I already said it had 1 less pcie...im also not sure about the sata ports (but what does that really matter)...what do u mean my northbridge?

There is some talk about it being a bit buggy, but the 780I is also buggy.

well dont know saw it in another forum

wat is better to have 2 hdd (one that is over 7200RPM for the os i think to load up faster and one big 7200RPM for the programs) or just have a big 7200RPM HDD liek the seagate 7200.11

unless your getting like a 15k hdd for the os (which are quite expensive then no, just get a 7200.11 500gb and have your stuff and os on it. Having the os on a 10k Raptor only increases the load speed by like 2 seconds so it's not worth it.
