Huh?

The rest looks great, though I'd get a smaller hard drive for your OS or partition that big guy and maybe grab another hard drive for back ups.

yeh i'll probably do that, i see you have a very similar build, minus the RAM and Graphics card. How does that run and what rating would you give your build out of 10?

I wouldn't really call our builds very similar, but out of 10, if I was rating it for say a Gaming computer, it'd get an 8.5-9/10 because it will max out any game, but is still not a "high end" system. Your build uses a much faster CPU, much faster mobo and RAM, a little better Video Card, better case and PSU, so all in all I'd give your build a 9-9.5/10 if you want it for gaming.

Also, how much RAM is it supposed to say? I tried to point that out in my last post. You have it saying 16GB (1x2GB) of DDR3 1333. I think you either changed a few things and didn't edit it completely or something.

Before you get the Seagate hard drive, there was a firmware problem with alot of them...just want you to know before you get it.

Seagate isolates 'potential' Barracuda flaw
