Talking last piece..and a last Q?

Im pretty much done my rig atm, I just need an opti drive, any suggestions or should I just use this 200gb 7200rpm (installed on the comp im using atm) until I can move to a higher gb/rpm ina few weeks? thx to the Cyrax's tutorial as well, also.. when I first installed my cpu I was kind of worried (being expensive and all in the DS3) if the cpu is placed wrong it wont fit right? I got it in their following instructions im just wondering (dont want my cpu going "Boom" when I start it up in a few days) -thanks.

the seagate hddd are the best they have 16mb caches and 7,200rpm is all u need. unless u want to spend up big on the raptors. your cpu should be fine if u followed the instructions

The CPU can only fit in the socket, one way.

Commenting on what baron, said about hard drives. Get the Seagate 7200.10 hard drives. I think they are the faster 7200rpm hard drives, out there. Don't buy raptors. If you want something like the raptors, just RAID two Seagate 7200.10 hard drives.

actually the Samsung are slightly faster and reliable but they only have 3 year warranty compared to 5 years

Hard drives are not optical drives. Optical drives are, CD and DVD-rom drives, dvd burners, etc..
