    VISTA and DirectX 10 READY???

    Samsung first to ship hybrid hard drives

    the extra cache is also from what i have read about these drives used to store the MBR and such, so the drive dosnt have to check the MBR with slow seek/read times, properly done a 4200 or 5400rpm hybrid drive could be as fast as a 7200 or possably even 10k rpm drive, alot of the time on hdd is...

    ordering a 7600GT from Newegg

    watts check ur pm's my advice is, if you are still on the system in your system specs, spend the $ on a board/chip/ram combo like i listed insted of a 7600gt, in the long run it will be a better investment, the p4 2.4+esc board+ddr333 is really gonna hamper your perf, the p4 is the biggist...
