  1. I'd drop the Caviar Blue and go for the Samsung Spinpoint F3 1 TB. It's faster. Other than that, the build looks pretty good.

    EDIT: Just to be sure, what's your budget? Is this build right at your budget limit?
  2. ^ +1 for the Spinpoint F3

    Build looks great.

    my budget is approx $1200 australian dollars,i have gone a bit over budget but thats ok,its better to get good hardware i think,even if it costs a bit more..i will take a look at the samsung HD..thanks
  4. I like every thing expect for the hard drive. Look into a ssd just for windows and and western digital caviar black 1.tb as the main drive. Other wise your build looks good.

    ahh ok,do you mean i should run my operating system on the ssd drive and also my games and other software on the same drive
  6. Yes I do, The boot time will be much faster, and windows will be more responsive. This will cost a little more though.
