More about will 2000 gaming work
  1. Try to get a Antec case and Antec PSU combo, save some cash. Also i would get a 7200.12 1tb of newegg, it on a "Shellshocker" sale. Also, you should wait a day untill the i7-930 luanches, since it's going to be luanched at i7-920 prices, it should lower the price of the entire intell lineup, and maybe even AMDs offerings.
  2. Thanks I'm not buying it right now I'm still saving the money. I will look thos up when I get the time
  3. like he said wait for 930 but i'd make a few changes to your build

    undercuts your build with bigger case and power supply a board with USB 3.0 and sata 3 and a faster hard drive
  4. Looks like a good setup, bigger case, cheaper price
  5. Uh, consider this. Oh and haha, you missed the 10$ off Shelshocker sale by 1 day.

    I looked at some of the reviews, seems to be having failures. I don't need a drive with failures
  7. Any drive that sells as many copies as the 7200.12 will have a few fails. It not like over .1% of the drive fail. It's just that if someone buys a drive that fails, they are many times more likely to write a newegg reiwew than someone who bought it, and it work like it was expected to.

    Do u own one?
  9. No, but I own 3 7200.8s, and I've used Seagate my entire life, and so has my dad.

    Ok, but im going to need to do a little more research before I decide on it
  11. Seagate 7200.12 is FTW for gaming. The spinpoint f3 is good for music and stuff lie that. My 7200.8s have been nothing but awesome.
  12. quick update, I have decided to use the "XFX HD-587A-ZND9 Radeon HD 5870 (Cypress XT) 1GB XXX Edition 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported" instead of the other card i had in mind
