That looks like a pretty nice system, I hope that isn't the only hard drive that you have, and I hope that it is a SATA at that. Everyone I know get this Seagate drives because they are inexpensive and then they crap out, and they lose all of their data because they only have the one crappy drive.

I recommend that you get a WD as a backup at the very least. Or just make dvd's of your info!

Once again pretty nice setup!

You know what, I don't think that it is, I thought that was an 8800 that he has posted.

sata 2 is faster but sata is currently not fully utilized as mechanical hdd cant read/write as fast as the cable provides lol and the Seagate barracuda is one of the fastest 7200rpm hdd if you want too get any faster you will have to buy a raptor which is 10000rpm and i think that they are a bit of a rip off for a slight performance boost in load times. sorry i have a slight obsession with seagate ive got (2) 500gb 7200.10 barracudas for storage and i run a server and (1) 320gb 7200.10 for programs and personal use.
