Either one is fine. It is your choice. You gotta think for yourself once in a while around here.

Its a good idea to do because its relatively cheap and makes your comp a lot faster. Btw, why only 250 GB HD? would cost little to upgrade that too a 500GB or a 750GB.
i was thinking about that but i wasnt quite sure if i wanted to do that or not but i think i'll go with WD's 750 10k RPM drive

even if i have just one drive is RAID helpful?

you need more than run drive to run RAID config, besides your mobo doesn't support it.

That CPU is fine.. what is wrong with it..?
It overclocks very well, and is definitely not going to hold his computer back in any way..

That CPU is actually a better overclocker than those you recommended.
