Are you looking for upgrades? If so I would start with your video card. Geforce 2 is ancient! You could probably purchase a geforce 4 for cheap now-a-days (if you could find one at all) and that would be a huge step up from what you currently have. You could probably go even higher than a geforce 4, but eventually your motherboard and processor will be holding your video card back so don't go too fancy on a new video card.

Other than that...did you say you had twenty 80GB hard drives?
