What brands are the RAM and the hard drive.

1) Go with AMD for gaming. AMD > Intel for gaming
2) Get either a Seagate or Western Digital hard drive. They are more reliable
3) Get some corsair valueselect if you want cheapo RAM.
4) You should get a new PSU.

How about you replace that processor with a Athalon 3000+ or 3200+, and replace the vid card with a 6800GS. Go with the brands mentioned above for the hdd. Ive never had a problem with Maxtor drives either.

IS this a joke? A decent video card is going to be pushing $200, never mind the mobo and cpu.
