i dont think this is the right section, but would a pc3500 and a western digital raptor speed up my hp pavilion vx74 performance and speed? Im a 13 yr old with a few hundred dollars and i wanna get my computers performance alot better. Would it help if i give it 2 sticks of pc3500 and a new hard drive?

Nice guide. I've been looking all this crap up now for about half a year so I new all this stuff but I enjoyed reading it!

P.S. You may want to add that some cases have issues when it comes to having cables from the PSU connect to the mobo, etc.
