all of the goodiies sound good, but the main things to achieve a fast system are of course the quad processor, the extra RAM and at least one extra hard drive to provide RAID0 striping. If you already have a motherboard to support these, then you can make a silk purse out of a sows ear with only $550 or so. If your board doesnt support quad core, but your case is reasonably modern and therefore the power supply suits.. you can get a quad core upgrade kit with 4GB RAM and motherboard for about 550 bucks. Add an extra hard drive as well if you only have one, and you have an extremely powerful and lightning fast computer which you have upgraded to for between $600-$650.
