I know what you mean by parents being computer nazis. Mine wont buy a new computer to replace the 8 year old one they have because "this one works just fine". I cant really think of any reasons at the moment because im having the same exact problem as you, only with buying a whole new computer.

yep but you need everything to make it work.....so, best bet is to save up and when you have enough, buy it all at once. No point in buying a little at a time cause prices always drop....

I would wait> I personnaly dont recommend upgrading that 478...

Happy holidays.

Yea if you have the patience, you should save up for a new system. I know what it's like to wait painfully for your money to pile up.
