Re: Would this build work?
It will work.. But, yha the green drives shut down to save power, and write abit slower. Great as storage drive but bad as OS drive.
Now.. For the sparkle psu... I'd get something newer. This psu was out in '96, and is really a FSP which are quite good. This model was a highly recommended psu a few yrs ago, but for todays setups it not that great anymore, especially with only a 70% effeciency.
Like i said you'll work just fine, but it can be improved.
You might want to try builfding at ncix. com then using the pricematch feature to get the absolute lowesgt of any onlne shop in canada. You should beable to recop the shipping ncix has and direct canada doesnt.
I use shopbot.ca to search and discount.
