1 - Ok, I'm looking to buy a 500gb HDD.
I want something very quiet and quick.
I saw these two:http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B001IKKCLS/ref=nosim/?tag=hotukdeals-21http://www.amazon.co.uk/Western-Digital-Caviar-Internal-OEM/dp/B000Q82PIQ/ref=pd_cp_ce_2
Very similar in price and spec so not sure which of the two are better, or if I should go for something else.
Reason I am buying is my PC currently, my Seagate 80gb which is quite old is making a lot of noise, hissing sounds. I'm sick of it, it's giving me a headache so £35 or so for a huge upgrade isn't expensive!
Does anyone have any advice?
2 - Whilst am on the thread (and am gonna edit the title), I should probably upgrade my RAM. Currently have 2x1gb of PC2-6400 DDR2 RAM. Does anyone have any advice on what to look for for going from 2gb to 4gb and indeed, is it worth it?
My motherboard is ASUS M2N-MX SE if that helps for any advice.
I am also (still) using Windows XP Pro 32-bit. Considering going to Windows 7.
