I will be replacing my 160 HD. I am looking to place in bigger HD in my Hp a475c. I just don't know which brand would be best to work with my system. I also would like to know how much memory is to much. I have a open slot and can upgrade to 2gb. I have 512 now . Im thinking atleast a 3or 400 Hd with 1 gb of memory. What do you guys think?

Thanks Terry

There is no such thing as "to much". It all depends on what you are doing, if a serious gamer the more the merrier, also if running intensive applications. Go with as much as you can afford.

Actually that's not quite true, a 32bit OS will only recognize 3.5GB of RAM, the rest is superfluous.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
