Default Should I Upgrade

Alright my dad gave me $350 out of the blue last night.

I considering getting this upgrade.

1) Another 512 mb of Geil Value Ram - $74
2) Another 36.7 gb Raptor (I dont really have 2 like what it says in my sig.) - $110

Now my question is, do yall know of other upgrades that would be better for around the same price?

And has anybody tried pairing a 36.7 gb Raptor with its bigger brother the 74gb? Does that work well?

Also, Would three 512mb sticks do me any good or is the increased performance with the third stick of 512mb not noticeable?

Sig removed due to size. Please read the rules before adding your compliant sig. SigSanta

You only need one more. So 1GB is good. I suggest getting 2 raptors first. Getting a raid setup would be alot more useful then 512mb. You can always swing money around for a 512b stick of RAM.

I think dual 10000rpm SATA would be great.
