Hey Cross, I just bought 2gb of ram from Dell.

The memory type i have now is DDR2-SDRAM PC2-4300 {266MHZ}-[DDR2-533]

Two sticks have 512 mb of ram and one has 1 gb of ram.

I've decided to remove the two sticks of 512 and replace them with 1 gb each.

So i'll have 3 gb of ram tottal.



Now considering its Christmas and i Never buy anything for myself around this hellhole I've decided to go all the way and buy a new Video card as well.

I have looked at many types of cards but dont quite know where to go from here.Spec wise when it comes to this machine.

Do you have any recomendations as to what type card i should buy .My budget is open however im not going to go too crazy..3 bills tops...

Do you need any other stats on this machine, i could post to help you understand the limits of my computer.



Russ

well the cards I always use are nvidia ,but its up to you .. Like I said before I have a Geforce 8800 GTS 768mb and I like it ..........cost me around 350 last year ...my son has the overclocked version of the same card but its a 512 and I can`t really see a diference

The only thing is I had to upgrade the power supply from 350watt to a 800watt for the card and upgrade the fan (for overheating purpose).So you need to take that into consideration.



I just go for the top of the range card when I buy a new one ,as I really don`t bother with the money side of it ,as its the only thing I "treat" my money on.



Last time I looked the 8800GTS was 6th on the card list for nvidia.

I hear that the 9 series of the cards are good ,but I never had one as they came out 2 weeks after I got this one.



Sorry I cant help you more.....

Maybe Druid or Hamma can take this one up...?????

Russ, you ought to compare notes with Chris. He learned a ton as he built his custom rig. He found some terrific deals. Of course, by now he is probably deep into that case of wine, so good luck getting a readable response from him, but have fun trying! LOL.

Hey Mech I'm guessing if you bought the RAM direct from Dell you got reamed on it. I know they were expensive when dad had a dell.... might want to check that out.

Geno,You may be right..

I payed $51.04.

For the 2 1gb ram sticks.

I went through them because they scan your computer and set you up with the correct type of ram if that makes any sense.

About 4 years ago i bought ram from them 1 gb and i think it was like $60 then.
