Default My build, with a few questions

I am ordering the rest of my stuff and wanted some final thoughts on what I am getting. I am going with an AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ Manchester for the processor and a ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe for the MB. Some OCZ 2GB ram. Going with the EVGA 7800GTX for the video card. I am un sure on what harddrives I want. Maybe you guys can help me select a couple out. I want at least 250-300 gig ea. I was looking at the Maxtor MaXLine Plus series, but I am unsure. I would like to go ahead and get some round cables from the start but don't know what lenght to get. I have this case if it helps. Well thats about it, thanks for any help.

Which raptors are you refering to? Will the ata150's work with my setup? Anyone know about what length cables and which ones I need to get?
Thanks

raptors full name: Western digital raptors sata hard drive 7200 rpm **only 10k rpm**

yes definately get at least one raptor with those specs because they will appreciate the responsiveness and transfer rates. for storage i would get another western digital but sataII and 250 - 300gb with 16mb cache, google for some reviews but if you prefer another brand (maxtor) there isnt anything wrong with em
