A few additional questions:
- do I need a heatsink?
- is the power supply suited to a potential future crossfire?
- if anybody can point to a PSU with some LEDs in it for a similar price, I'd like that!
Check "Direct Canada" also to save some $. Direct Canada and Best Direct are affiliated and a lot of times Direct Canada has Best Direct beat on prices. Both companies use the same address. Both offer Free Shipping... Best Direct free shipping on all orders over $80, and Direct Canada on all orders over $50.
Normally, I'd get the Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB over the WD Caviar Black because it's normally $25 cheaper. It matches in in benchmarks. But today, the Caviar black for $69 isn't too bad. The Spinpoint F3 1TB when you can find it for $55 or less can't be beat though.
Even with tons of fans, a good case should be silent. My Azza Solano 1000R (2x250mm fans, 3x120mm) is silent.
