Well, I decided that I am not gonna fidget with my processor as far as replacing it. I dont need the extra speed and honestly, I don't want to blow more money on the computer right now. This way, my Raid 0 is also covered by extended warranty for the next 3 years
. What I WILL do though is:
1. (Already Purchased) 4 gigs of HyperX Kingston memory cas 7
2. OC the processor to 2.8 to 3ghz depending on stability
3. Purchase http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822136458
for the Raid 0 and order the hard drive caddy from Dell/Alienware
4. Upgrade to Windows 7 ASAP
I think doing the above should get me more than enough speed to do what I want to do. My question, though, is: Can I buy just 1 hard drive and match it with whatever is in my M17X, or do I need to buy two completley new hard drives to accomplish my Raid 0?
... and as far as graphics card, I have no choice, I am getting the Dual 260m GTXs which should hopefully pump out enough juice for what I want to do.
