What to upgrade for christmas


I am looking to do some component upgrades to my pc for my Christmas gift to myself. looking for better performance for gaming (BF3 / D3 (when it comes out) and other mainstream games) and just general usage. looking to keep upgrade in the $300.00 area. Really up in the air on what to do in terms of noticing a difference. I want to feel I got something for the $300.00 upgrade that won't feel outdated in two weeks. Just components to my system not trying to build a new rig ground up or anything just switch some components. Thanks for any ideas.
