i am making myself a new computer some time soon, this is what i came up with as an idea
Antec p180 case
ASUS a8n SLI-premium motherboard
ASUS extreme 7800gtx, 256mb.
AMD Athlon 64 x2 3800+ cpu
Antec Neo-HE 500w PSU
OCZ pc2300 platinum ram 2x1012mb
SONY DRU000A CD/DVD-RW
SONY SONY DDU161288B DVD drive
WD 74gb Raptor, 10,000rpm HDD
Seagate 250gb Barracuda HDD
a few questions, is there much benifit from the additional rpm on the raptor? i am in two minds whether or not to keep it. do the benifits outweigh the price?
also, what cooling would be necsissary?
i am making this from australia, so most likely my prices and availibility of parts will differ from yours. i am using www.i-tech.com
to buy the peices.
what do you think?
