Here's my current rig
E8400 4.2ghz
asus p35
2x2gb DDR2 1000mhz
Vista64
barracuda 7200.11 500gb
Radeon 6850

I am going to switch a few stuffs on this rig:
i7-920
saphire x58
3x4gb 1600mhz
radeon 6850
win7
(225$ ONLY for this upgrade!!!)
then I was wondering if I should be getting some other HDD... I know the answer is yes, but I would only do that if I was to get something REALLY cheap! Ultra bang for my buck... I don't see myself paying more than 50$..
is there anything out there for my needs or should I just stick with that old 500gb HD?

Tx in advance

stick with the old drive for now and save up for an SSD, your not going to get very much hard drive with $50 since hard drive prices are still sorta high

save up like $120-$160 for a good 120gb ssd for your boot drive, and use your old hdd for storage and such, it will be a pretty big boost in performance.

I don't see myself payin 120$ for 120Gb while I could get 2Tb for 100$!!
I don't think the increase in performance is nowhere near worth the money!!
But it kindo sucks the prices aren't getting lower ;(
Once my 500Gb is full, I guess I'll try to find some 1Tb or something
