    i'd say wasting money(no offence).just keep the ram you have now and next time you upgrade your ram,you can change all 4 at once.

    I agree, you should probably just live with it and keep em as is.

    Although, you do have a windowed case and since Tracers aren't a whole lot more expensive than regular Ballistix these days, you may want to consider it regardless of the obvious.

    From a Tracer owner.

    YES

    Tracer is very nice, and the number one reason is. When your system locks the leds stop moving. Plus it looks very very cool:).

    Basically you want to spend 100 AUS for LEDs. You might want to think about that and direct your money to something that might make a difference.

    Looking at your specs, there really isn't much you could do other than go with a quad core cpu. Given the little amount of good it'll do versus your current CPU and taking into consideration that very little truley uses quad technology these days, you might just as well upgrade the memory to the Tracers. :ohwell:

    Looking at your rig I'd say the money isn't a massive issue for you- so why not? If you can afford it go for it.:D

    humm if it really bugs you than get it but I think your comp should look great as is. though thats up to you.

    you could put the $100 into a savings fund for retirment! think retirment man! lol I know it sounds off but its the truth.. every little bit you can put into a retirment fund now will grow over the nexted 40 years of your life! or you could just start a fund to buy a car elc.. how old are you? are you doing the job you plan on for the rest of your life? atm I need to get my life going eg save funds so I can eventually get some education :O well atm Im saving to take some courses to go work on the oil rigs to save $$ for school.. eg. buy a car elc :rockout: oil rigs pay big bucks.

    Live OR Die; You can always upgrade my rig for that $100! :p

    On a serious note, maybe put that $100 to good use and put it towards a watercooled setup if your still pondering something for the rig.

    you can use the 100 bucks to go quad core and improve your wc system.

    or if you really wanna upgade the memory get 2 sticks of 2 gigs ea rather then 4 sticks of 1 g ea, its less strain on the nb and the memory runs faster when all the slots aren't full.

    Probably better to get a block for the graphics card, might be the difference between another dead graphics card, and one that works until you upgrade again next year :p

    I second that ripper.

    Get the waterblock now, get the quad core little bit later. That's if you don't have the itch to move over now. But then again that e6850 is darn good chip!
