Another upgrade is for my video card, was thinking if I should just went till the x800 come out, and the price drop, I have 9600xt in my mind! But because I don't do much gaming, should I just get a GF4 4600TI instead to save some money?
Thanks for help!
first go to www.crucial.com
and see how much RAM your motherboard allows. This should help out with your RAM choice, and as for working on your motherboard, most of that stuff doesnt matter, all you have to do is just put it in the RAM slots, start up your PC, and it should auto-detect the changes.
As for the video card thing, I have the 9600 XT and it is a WONDERFUL card, but since you don't do much gaming, I would definetely recommend getting a cheaper card such as the Ti 4600 that you listed.
Good luck! *thumbs up*
