Need Help Deciding

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
so im looking to possibly upgrade some stuff in my rig.

right now im running the athlon II x2 250 3.2ghz dual core chip oc'd to 3.6
asrock a780 lms motherboard, 4gb ddr2 ocz reaper 1066 memory, galaxy geforce gt430 fermi video card, blitz black case,raidmax 530w psu, samsung 160gb sata hd as primary, and 80gb seagate as storage.

what i was thinking of changing was the case to the haf case from newegg for 60, possibly the video card, and change the hard drive setup to 2 250gb drives in raid 0...any other reccomendations or opinions on parts is welcomed...

i don't game really, except for emulators, and watching movies and tv shows, facebook apps

I would leave it alone if that is all you do with it. Maybe if you must spend money, just get a better HDD: . Amazon is cheaper than Newegg and no tax or shipping. Then just use your 160gb as backup.
It's so little!
