Hi , I am learning up on all the computer guts what is better and what is not did find out I have a pci bus so that is sad since I use World of Warcraft alot I would like a beefed up Video Card and am now limited. My query is how to choose a good hard drive I have (from my own research) learned that a higher rpm (mine is 7200) is what to look for ?.#$#?
mine is a Hitachi hdt722516dla380 164GB & 7200rpm it does run Wow decently this comp was mainly built for business, however , I discovered Wow my first mmo and I am hooked (junkie) weeee. So I wanna start out with a faster processing hard drive my question is should I hunt mainly rpm and not worry about capacity? Thanks for any help I do have money just would like to not have to buy a totally new comp. unichrome pro igp is an onboard system if I am correct that means I have no Video Card? the only thing I found plugged into the pci busses was the conexant (for home and office use) rd01-d270.my memory is patriot psd512400 I noticed a empty slot next to it can I add another and double my capacity? Dont remember exactly but I do believe the system power was at 380 watts. I go in often to clean dust out and keep her running cool. amazing how much dust these suckers can take in. I do apologize for the mass of unorganized information and questions but heck this is "Geeks to Go" lol Help!

you need to educate yourself on all the components that make up a system...
a good place to do this is the TECH REPORT...they benchmark all the different components...a few hundred hours of reading should get you up to speed...enjoy...
