I'm trying to make my computer the fastest it can be. What upgrades would you suggest?
I'm getting a job soon, and I want to upgrade my computer to make it even faster than it is. It currently has an Intel Core 2 Quad Processor that clocks at 2.4 Gigs per core. I use an NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT Vid card, a 500GB SATA Drive, and 2GB of RAM. Plus, anyone know of good gaming peripherals, keyboards, mice, etc?

More RAM for sure. Your CPU's power is getting bottlenecked by lack of RAM. When the RAM is in, your next point would be to think about RAID arrays to speed up your Hard Drive(s). Then your graphics card if you are into hardcore gaming. The RAM will help, as well as RAID-0. Good luck!

If you upgrade your RAM, make sure to get Dual-Channel, and other than that, get a better graphics card, or go SLI.
