^batuchka has some great suggestions as always. Here are some other combos you might wanna use though.

Larger HD & better Case:

Same Mobo & better graphics cards

CPU & Cheaper Ram

I highly suggest considering using the first two as they will provide you better performance and more HD space for about the same price because of the combo discounts.

it's a nice build. with some savvy comboing and bargain hunting you can probably milk enough extra bucks to upgrade to a 5770, which is a big jump.

edit: i see i've been beaten to the punch by excellent suggestions
