I have a P4 2.4ghz B with 512 cache. MSI 645e MAX Mobo. nVidia GeForce Ti4200 128mb 8X (doesnt matter since my board only does 4x). 512meg stick of Mushkin DDR 2700.
Now my question is with this set up, is it worth upgrading? Keep in mind I have no issues with any of my other stuff... Id just like to have Serial ATA drives and Raid DDR Ram. I would keep my CPU, my Video Card, and everything else... Except for the motherboard, Id need a new one for the features
I saw today that there is something called DDR2 coming out. Perhaps I should just wait for that instead? Or since im not upgrading my cpu or my video card, maybe I just shouldnt upgrade at all...
Also note that I wouldnt change all of my hard drives to serial. Just my boot drive. Too expensive to go all serial, plus I think most motherboards only have 2 headers and I would need 4.
And as a side question, is there any real difference between a serial drive at 7200 RPM VS a IDE drive at 7200 RPM. I know theres a difference between like the raptors at like 10,000 RPM, but would you see a difference in a 160gb Maxtor 8mb 7200 RPM IDE VS a Serial ATA?
Thanks alot for any information you guys can give me in advance. I aperciate it
