    btw guys, i went down to vivo and gave the different bodies a try. a bit shocked (but in a good sense), i realise my hands fits the xxxD best ha! the 7D is way out (i can't even grab the whole grip with my hand!) and the xxD (50D), is a bit awkward prolly because hands need to stretch a bit to grip properly. oh my, now my choices for a body upgrade is kind of weird if i'm to jump to a 500D isn't it? should i "believe" that i'll get used to the handling or i should forgo the thoughts of better specs for the handling?

    Grip may be big but if the feel is comfortable then it should be ok.

    xxxD jump to xxD or xD, the most notable change is the grip feel bcos it's bigger and much more room to manoeuvre for the controls.

    Actually, I think if you are able to get used to 7D. That will be the best. To me, 500D and 50D like not huge difference in performance but quite a difference in the price.

    Hai, i was trying very hard to hold the 7D comfortably but its really quite a huge machine (for my hands! argh). Even when i stretched my palm, can't hold the grip properly.. kindof sad actually. but the "steadiness" is definitely there, oh i love the shutter sound and the shutter button also! hai.

    As for the 50D, its kind of in between.. Stretch my palm, still can grip quite ok, but note : stretch needed. Because of the close performance/function upgrades with the 500D, i was even contemplating just getting the 500D and recycle every accessories from my 450D! Then invest in lenses. argh, but lenses for me can wait while i would want to upgraade the body first. hai. how how.

    Currently, the specs is lidat and I dun want to spend too much as eventually I want to get an iMac.

    AMD Athlon AM2 4600 (Dual-Core)
    Asus M2N-E SLi
    Kingston 1GB DDR 667Mhz
    nvidia 7600GT 512MB
    160GB HDD
    16x DVD-RW
    19" Samsung widescreen
    430W PSU

    Budget around $400 for the bold parts to be changed.

    Looking at

    1. Team Elite 4GB (2x2GB) Kit DDR2-800 or Kingston HyperX 4GB (2x2GB) Kit DDR2-800
    2. XFX/Powercolor HD5750 1GB DDR5 or MSI 9800GT 1GB HDMI
    3. Andyson 530W PSU

    Any recommendations boh?

    Aye, I dunnit to be recommend a shop cos' my uncle works in SLS, one of the shops.
    Unless required, any DDRII 800 RAM will do. Andyson 530W PSU at $69.

    As for the graphics card, what do you intend to do with it? If you wanna use it for acceleration in CS4, just opt for the basic 9800GT will do. Can save you quite an amount.

    Got to agree that it is pretty big, but you should give it another try when you are at Vivo.

    I need it for 3d rendering in 3ds Max, Maya, Zbrush & Cinema4D plus OpenGL acceleration in CS4.

    9800GT and the new HD5750 same price wor. Haha!

    And ya, for the PSU, was thinking of Andyson or Vantec but after read reviews that Vantec is not energy-conserving enough, I rather go for the 88% eff Andyson. Then suddenly someone in HWZ pop up with Aerocool. What do you think about Aerocool? Pretty good reviews on it wor.
