Concerns:
HD: 500GB SATA 16MB / Cache (Western Digital)

Question:
Is it compatible with my build, or I need to buy a new hard disk?



Once again thank you for taking the time to help me out.

Forgot to mention that I have an hard-disk of 500GB SATA 16MB / Cache (Western Digital) . But I do not mind increasing space, but not necessary.

Thank you for taking the time to help me choose different specs. Although I am gonna stick with the dell monitor for design purpose. And as for SSD, I think I will stick with normal hard disks.

Other then that, I am going to consider the other parts since they're more cheaper. But I am not to sure about the OS.

All in all thank you for helping me out! I really appreciate it :)
