That's the thing.. then my warrenty voids, so I saw this as a nice alternative.

I can't see how you'd void the warranty. How else would you add more RAM, a new video card, or another HDD?

Opening up the computer should not void your warranty.

The PC was prebuilt from a company here in Norway and has a 3 year warranty.. I thought if you actually opened the case those 3 years were gone. The one I'm sitting on now had those check stickers on the case which breaks. Maybe there's regulations difference between brand PC and built-it-for-you PC's, i need to check that..
