    hi guys,
    I have an amd athlon 64 3000+ system with 160gb seagate hdd 512 mb ram,pinnacle tv tuner card on asus a8v-vx motherboard having sony dvd-rw.
    I have around 15000 at hand and want to buy these things:-
    1)music player:-maximum capcity possible.i am thinking of ipod or such .woyld really like 30 gb.i dont need video playback.good enough quality would do.i am no audiophile.
    2)graphics card:-a temporary setup till direct10 comes.it should just b enough to play all latest games maybe at low settings,frame rates be damned.
    3)Ram:-my system is awfully slow,despite not that much load.i am planning another 1 gb addition.
    4)racing wheel:-maybe the cheapest possible,may not be branded even.
    Please help me how to go about buying all this and how to divide my budget.I know this mihgt be tough but i can leave out the graphics card/ram/wheel.pls try to fit in around 15000.
    Thanking You.
    Yours Sincerely,
    ranjodh Dhaliwal,

    All....I know is 'bout the ram and gfx card!

    For ram get another 512MB stick......

    For graphics card, u can get a 7300GS for 4k-4.5k.....or a 7600GS for 8k.....
    But I don't think u will wanna spend so much on the gfx card....coz u wanna get a nice mp3 player and other stuff.....
    But a 7300GS would be good...

    shhhh!!!!! on a sniper point
    Get the ipod video..its of 30gb nd 60gb. Its a hell lots of space if u gonna store only mp3s nd no mp4s.
    as bour ram tell if u r usin ur current 512 in dual channel. if then get another 2x512 nd insert in the second set of slots to add them in those existing 2 channels.

    As bout g card get the 7300GS for 4k[refer india sites like techmirchi.com] or the 7300GT for 5k or even the 7600GS for 7~8k.
    But as per ur description its the 7300GS which suits u. Decent one till DX10.

    Racing wheels: get one from Logitech. The basic one has rumble feedback nd lots of switch. gr8 user satisfaction worldwide. Its around 4k.
