What's Your Next Hardware Upgrade?
« on: April 17, 2003, 01:30:52 PM »
Just wondering what people are thinking about when it comes to the big question, "What's Next?"  I'm really not sure right now, but it could be some PC3200 or a DVD Burner.

Video card definately.   Thinking of either Radeon 9500 pro or 9700non pro,  depending on the budget.

Life is a toilet.  As soon as you get caught up, someone flushes you again.

Nforce Mobo or a DvD-Burner, plus i have a few other little upgrades that i wouldn't mind doing, it could be an expensive summer!!

although i was considering water-cooling a couple days ago, cause this stinking fop32 fan is driving me up the wall

Remember kids, if you happen to find yourself upside down and on fire, you've just discovered the meaning of "too fast".

I have thought about getting a RAID controller cause I have 2 80 gig IDE drives.  My board has serial ATA raid, but I dont' wanna buy whole new drives, or even get the adapters for serial ata raid.
