    I have a 5 year old Gateway performance 500 (500MHz Pent 3, Windows 98SE) with a 13GB hard drive of which I only have 4GB left. Buying a new unit is not option for at least a year. I am going to add 256ram of memory to my 128(2 slots left). Tomorrow I go live with DSL and I know I will soon need more space. Should I add a internal hard drive or a 40-60GB external USB2 that I could also add to my next pc. I am worried with the internal of failures or glitches.
    Thanks

    I would just replace the internal drive, Dan. Your 13gb is probably a little slow compared to modern units.

    I agree--Plus, when you finally get your new pc, you can put the new one in as a secondary drive.
