Hi guys,

I am looking to put together a new system for my brother. He is interested in playing games and a bit of video editing. I am working off a budget of approximately £1400 to £1500

This is what i am looking at getting him, your opinions would be appreciated.

Antec 902 Nine Hundred Two Ultimate Gaming Case
Asus Rampage II Extreme Intel X58 Motherboard
Intel i7 920 2.66Mhz
Corsair XMS3 6Gb (3x2Gb) 1600Mhz
Two Western Digital Raptors x 150Gb (Raid-0)
XFX Radeon HD 5870 1024MB GDDR5 GPU
Corsair TX 750W SLI Compliant PSU

looks good, but i wouldnt get the raptors, the samsung F3 outperforms them in sequential transfer rates which is what matters in most apps, and the F3s are bigger and a hell of a lot cheaper. But for the price of the two raptors you can probably get an SSD instead which will perform significantly better and get a HDD as a larger primary storage.

Thanks Hunter, you learn something new every day!! I had no idea the F3's were that fast!
I will definitely consider them.
