I'm in Canada. Kijiji has lots of things for sale. I'm thinking the old 120GB IDE drive is the root of my evil. I have another pc that has an AGP port and sata II. I might upgrade to windows 7 and install the ssd I already bought (should have waited but it was only $60) and use my agp ArcadeVGA card. I would have done the full blown upgrade but the pci-e card is $150 shipped to Canada. As for the monitor, I have a 20" Triniton but I think it's starting to fail. It's jumping. I'll pull it apart and look for bulged caps. I really prefer having a CRT.
