Hi,

I have about $100 to spend on my gaming rig and am torn between getting 4gb more of RAM or a new case. I currently have a Raidmax Smilodon that is 3 years old. While it works perfectly fine, I wouldn't mind having a newer case with better airflow that makes cable management easier. So if you were me would you use the $100 for more memory or a new case? Here are my specs:

Gigabyte GA-MA790GPT-UD3H
AMD Phenom II 945
4gb RAM
2x ATI 5770
Win 7 64 bit

Thanks!!!!

RAM will improve performance, a Case will improve aesthetics (and maybe cooling).

Pick one. Personally, I'd go RAM.

Go for a case and a 4/8Gb zipdrive,
New case, airflow C.management etc,
Readyboost on Win7 lets you use flashdrives as ram, just dedicate the whole drive to it and leave in there,
just my humble,

8gigs of ram is overkill for gaming, 4gb is plenty i would get a new case and when games get more demanding and so on i would get more ram, so go for a new case
