You won't see a noticeable difference. I like EVGAs, because of their warranty, but XFX is getting better at it.

lol, you ask him, not me. It was his decision to go for 80gb. I suggested a 160gb, in the list that I put up before. But he changed it

Pretty easily, actually. I am running an 80gig.

@ acidnine, don't worry about an after-market CPU cooler. That CPU comes with a cooler that will work just fine for you, unless you plan on getting into some serious overclocking. You can always replace the stock cooler later.

If he is getting the OEM 3600 then he will need a cooler because it doesn't come with one.
