Your build looks solid.

If it were me, I'd switch out the 2 HDD for one Western Digital 640 GB HDD great performance and price.

Good luck.

thanks all, eventually i'll get a 640 GB and transfer all the files from the 250 GB, but as for now, the 250 GB will work just fine.

So you'd rather go with an old, slower HD with less than half the capacity? The 640GB drive is only an extra $14. I guess that's your choice, but it seems a little strange. Do you already have the 250GB drive or something?

yeah, have the drive in my old AMD rig...
