I am going down the course of my build and I just ordered an intel e8400 wolfdale due to continuous and uproariously ecstatic recommendations...from every last person on the planet it seems.
Next, I am going to purchase hard drives. There seems to be quite a few formats. My last build was in 04 and things were simpler then.
I also just ordered this:
Newegg.com - ASUS Striker II Formula LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 780i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail
I had purchased a new (thought it was) MSI K9A2 platinum from a friend in need as I was initially going to go AMD, but the circu-pipe had a break in it. My pally graciously bought it back to try to RMA.
As I have decided to go with nvidia gpu since 8800gts (g92) are going down in price. I have also always had good luck with their driver/game support in the past.
Would I be correct in this HD format for this motherboard?:
Newegg.com - Seagate Barracuda ES.2 ST3250310NS 250GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA-300 Hard Drive - OEM
I was going to raid 0 two of these. The price seems great with all the capacity I need.
I have never heard of SATA-300 before. Was this called something else prior, or entirely new?
I thought hard on the WD raptor, but they seem to be falling behind the times like me.
I appreciate any help!
