I have an e3300 and a cheap 5450 with a BFG 450GS in it at the moment to play video. I know if I touch it, soon it'll be much more than the $200 worth of parts I originally assembled it with. I have the same rule with my friend's PC, I'm only allowed now to replace the TIM on the video card, and apply a backplate to for the Vendetta 2 heatsink.
The minute I start with...maybe just one upgrade...well that's a slippery slope and I know I can't trust my self restraint.
Edit: Damn, I just bought a 2GB stick of DDR2 to replace the 1GB stick on the HTPC.
