    Re: Any Gain by upgrading vid card

    OK, first of all, as is obvious by my system, I don't go out and buy the best of the best. So I don't want to spend $500 on a vid card alone. But I would spend $250-300.

    Re: Upgrading older computer with newer parts

    I have a Maxtor and a WD. I believe the WD was the original and thus had the operating system on it (vista)
