If you want to give me $495 for a Seagate Cheetah 73.4GB 15K SCSI hard drive, I would be happy to take it. I had a limited budget, I bought my computer parts with money I earned for graduation. If you would have done it different, I respect that, and I respect your opinion. But you need to realize that not everybody can afford a SCSI that has decent capacity. I got the best I could with the money that I had available. If I was really getting the fastest components available, I would have spent 5 or 6K on parts, got an FX-53 with 2GB Corsair Extreme Series memory, that 73.4GB Cheetah, liquid cooling, etc. Next, are you are going to go harrassing the little guy who builds a rig for only $1000?
