I have $500 to upgrade my system or buy any other toy but still unsure on what to get.... HELP ME!

I was thinking of getting a 24" LCD, possibly another HD4850 or a new video card, or even a used MacBook Pro (2006 model, 2.16GHz, 2GB, 320GB 7200rpm hard drive... needs a new battery and possibly a new LCD screen... $400).

My current system is:

Intel Q6600
Asus P5Q-Pro
G.Skill DDR2 800 4GB (2x2GB)
MSI HD 4850
WD 1TB Black
WD 1TB Blue
WD 1TB Green
Corsair 750TX
Antec Three Hundred
Liteon DVD IDE
Dell 17" LCD x 2
Basic Dell PS2 Keyboard
Logitech Laser Mouse
Logitech Z5300 Speakers

The 24" and second HD4850 or a single more powerful card would be my choice.

What games do you play? If they have DX11, a newer graphics card might be a benefit.

Otherwise the new monitor would be nice.
