More about compare compatible
  1. Everything looks good for 800, but on the HDD definitely go WD caviar blue. 2 microprocessors make it one of the best, fastest HDD available IMO (not SSD)

    And it is just my opinion, as I am a brand man, if they treat me well I treat back, and always buy from someone who had great custom service and puts outstanding products, so if I were you I would go 650 corsair PSU. Less watts, less power usage. You get more bang for buck in long run. You will also have a longer lasting PSU, with QUALITY.

    Edit: WD caviar BLACK
  2. What's the difference between blue and green?
  3. Black has 2 processors.

    Black has 7200 RPMs to Greens 5400.

    In other words, Black is A LOT faster.
  4. Then is Black even faster? Since it has a 32MB cache like Green does?
  5. Black is fastest.


    Sorry, editing all my posts to reconfirm Black, its 12 am and I'm really tired :P

    Yes, I got confused. But it really is black.

    Black has two microprocessors, like blue.

    The thing that separates black from blue, is that black has 32mb cache, plus 2 motor mounts for added stability. Whereas blue has 16mb cache, and 1 motor mount.
  6. Anyone know about the compatibility?
  7. Do not get either of those psus, get Corsair Antec(not basiq) or OCZ.
