Default I have $350 to spend for Christmas, What the hell am I going to get?

Title basically says it all.

I need some things that I can start off on thing of getting so I come here.

Here are some things i still need for my computer:
Speaker system
key board
Mouse
New monitor
Upgrade my video card from a 7600GT to what?

Here are some other things I was thinking of getting:
The Wii
Any other good suggestions?

I have always been a bad chooser.
Thanks!

Personally, nice speakers is a MUST!

Then a nice monitor!


If I were you, snag a 20.1'' and then use the rest for the speakers.

Nah don't get a Wii...I hear it gets old fast. If you're into your music, get some nice speakers. The Z-5500s are less than $300 on newegg. Of course, you don't need to spend that much, but they're really nice.

My Wii gets newer every day.

Oh, why don't you sign up for Gamefly? or even Netflix.
