For me? The best thing for $50 would probably be RAM or a HD... and it would also have to be pretty wimpy like 4GB of RAM or a 320GB HD.

There's not much you can get for $50... But for YOU? I have no idea because you didn't say what you have.

Maxed out on RAM, just got a SSD, and have a 1tb HDD, I have a decent cooling system... I am thinking about some sort of case or something... right now I have this big bulky black box... it works but it is kind of ugly and has no personality...

Save and get a good case? Why are you limited to 50, why not keep saving for an awesome looking case.

Nothing unless you need to replace a cheap piece of hardware like a keyboard or mouse. The only decent upgrade you can get for around that price point would be a Bluray burner but not everyone has a use for one. I paid about $60 for mine.

Yeah, gotta admit, getting my Blu Ray burner was a waste of time.. Everything I use is digital download apart from when I was installing my OS.
