Default Re: Ok guys...

hmm... Case is based on ur preference really.. which is why i didn't really recommend one, same with the HD, depending on how much HD space u needed.. get a smaller or bigger HD

I do not accept help requests and/or deleted threads/complaints by PM, Profile or IM/Email. Just ask on the forums! Also, I do have Lockerz invites if you want them, feel free to PM me your email if you want one :0

If I help you, or you just like what I said, rep me by clicking the
or under my avatar; it helps me know that my advice actually helped you.

.. But things don't go according to plan! My Actual Rig, 2009:

Vernongs right in that its your personal choice what case/HD to get.

But some good models to look for for hard drives are:

Samsung spinpoint
Seagate 7200.11
Western Digital


Antec (900, P182)
Coolermaster (stacker 831/2, CM690)
Gigabyte (aurura)

Those are just some manufacturers/models, but I found it helpful if I had some things to base my choices off when I was picking parts. So hope it helps

*edit* screw it I'm always messing up which way it goes.
