I only took a quick look over it, but I HATE Maxtor... it might just be me but I always have had a problem with it. I personally think Western Digital is the best.

Personally i would recommend the Logitech MX518 over the diamondback, simply for the fact that it has its on the fly sensitivity settings hardcoded, therefore you dont have to install software with the mouse unlike the diamondback, also its more ergonomic, just feels better although its slightly heavier.

I would also recommend the Zboard, I use it, and its improved my gaming alot over standard keyboard.

WD & Seagate are basically neck and neck performance-wise. However, the WDs don't have NCQ and the Seagates are known to be an unoticeable bit more quiet.

well the BFG comes factory overclocked, and its safe as apposed to overclocking yourself, but the software package that comes with it prolly wont be that great but who cares right. Plus XFX is ****e so...............

xfx customer support is horrible. Their cards are half decent esp after they got the fan thing fixed and none of their cards are doa that much anymore.
