yeah, my dad told me the exact same thing. I already have it though so it is what it is.
I also already have DVI cables laying around the house, wanted to try HDMI since I've never used it with computers before. Figured it'd look a bit better
I saw that PSU too, haven't heard anything about XFX so wasn't sure how it is. It's also kinda ugly too but my case wont have a window so it doesn't matter.
Was going with the F3 but it's sold out, I'm not buying the HDD till about mid January just to see if they get anymore in stock. If not I'll get the WD. That Seagate seems to fail a lot from what I've been reading.
