    Hi Bro,
    I need someone help to know this.
    My PC running with Windows XP, (HDD-80GB, RAM-265MB, Motherboard- ASRock/Prescott800/DDR400).
    I want to upgrade HDD and RAM to install Windows 7 32bit.
    Please suggest me which is compatible for RAM and HDD.
    Thanks,
    ZawMyo

    Your hard drive probably has an IDE connector. It will be tough to find a new one in a big box store nowadays. Try a used computer store for that.

    You can still buy IDE hard drives but they are usually twice as expensive as SATA drives, with a 32 bit operating system you can only use a Max of 4GB ram. It is probably not worth spending the money on when you can get a refurbished dell for $200 . If you get a refurbished, make sure it is the MT (Mini tower) and not the SFF (small form factor) and stay away from HP/Compact in my opinion.
