What to upgrade first?

Just curious what i should upgrade first on my PC.


38 gig hard drive - AMD athlon 2500 series proccesser running at 1.83. could be over clocked to 2.5 without to much effort, as i have neccesary cooling.
512 mg ram.
64 mg Nvidia GeForce 3 video card.
not sure whats in it for audio.
54x DVD/CD read only drive.
no floppy.
14 inch daewoo (sp?) moniter (free)
have a ball style mouse(free)
and polk audio speakers (free).

i paid 50 for tower, and 20 for a HP keyboard.

at this point i am thinking speakers as i cant adjust the volume on them, either have to in game or in windows.

optical mouse would be next. not sure if ill go with a wireless one or not.

A question. it has a wireless i-net card in it, but the card has no antenna. If i get a wireless router could i use it as is, or would i need one? the tower is roughly 10 feet from were the router would be. i use my borthers laptop for i-net as we dont have room for it in the office.

suggestions would be appreciated. tnx in advance.

2. Ram to 1gb
3. 100gb hard drive cheap these days.
4. flat screen monitor in the neighborhood 17" for $180

well, i bought a logitech wireless optical mouse, 1200 dpi, works great, and a set of GE speakers with sub for 25$ and 30$ respectivly. might not of been the best choice for speakers, but they work great, and its what i could afford.
