T6212 upgrading - what to get?

by Sarre / April 15, 2005 6:47 AM PDT

I just today bought my T6212 package from Circuit City - played with it in the store and it was much faster than the old 1Ghz P3 laptop I've been using. Evryone on these forums says to upgrade, but I am confused as to what to get. I bought some memory online:

http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProductDesc.asp?description=20-141-423&depa=0

but it was suspiciously half the price of the PC3200 they had at Best Buy, tho as far as I could tell it is the same product for half the price. Was this good memory to get?

I guess I need a video card too? Very hard to find recos - any thoughts as to what is the best to get for around $150-200?

PLUS, I need to hook it up to my Wireless network - is PCI card or USB best for this, and if so, which one?

Thanks!

What is a T6212 package? In one instance you make it sound like a laptop. In another, mentioning cards, is it a desktop?

More information is needed please.
