Definitely would need to upgrade that video card. That G210 just won't cut the mustard when it comes to gaming.

I havent taken the plunge on SSD yet. How are they heat wise, I had read that they can get pretty toasty if not well vented.

true, they are also very good for gaming purposes, due to the very fast read times SSD are capable of, too bad they cost an arm and a leg, cant wait for prices to go down. i cannot justify the switch over from a run of the mill 500gb sata until then.

i assume like most tech these days SSD will get bigger and better and eventaully be industry standard and conventional HDD will faze out.

check out the seagate momentus xt 500GB model. they have a newer 750GB version out as well.



the 500 is around $100 on newegg and is a good alternative.

I have the awesome pleasure of having TWC as an ISP. Before i moved i had no problem with my modem/routers wifi strength,when the technician came out to run cables etc in the new home he switched it for a Ubee. Ever since my wifi signal is so poor for friends devices that come to visit, have switched it 3x now only to have the same result. I don't know a lot about routers so could someone please give me a suggestion as to what a good one is. Budget is roughly 250 Us dollars
