Default What should i buy

Ok well i have money not much prolly about 30 pound to spend this weekend (60USD) so i have a decision to make
1)get another GB of ram
2)get a gpu
3)get a new hard drive
Ok well number 1 is my initial thought cos if i get a gpu it will be something crappy like a 8400gs and i would rather wait and get a 8800 in a few months
and i already have hard drives but they are IDE drives and my mobo now has sata ports , what would you get in this situation

Wait for the 8800, you don't really need the HDDs, so get the RAM.

I would def. get the drives seeing that you have IDE out dated drives. It should speed up your computer.
