Hello, So I have a Gateway GM5632e, One of the hard drives are failing, and im looking to bring the hardware up to date fully when replacing, I have sufficient memory 6 gigs, updates, as well as a Radeion HD 6750 updated graphics card. Any ideas on processors, hard-drives, power supply? Pretty much anything that will make the computer run like a gem, and that wont cost the price of a newer computer.
