The video card, ram, power supply, case, and motherboard are probably set right now. Thinking about changing the hdd and dvd drive to something more affordable without losing much performance. I never use more than 100gb or so hdd and the dvd drive would only be used for installing windows(don't really care too much about usb).

Seagate Barracuda? is it any good? I've heard a lot of bad reviews about it on Newegg--how it would die after a few months and such.

If you could purchase the i5 2400 and 6950 1GB off the link I posted that'd be great! It'll support my website and bring me one step closer to an upgrade. If you're scared, don't be. Amazon sells and fulfills the product. I'm just like a salesman so I get some commission. If you don't though I understand.

@shinobi eBusinessPlace? I usually buy the ones that has the Free with Super Saver Shipping thing by Amazon. Or do I just click on the links provided and click add to cart?

@wenqi, nothing is wrong with the samsung in my opinion, but I never use pass 100gb or so and I would like something cheaper without losing performance.

also, newegg is totally fine if there's something cheaper and comparable to the current build I have planned.

oh, and I was wondering, why the radeon 6950 over the gtx ti 560 when they both cost the same? Would the msi gtx ti 560 twin frozr be any better?

Wenqi, the Samsung may be fast, but asdf won't notice it. Plus he doesn't need the 1TB, might as well save by getting a cheaper drive.

You just click on the links provided and add to cart. Amazon sells and ships em!

The 6950 performs a bit better over the 560 ti at stock, the 560 Ti Twin Frozr OC would perform a little better, but overall I still would stick to the 6950 since it performs close to the 560 Ti TF OC, which is why it is recommended by THG
