Need help deciding on what to spend income tax on!

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Alright, the ram I have will only run at 207 MAx, so I have to run a wicked divider to get my CPU up to 2.7.

So I was thinking ram. Possibly one of these two, but obviously I'll take suggestions.

or go with some nice 2-gig ram

OR

I was kinda wanting to get another XFX 7800GT and go SLi.

OR

Maybe go for an Opteron or a Sandy.

I dunno what to do

I was just reading on 2xgig memory round up and the OCZ was in the top 3 of memory. They OC like hell and you should be able to run 1 to 1

I was just thinking it'd be better than running on your 15" that you have now. So in that way, it could improve your system.

I think you would be better with a dual channel 2 gig kit 2*1gb... Especially nice with that vid card.
