an ATI 3870 is what?
A faster 3d card.....LOOAAADS better than the 8600GT, which is junk.

And no you can't run your current card and another one together.

Hitachi make excellent drives as well....the quality is right up there with seagate.

And if you don't even know what a 3d card is then I'm starting to question your ability to build a PC at this point. I think you need to do some more research first.

Yes, Hitachi drives are great. The only HD manufacturer that I would question is Maxtor. I dont know abot them now that Seagate bought them though.

I would go with a 3850 over a 3870 as I think that with a 3870, the rest of the system would be a bit of a bottleneck.

Youve never heard of ATi? Google is your friend.
