Default I want better gameplay. And a hard drive question.

Alright, I just added a Radeon 9800 Pro to my system, and it greatly improved NFS Most Wanted, but I want more.

I have an Athlon 2400 XP running at 1.9ghz, 512mb RAM, and a old 30gb hard drive with about 4gb space left. I can't tell you much about the mobo, all I know is that it has 2 DDR and 2 SD slots on it, and I was told it's a pretty decent mobo. What do you guys think is my weakest link?

I had a friend tell me about slaving hard drives. What is involved in this? Is it recommended? I just thought about buying another cheap one and putting them together, but I have no idea what's involved.

Thanks for the help.

Slaving is basically changing the jumpers from Master to Slave...this way you can still use the 30gb hard drive and the new one you buy...You keep your 30gb hd as master get the new one and keep it as the slave...no formating or anything your good too go...Uhh your weakest point yuor system isnt that bad..try to go for 1gb of ram that really will help you out a lot!
