Default What to buy next??

Okay.. my next paycheck i was wondering what to buy...

1 GB Ram (something i can use now in this god forsaken compaq, which would give me 2 gigs)

Giga Ram??
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820221004

or G.Skill?
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820221004

both are roughly 80 dollars before shipping and tax...

OR!

Should i buy the
Western Digital 10,000 RPM
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822144200

about 104 dollars

so i could learn how to put this in my case ahead of time....

See if you can replace the motherboard, with like an MSI K8N Neo4-F unless your compaq is a MATX, then go with something smaller and overclock your CPU. Then next paycheck get some new ram.
