  1. Best answer
    for the Hard drive, as 90% of toms would say "get a 1tb spinpoint F3 or even the 500gb" its the best drive out for the money.

    I have the COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus and its very good and cool, nice and cheap as well.
  2. Thanks for the advice, first post reflects the change.
