  1. looks good, I would get the WD 640 hard drive instead of the seagate 500.
  2. Okay , sounds good. Is a raptor HD worth the money or is it more for high end processing and 3D programs?
  3. Raptor in my opinion isn't worth the price plus less space.
  4. Shadow said it all.

    Nice build you got there. Get the WD640 like Shadow says.
  5. it is okay
  6. The raptor is not worth the extra cash.
  7. Thanks for all the help, went with a WD650. Just waitin on my parts :)
