I'm looking to get some upgrades to my system, so I was wondering if you guys had any suggestions/recommendations/advice etc.
- Motherboard: Intel DG965RY
- Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E4300 (1.8GHz)
- RAM: 1GB
- Hard disk: WD 160GB (Caviar SE, I think its called)
I'm looking to go to Vista this time, but I don't think I need a motherboard/processor upgrade - what do you think? I might go to a Core 2 Quad, but then I'll have to get a new motherboard too, as it doesn't support them. Maybe a faster Core 2 Duo?
- Hard disk: WD 500GB (SATA); can SATA and IDE run together, if I keep the old HD too?
- RAM: 4GB
- Graphics card: 8500GT or 8600GT (DDRII?)
- Speakers: Creative M-2600
- Printer+Scanner+Copier: Canon PIXMA MP145; one thing that concerns me is cartridge price. Does anybody have a recommendation instead of the Canon?
- Power supply? I think I'll be needing a better power supply - what kind of Wattage should I look for?
Would love to hear from you guys about this. Thanks!
