Hey everyone, this is my first build so I appreciate any input. This will be mostly a gaming computer where I'm hoping to play most games at decent settings on 1920 x 1200. Eventually I will get a second GPU for crossfire when the 4890 goes down in price.
I also want to eventually get a tuner card and have the computer function as a DVR, which brings me to my next question... How big of a hard drive should I be looking for since I will be recording shows? I also plan on having one partition for Ubuntu, and another partition for Windows 7 so plenty of storage on both would be nice. I've seen alot of 1TB drives selling for pretty good prices but there are a few reviews always mixed in saying the higher capacity drives seem to be less reliable. Is there alot of truth to this?
