Ok I'm ready to drop $300 on some upgrades... Wanting some input from OT first. Here is my current setup... MoBo: asus a7a 266 PRoc: 1gig Athlon w/ 266fsb Oc'd to 1.15 Ram: 768 ddr Ram 266mhz Video: GeForce 2 Mx 400 64mb RAM Hard Drive: Maxtor 80 gig 7200 rpm Optical Drives: 52x cd burner/dvd combo, 52x Cd-Rom Ok this thing is just too damn slow anymore even after a "fix all" format. Primary uses for this machine are Internet Browsing, BitTorrent, Playing Music, and messenger services. I do some light gaming but nothing intense at all so the video card is alright for now unless i get a motherboard with some integrated stuff that works alot better. I kind of want to get a bigger hard drive as my video and music collection is at about 55gigs after multiple cleaning sessions. So what does OT suggest. $300 maximum to spend. Cliffs this PC is 3-4 years old and its too damn slow.
