What would you upgrade

I am thinking of upgrading my hard drive to a

But is the performance going to increase a lot or not.

Depends what you want to do with your pc,

A hard drive upgrade would be a good idea and also if you are planning to play games a new graphics card wouldnt go amiss.

Don't think you will make it any faster no matter what you change. As above if you are into Games then a dedicated Graphics card would help

A new hard drive won't improve performance just give you more storage space.

The Seagate is cheaper here:

but even better (as it's a 400GB WD Caviar SE at a similar price)

The JB normally represents a better warranty level.

I've had no problems with my WD Caviar SE hard drives (JB versions) over several years - only reason for change has been to up the capacity available.

if it's a new pc with vista a seperate graphics card will make a vast difference.

Would seem unlikely to be a new system with only an 80GB HDD.

not.
the reason i asked if it was new, was because of the age of the cpu.

  woodchip 23:36 14 Aug 2007

Yep some of the £199 Computer Base stations do come with 80Gb's

Yes I used my old hard drive.
The barebone unit only had a case,psu,ram,mother and cpu.
