hahaha.. 1-4% increase. I think I'll stick with one. I just talked to my brother about my build and he seemed equally impressed with my choices. Checked a few compatability things and told me i should order friday or monday.

About 8 months ago i knew very little about pcs and was determined to go out and build my own for college. so i learned as much as i could w/o too much help from my brother. He works with computers for a living, so i tried not to bother him too much. I just kept messing around with newegg. It feels like graduation all over again!

Well I suggest the first upgrade you do once you get the money is a second 1gb stick.

Newer games are RAM hogs. Sometimes my ram usage goes up over 80% and I have 2gb
