    what to get???

    Well, I finally decided to get my computer something for the new millenium but I'm not sure what...
    since we're in the peripherals section, plz feel free to suggest any good hardware I should buy in the range $100-$200US


    computer specs:

    AMD K6-2 350Mhz
    64MB SDRAM (PC100)
    Voodoo3 2000 PCI
    ASUS P5A-B Super 7 mobo
    ALi Aladdin V AGPset
    creative somethin soundcard (don't mind that)
    2GB Cheetah (i think) hard drive
    24x Mitsumi CDROM drive
    15" monitor (1024x768 at 56hz, max 85hz at 640x480)
    hp printer (don't mind that either)

    so what do u think, new hard drive or cdrw or scanner, or monitor, etc...

    thanx

    Your specs are already quite good... the only thing to me that doesn't seem to fit the bill is the 15" monitor.

    If you look hard enough, I'm sure you'll be able to get a decent 19" monitor. Besides, what do you stare into when you're on the computer?

    Monitors are hell important and upgrading that I think will make you happiest!

    Thanks guys for the suggestions about the mouses and more memory, but the three most things that I wanted to get were a hard drive, a monitor or a cdrw, but since no one made any suggestions about a hard drive or a cdrw, then a monitor would be a the best choice to buy???

    Good choice.

    Let me know what you end up with so I can drool and stay jealous for the next six months.
