no budget

swapping ram

 

what would give me the best perfomance boost? at least 1 gig dual channel, preferably 2 (sounds like 2x1gig dual channels havent caught up yet??)

seems like somins up w/the yellow slots via threads ive skimmed through, so definately something that can work around it

 

THX :D

interesting and confusing ill havta reread the thread tho

dont plan to oc until theres a need for the performance increase, heh

dont understand enough bout ram yet but still learning

what would be some good brand model sets should i look into? 4GB if its going to offer the "best" optimization of this beast

 

*edit-meant to bring it up in 1st post. been worried since i swapped in the 7900's, n future plan to raid, if i should be looking into psu upgrade too?

i dont recommend 4gb, unless u wanna be extremely future proof.. even 2gb as it is is adequate for many tasks. xp can only see 3.2gb anyways.. i think

 

ones i recommend:

 

OCZ GX XTC PC4000 2x1gb

GSKILL HZ 2x1gb PC4000

 

psu upgrade.... umm what you have should be adequate, but if the need is there theres pc p&c's options or fortron's 700watter...

oki just making sure that i still have a safe amount of headroom

 

since its better to buy it all in 1 shot if im planning on maxing out, to save the trouble later and avoid mismatching. also want to make this rig as complete as i can cause im just going to build another rig in the future instead of upgrade. im going to assume the limit will be negated when vista is released?

wouldnt i want to go for platinum instead of gold ocz if im going for "best"?

u state pc4000, i thought i could only go to pc3200? :confused:
