Unless you really want to save the squirrels and bears, get the Caviar black. I have several green drives that are slow a crap. The black drives noticeably quicker in seeking and throughput.

It will be the best extra £10 you ever spent. I like everything else. Why have all that memory, a fast chip, 2 gpus, and then an ECO drive to fuel them. LOL

what do u think about the PSU some people have told me i would need at least 950w PSU just to power the GPU's but when i did a research on the power consumption it said 331 watts per gpu

It couldn't hurt to get a better PSU. If you don't overclock, you may be fine. But if you tweak crap like me, you may want to upgrade. Besides, what is the point of getting a BE processor if you don't turn the dial up. Same goes for the 6870's.

The caviar green drives are total greenwashing. They save like two watts of power or something.
