Thanks for all replys.
What is RAID and If i update the bios on the mobo can i put the quad-cores on it
1- You can't do that wit htwo different drives, however, you can combine two same model and size drives for a RAID configuration. RAID stands for Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks. That allows to combine two drives into one big drive.
2-That depends on your chipset. You might need a BIOS flash too.

2. You'll most likely have to get a new motherboard. The stock motherboards from Dell, HP, etc usually don't have many features.
You'll be suprised that the brandd PCs can hold a lot of power, without these features.
