More about what
  1. That's an extremely solid rig.

    The only thing I would change would be the HDD. I would go with a serial(S)-ATA drive. They are a little more, but they are also faster, albeit not much, and have thinner cables for better airflow. There might be another benefit I'm forgetting.

    And also do some research on Gigacube if you haven't already. Never heard of that manufacturer.

  2. this serial(S)-ATA drive is way too expensive for me..
    and i'll probebly round all the cables anyway.
    about Gigacube, this company is a small part of Gigabyte.. a little better quality.
    here's a link to the manufactor website : http://www.gigacube.com.tw/
    and to the 9800Pro page : http://www.gigacube.com.tw/products/r9800pro.htm
  3. Let's make that url into a clickable link, shall we ...

  4. They can also have longer cables, because they are far less succeptible to EMI within your case.

    S-ATA actually isn't that much more. I have two Seagate 160GB S-ATA drives in RAID-0, and it's bloody fast and quiet. Man, it's nice having a 300gb hdd full of music, movies, and mammaries ;-)
