Agitating hopper:

Viewloader Revolution - http://www.actionvillage.com/is-bin/INTERSHOP.enfinity/eCS/Store/en/-/USD/DisplayProductInformation-Start;sid=scGnrrWlhj2navHNKzRnBr9sDjJ_NGzv-Yk=?ProductID=7VqsFAY7u58AAAD3G0ClA_2t
-Both are good hoppers and will feed about the same rate. The only difference between the two is that the empire reloader is sound activated and the viewloader revolution is activated by a sensor. When there isn't paint in the stack, the hopper will begin feeding.

-Compressed air/HPA
Basically, the bigger the tank, and if you go for a 4500 psi tank instead of a 3000 psi tank, the more expensive the tank will be. Its all personal preference. In my opinion, I wouldn't get larger than a 68 ci. A 4500 psi tank will give you more shots per fill than a 3000 psi tank. Some good brands to look for are Crossfire, PMI, ACI, Centerflag, and Nitroduck.

A new regulator will give you better shot to shot consistency and make your shots more accurate. It will also quiet your gun down when you decide to go low pressure. If your going to stick with co2, a good co2 regulator is the palmers stabilizer regulator. A good reg for hpa is the custom products regulator.

Electronic Grip frame
-This will increase your rate of fire, and you will be able to shoot alot faster than you could with the mech frame. You can find these eframes on this forum in the sales corner, or on ebay or on here: http://www.actionvillage.com/is-bin/INTERSHOP.enfinity/eCS/Store/en/-/USD/DisplayProductInformation-Start;sid=jA8gRGMTqEAg6yd7Gczg7Gm1M6BZTbpZxEc=?Pro ductID=HeisFAY7mq8AAAD8LHHHRzzL

- A feedneck was mentioned before, but I would get that towards the end of your upgrading, unless you really want one. The only reason is that it wont improve your guns performance.

-Low Pressure
You can make your gun low pressure, giving you more shots per fill, lowering the overall operating pressure of the gun, making the gun more quiet. The complete tutorial and steps on completing that can be found here http://www.ottersccustoms.com/lp.html

Hopefully this helps you out a little more:)

Yep, I think Live2Play pretty much covered the basics. Good luck man. Let us know how it turns out. I have a Rodeo for a 2nd gun and I am really impressed with it.
