More about does build work
  1. Yes it is all compatible.

    I don't think the WD 1TB FEAX is worth ~$30 over the Samsung Spinpoint, as in all the tests I've seen the Samsung is typically faster, quieter and cooler than the WD.

    I think the Silverstone edges the Antec because of longer cables, fully modular and higher efficiency.
  2. As someone who owns a setup with 5850 in crossfire I don't know if I'd buy one of those at this time for a new build. Staying with the current generation of cards, even if technically less powerful, will give you better tesselation support and measureably better crossfire/SLI scalability.

    Don't get me wrong: I'm extremely happy with my setup now that it's more or less working, but I would stick with current gen if building from new.
