    If you want a good fast HD and have the $'s go the WD 120gb special edition, 8mb buffer.
    The rast looks pretty good :thumb:

    He should be; you're current choice sucks.

    Question: Why in the world would you put together a totally Kick-Ass rig and then slow the whole thing down with a crap hard drive? Just the 5400 RPM spindle speed alone will slow down the entire system! Get something that is large and can still add to the performance level of your new toy.

    Besides, with hard drives as cheap as they are nowadays, you can just add more later on if you have the need for a greater amount of storage space.

    Wiggo was on the mark with his comment about the Special Edition of WD drives. Their current crop goes to 120GB each and they also have an 8MB cache built in. They are truly speed demons and are setting benchmarking records all over the place.

    Finally, Maxtor has been having some serious quality/reliability issues of late and really shouldn't be considered too seriously at the moment.

    if you get a tdk, compusa has one with rebate for like 49.99, hurry..lol, thats if your in the states though

    that athlon is .13 right? make sure you get .13 and watch the steppings too

    i wouldn't get wd or maxtor or ibm, wd gay gay hds, they die just like ibms and maxtors are just cr*p try the seagate barracuda v, it has sATA

    hmm, why get a ti4600, just get a good ti4200 and o/c it, they run for like a hundred cheaper

    and i think your prices are a bit high lol..why get a coolmaster? just get aluminum case like lianli and mod it

    what is AOC? lol =P

    speakers try the logitech series, they are pretty cheap and good

    get the antec trupower, and i doubt you'll need THAT much wattage..like 400 is decent
