ASUS P8P67 Deluxe REV3.0 ATX LGA1155 P67 3PCI-E16 2PCI-E1 2PCI Sandy Bridge B3 Motherboard

Intel Core i7 2600K Quad Core Unlocked Hyperthreading Processor LGA1155 3.4GHZ Sandy Bridge 8MB

Corsair CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 Vengeance 8GB 2X4GB DDR3-1600 CL9-9-9-24 Dual Channel Memory Kit

OCR SSD Vertex 2 240gb
Suggestions on a HDD that's quiet?

  1. the 6950(2gb) simply rules in most cost/performance ratios right now.....

    The Samsung F3 drives are high performing/low cost 1 TB drives.....
  2. thanks for the suggestions. i'll check them out.
  3. I'd also recommend both the 6950 2GB and the Samsung F3s.

    The 6950 has very nice triple monitor support right out of the box. You'd need 2 Nvidia cards to get 2 monitors, which was slightly frustrating...
