I have a second drive in my current computer, I was thinking that next time I format this I could swap it over. It's a 60GB Seagate @5400 RPM, which I put in at Christmas. Is it worth swapping or would I be better to put a faster one in?
I also forgot to mention RAM. The mainboard's dual DDR, so I'm after 2x 512MB PC 3200 modules. I'm told that I don't need to buy matched memory as long as I order 2 sticks at once so they're from the same batch. Would I be better to get branded and matched memory or would it not make a significant difference?
I've often seen Crucial on this forum as the way to go with memory, but what's the difference between their "64Meg x 64" and "64Meg x 72"?
Yes, it does come with the fan, but I've also been told (still need to check it out fully though) that the OEM doesn't come with the 3 year warranty that the retail does. I think it works out about £7 more, which I'd be happy to pay for the added warranty.
Also Aria are currently out of stock on the OEM and the price everywhere else for the OEM is near that for the retail at Aria.
