Default Re: Help/Feedback on my new gaming rig 1800 budget

from what i have used and what i have read, theres little difference; but the samsung spinpoint f3 may be a tad better. the way prices are, i would go for whichever was cheapest between wd and samsung.

sean w's might be a bit high. $300 will be tough to pick 2 good monitors and keyboard and mice. i would go for any good priced keyboard, but a mouse with a couple extra buttons will probably be worth it. you also do not need an 850 watt psu. if you plan on sli'ing them, maybe, but i think it's more headaches than it is worth. youre just about always better off with a single more powerful card.

Intel Core i5-2500K
ASUS P8Z68-V LE LGA 1155 Intel Z68
Corsair 550VX
1Tb Samsung Spinpoint F3
1Tb WD Caviar Green
2Tb WD Caviar Green
8gb DDR3 Corsair Vengeance 1600
Sapphire Radeon 6870
