Can you clarify this statement??
15k RPM Seagate Cheetah SCSI drive...... or 10k RPM Western Digital Raptor SATA
Any of the 750 Gig drives win here... soon to be 1 TB drives (1000 Gig)
I THINK what you meant, is that the 320 Gig drive have the best Cost/Space ratio, at about $0.26 per Gig, where most of the other drives are in the $0.30+ per gig range.
Seagate drives come with a 5 year warrenty. Perhaps OLDER drives came with 3 year warrenties, but anything you buy NEW today will come with 5 year.
As far as the built, it looks pretty good, but as menioned earlier, the Core2Duo is king of the crop.... I would have to guess that you are somewhat limited as far as budget goes, since you have picked one of the lower/median models of AM2 processors available.
What is the purpose of the PC? What will it be used for? I would guess that with that 7900, you will want it to do some pretty decent gaming. What is the TOTAL budget on this build.
