Went to best Buy to get the Barracuda's hopefully to get them at the price I mentioned, but the store was no longer accepting the $50 off $100 purchase coupons. Well I did walk away with the Corsair Vengeance 16GB (4x 4GB) DDR3 1600 for $45 and will keep the WD's 1TB each which i got for $53 each retail box. It's ok, I may have missed out on the 2TB Raid 0 config for $120, but by the time I fill these 1TB up with photos, I'll just snag a pair of 3TB beasties by then.
