i have about $220-$230 to spend for upgrades for my computer. i need 4 case fans, a new gfx card, another stick of memory, and a new hd. and heres is what i came up with:
(4x) Speeze 80mm fan
(1x) Western Digital 40GB 7200rpm
(1x) Kingston ValueRAM 256mb ddr333
(1x) Nvidia Geforce FX5600 128mb agp8x
NOT SE VERSION!!!!
Im ordering from www.newegg.com
is there anything i should change? i cant afford much more, the prices along with shipping for the above items comes to about $210 altogether.
i already have 1 stick of the valueram memory, and it runs at 400mhz 2.5-3-3-6 at 2.7. and its rated for 2.5-4-4-8 at 333. so its damn good memory, and the fans have a 5 star rating from everybody who voted. the gfx card is extremely cheap and rated highly by everyone. and the hard drive is fast, and rated highly by everyone. if ya'all can find a better price for all those items together then let me know. if anybody ras any recomendations on stuff to change also let me know. cuz i havnt ordered yet, and won't be until next friday or saturday.
Edit- ive added 2 more things to my list of stuff to order:
Microsoft Intellimouse explorer v1.1 (the 3.0 is to expensive) 5x button optical wheel mouse
and 2 round ide cables so i can hopefully improve my case airflow a little better. and maybe get my temps lower.
that brings the price up by about $25-$30, which puts me right at my budget. but i have to babysit this weekend so i'll have an extra $20 or so to throw around with better/ more parts.
