Default Got some spare what should i upgrade?

Well i have a spare $600 AU (about $500US) to spend but im really not sure what to upgrade.

I have been thinking i want to upgrade my HDDs, but i was looking at getting two 7200.11 500GB seagates and raiding them, but thats going to be over $400 alone. Or should i just get one 750GB?

I was also thinking of getting a 8800GT, but then i havent had my GTS for long, and it wouldnt be a huge performance leap. I dont think i could sell my GTS for much now...

So what would you guys upgrade on my system in my sig?

you could definitly sell the gts. just sell it before the revision comes out. you could prolly get around 300+ for it, enough to cover the cost of the 8800GT, or wait for the G92 revision. and then there really isn't much you can upgrade other then modding stuff on the case.

but yeah go for some more elaborate hdd schemes.

A notice to EVERYONE who has posted here with a computer problem, I highly encourage you to keep current with the forums, even if it's browsing for 10-15 minutes during lunch, or before you go to bed at night. There are many things that you can learn and apply to future issues. My goal is to help people get to a point where they can use their own knowledge to help themselves, and others.

Also please use the search button. You've got a 50/50 chance that someone's asked your question and we've answered it.
