AMD Athlon™ 64 3500+ with HyperTransport Technology

80GB Serial ATA 7,200 RPM w/8MB Cache

Alienware® nForce™4 SLI™ Chipset Motherboard PCI Express

256MB PCI-Express x16 NVIDIA® GeForce™ 7800 GT

Integrated High-Performance 7.1 Surround Sound with S/PDIF and Coaxial Digital Outputs

512MB Low-Latency Dual Channel DDR PC-3200 at 400MHz - 2 x 256MB

Just wondering what you guys think should be my first upgrade later (though I am set with this for awhile). I know my first one should be ram but I have a gig of ram left over from my previous computer so I will be putting that gig into this one which gives me more then enough so thats not a problem.

With all you can do with new computers a 80 G HD is really too small. The first upgrade i would do is a larger drive.

Alienware isnt the best choice for a pc and the price is too much for what your getting.

You could build yourself a faster pc for half the price.

Or order a custom one from a better company for less money as well, even getting a shop to do it is better than an alienware.
