Need some upgrade advise.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I need some advise for a system upgrade.
I am gonna get a XFX 6800GS for christmas from my parents, and I have some more money to spend on RAM and a HD (my current one broke like 2 days ago, stupid cs:s) well anyways
as for ram i was thinking about maybe ocz revision 2? I want to stay under $150 shiped (a little overclockable and good for games)
and for a HD i don't really know what to look for. anything under $110 shipped and at least 120GB. any suggestions?

Theres some G.Skill TCCD chips on newegg, 2x 512mb, 151$ (2-2-2-5 and overclock crazy not voltage hungry) you could take the extra few $ from the HD. Do you want SATA drive or IDE?

to be honest I HAVE NO IDEA. I guess whichever is better haha i am still trying to figure out what ide / sata means. right now i have ide installed but i know that i have ata. so I guess either?

EDIT: do you have a link for this ram?

IDE uses the older connector like the ones on a CD-ROM and is a bit slower than SATA.
There should of been an odd skinny flat cable in your MB box that was about 1/2'' wide with thin ends, thats a SATA cable.
I believe he ment this RAM...
