Also..

whats your personal opinion on


Hitachi Deskstar 7K1000 1-Terabyte Hard Drive

refrence :

According to Hitachi, the drive ships in the first quarter of 2007, and will cost $399--less than the price of two individual 500GB hard drives today.

Hitachi will have three flavors of the 1TB drive; however, only the Deskstar version will be available at launch. The company also plans to offer a CinemaStar version of the drive, for use in DVR and set-top boxes, as well as an enterprise version with a certified mean time between failure rating. Both of those versions are expected in the second quarter of this year.

it is cheaper to buy 2x500gb then a hitachi deskstar because the 1tb hitachi is one of a kind seagate, western or samsung haven't got 1tb disks although seagate is rumoured to release one soon. the gtx is just as easy to install just that some cases won't fit it all the cases we have reccomended it will fit in

That looks like a nice buy. How are Samsung's reputation on hard drives?...because I've only known them, for their LCDs.

its not that.. its the fact that the drive i gave is OEM, it just has the HD, so rather than pay another 20$ for instructions.... whats the point, i just need my product... so thats y two 500 gb drives are cheaper...

that isn't really a result of the graphics card that is a combination of monitor, ram, cpu, and optical drive (dvd drive) but yes it is the same quality dvd's aren't that good quality and the fps are quite low

The graphics card is for creating pictures for the images presented by the machine errrrmmmm its hard to explain but basically any visual output that magically appears on the screen is the result of the graphics card but gaming is where higher end cards are a factor. a computer monitors were at the same stage as tvs in terms of high definition around 15 years ago

Salty,a question.. on the new egg link you posted, i found this hard drive

description:

Barracuda, one of the premiere names in hard drives, does it again. The Seagate ST3750640NS is a high-capacity, high speed drive that will handle all of your storage needs.
