i'm so close to building this comp i can taste it! however, there are two things i have yet to decide on. How many Hard drives i want in raid 0, and the sound card.
I was thinking of just hooking up two WD 250GB caviar in raid 0 with a 750gb as storage, but i have had many people telling me that adding more Hard drives to that config will give me significant performance boost. Now, i'm the kind of person who will notice that extra 4-8 seconds of increased load time and have no problem spending the extra 100$ to make it happen.
2nd is the sound card, i will be playing a lot of games, mostly FPS, so i want a top of the line sound card with an I/O front panel. I've heard a lot of people recomend the fatality pro, and many others bash it. I need a card that can make my music sound amazing as well as my games, i just dont know the diff between half the creative cards on the market :S
Once i get these two things sorted out, i'll be mint
