Foxcon P35A-S Upgrade

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Wassup!

My friend wants a PC for gaming. He said for WoW.
The specs are in my sig rig.

I need some better DDR2 RAM, what's the BEST for gaming? Or second best

And, is the CPU is adequate?

Also, would a Velociraptor hard drive be worth the investment for this build?

Thanks!

you can only use 800mhz memory in the machine unless you overclock...
dont bother getting a velociraptor hdd get 2 1TB WD caviar black in raid 0 ...more storage and about the same speed
Intel Core 2 Quad Q9650 Yorkfield 3.0GHz is a nice upgrade for your mobo ..remeber to do a bios update first
