I have decided to upgrade my computer to be able to handle media streaming to use with my xbox360 and laptop. The only problem is that i really dont no where to start and being that im in Argentina right now im pretty much on my own with it. Here is my current configuration a GatewayGM5632E. I have also installed Windows 7RC 64bit. Both 500gb hard drives are filled with movies and music so im thinking of replacing one of the hard drives with a 1.5TB one and also adding an eSATA port. Since I dont speak the language here, I cant just take it to someone. I have a limited knowledge about computers so if anyone is willing to assist me I will be more than happy to compensate them. Also if anyone has any other modification suggestions that should be considered I will greatly appreciate it. My budget is between $400-$600 Keep in mind that I am probably going to have to order everything online. Thanks

The computer is nice as it is. A bigger hard drive isn't a problem however the machine only has space for two hard drives at a time so you wouldn't be able to have three hard drives in (this computer anyway) and copy data off the second 500Gb as you need a working installation to do it with.
