I'm going to be heading off to college in the fall and I want to upgrade my computer so I can have for atleast a few years in college. Here is my current system.
Evga Geforce 6600 gt Pci express 128mb
Asus P5GDC-V Deluxe LGA motherboard
p4 2.8ghz LGA processor
Antec Lanboy Case
Western Digital 80 gb IDE hard drive
Corsair 1 GB XMS memory
This is what I want to upgrade to
CORSAIR XMS 2GB (2 x 1GB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM Dual Channel Kit System Memory - 286 $
Intel Pentium 4 651 Cedar Mill 800MHz FSB 2MB L2 Cache LGA 775 EM64T Processor - 277 $
XFX PV-T71F-YDF9 GeForce 7900 GTX (665MHz) 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card - 529 $
I would just like some input if theres anything I can change or things that I can buy for cheaper but do the same thing.
also I would like to get a new hard drive, can anyone give me recommendations for new SATA Hard drives? I want to go to 350 gb or more if possible. I've heard that the 16mb cache Hard drives don't work with intel processors. Is this true?
