I want a new HD too. Maybe another 40Gb would do me fine. I also want more RAM (256Mb more) and a new graphics card (Geforce 4 will do nicely).

I also saw a DVD re-writer for £199 today in the newspaper. I might have to get one of those too! Having all my roms on just a few disks would be great.

Now all I need is money...

No spare change, but a suggestion.
Do not get an external hard drive if you have space for one inside. Unless.....
A: You just gotta have one you need for portability.
B: You get one that makes use of IEEE 1394 (Firewire) technology.

Even firewire is substantially slower than EIDE. If don't really NEED an external, don't bother.

what the hell is ram buffer that comes with some of the hard drives? :D


A ram buffer is like a pre-writing area in the hard drive.
It's a chip used to store data that is going to be written to the hard drive.
It's just ensures steady flow of data, by buffering what needs to be written, while the data ahead of it IS being written.

Ever streamed music? The player willl buffer some of it before it starts playing, so you don't run out of data before the entire song has played.
Works on the same principle.
