    Default Upgrading my computer soon, what should I start with?

    Ok, so I'm planning on upgrading soon, but I'm not sure what to start with. I'd like to eventually get to a AMD FX-53 939 pin on Asus VIA mobo, maybe up to 2 GB RAM, two Raptor II hard drives, and the next ATI card (waiting until Pixel Shader 3.0 is implemented)... but what should I start with? My initial budget (phase 1) is about $500. My stats are below:

    Athlon XP FX-53
    MSI NeoPlatinum2
    2 GB Kingston PC 3200 CL2 RAM
    ATI x800 XT
    Creative Labs Audigy 2 ZS
    21" Viewsonic Flat CRT
    Logitech Z-680 speakers
    2 x WD Raptor II
    120 GB Western Digital SE SATA HD
    Windows XP Home SP2

    I would go with the Raptor II's first.

    Yeah, you might as well get the drive and use it while waiting for money.
