Here is the finalized part list for the rig i'm going to build. Just wondering if you guys could look it over just to make sure there aren't any problems (compatibility issues, etc.). Thanks in advance
Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -
Assuming you are in to far more complex things than gaming then it is fine, otherwise the i7 980 is a massive overspend for no gaming real gaming improvements. I debate whether the 6gb/s HDD is worth getting over the Samsung Spinpoint F3 3gb/s though.
I wouldn't say fanboys, I doubt many care what the actual HDD brand is (unlike Nvidia vs ATI fanboys) it just so happens that currently the Samsung F3 and the Seagate are the 2 best HDDs out there. The extra cash for a 6gb/s HDD is debatable at the moment because there is not really any performance gains over a good quality 3gb/s right now
just wanted to thank everyone who replied. def going to go with the samsung drive. still deciding between HAF X and 800D. i really like the HAF, but it has a bit more of an aggressive look than i'm going for.
