    Hey guys,

    I have an MDD dp 1gig. I need to upgrade the thing, but I’m photographer and not all that savvy on the computer upgrade thing. I want to install another internal hard drive (Seagate 300 gig)(will I be able to use the full 300?) for media storage and increase the ram from 256mb to 1.25gig by adding 2-512mb sticks(Kingston pc2700). Are there any tutorials on hard drive and memory installation for this machine on the web. Can I upgrade the video card from the 9000 and would it be worth it? I work with adobe suite, macromedia suite and Nikon capture a lot if that helps. Thanks

    Apple has tutorials on how to do both, and yes, it will recognize all of the hard drive space. The instructions on how to do so may even be in the manual that came with the computer.

    All the upgrades are fairly straight forward so you shouldn't have much trouble. Those cases are nice and accessable.

    Also, you can upgrade the video card. The best one without being overkill would probably be a Radeon 9600 that you can find at OWC.
