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 DVDRW IDE
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.
