HDD for new build Tags: New Build Hard Drives New Build Systems Product Last response: November 25, 2011 4:53 AM in Systems Share natebot88 November 25, 2011 2:56:36 AM Hey all- Been planning a new build and I need a 500gb> HDD paired with my Kingston 120gb SSD for a new build. Here are the planned specs: CPU- Core i5 2500k 199$ Motherboard- Asus Maximus Gene-Z Z68 169$ GPU- EVGA Nvidia GeForce GTX 580 499$ RAM- G.Skill Ripjaws X Series Model # F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL 29$ CD Drive- ASUS DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS 19$ PSU- SeaSonic X750 Gold 109$ Case- Antec 900 Black Steel ATX Mid Tower $89 TOTAL PRICE- 1113$ EXCLUDING HDD (That list came straight from a document so disregard the pricing) Any thoughts? I'd prefer Western Digital because I've heard they are VERY reliable and the best HDD company out there. Pricing isn't too much a problem but 100$ or less is a nice price range for me. Many thanks!
