
2GB Corsair XMS RAM.
1 BFG 6800GT Overclocked.

Those are the only things I could think of that I might want to upgrade.. the board stays though.. :-p

Any opinions?

The only thing I would get is a dual core cpu. Or maybe another 6800gt.

I would say save your money. Your system looks good. But if you do want to upgrade something, get a faster CPU and later on, upgrade the video card. But the first thing I would do is upgrade the CPU.

I'd keep your money personally - if I bought something everytime I had the urge... Well...

With that said, I'd probably say another video card since your CPU seems pretty good - although there's always dual-core to consider though. I'd say which I would personally go with, but your setup is so strong, that I'd save and surprise yourself with an entirely new build - maybe when AM2 comes out. With such a good build, aside from the "either or" from above, I really have trouble choosing one over the other. You just seriously don't even need to spend the money.
