Graphics Card And Hard Drive
Graphics Card: Sapphire 100315L Radeon HD 6850 1 GB
The Radeon HD 6850 1 GB in our previous build was both stable and quiet, but it failed to impress us with regard to its overclocking headroom. Having a choice between two reference-clocked models at $170, we decided to take another look at the Sapphire 100315L.
Hard Drive: Seagate Barracuda ST3500413AS 500 GB
Although our selected motherboard is limited to SATA 3Gb/s, this Seagate Barracuda ST3500413AS still offers 500 GB of storage capacity and 16 MB of cache at the same low $40 price tag paid for a smaller 320 GB drive.
