Default 100$ What to Get?!?

Ok, I got 108$, thats it what can I get. Heres a list,

Memory, currently running 1gb, dual channel, would like to get another gb of dual channel, but I don't know if I can do that with my board, DFI LanParty Ultra-D 2, different kinds of 2x512mb dual channel ram, would that work?


Mice, I was looking at the G7, not the copperhead, razr thing or w/e.. because I have big hands,

Hard Drive, I would like a 250gb, 7200 cuz I'm running kinda low on space,


I would also, like to sell my gfx card for close to 100$ or something and then have about 215$ for a small budget for a 300$ 7800gt that I want.


I would also love a new headset. something not cheap but nice to lsiten to audio and games at night when the parents are in bed....




Thats everything I can think of that I want right now... What sounds the best? And what should I get?!?!?

I personally don't like the Razer mice. I returned mine and got an MX518 today Loving it.

Umm.. I'd either go for the RAM or the headset. G5 seems a bit overrated, an MX510 or 518 should be fine.

Id say get the mouse and a decent headset, unless your RAM is really holding you back. You can get some Hard drives for pretty cheap at some of the big stores like Best Buy and circuit city. Look through their ads on the weekends. Ive seen some pretty good deals on Hard drives from them.

The mouse is like $70 and you can get a decent headset for like $40
Im getting the Senn 150, which is $42 at newegg.

I personally would save up for a new graphics card, it seems to be the only thing holding you back from playing newer demanding games.
Also, if your mouse isn't very good, then maybe buy the G5 (or G7 if you really need to), then put the extra money toward a graphics card.

If you're running low on Hard Drive space get another hard drive. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822144184

Here's the headset I have. They're very nice for the price. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16826106009

I recommend upgrading your video card later on.
